Not sure you can tell that Declan is super sick in this picture (I can--glossy/swollen eyes, red nose..freshly cleaned by mommy, etc):
Seriously, our sweet little boy has been smiling and laughing for the most part through the worst illness he's had to date. We've had TWO pricey trips to the pedi to be told that he has a bad cold and respiratory infection and to watch for RSV. Yikes. So, this morning when he woke up wheezy, I freaked. But he's fine. We're not out of the woods but were hopefully a weekend of downtime and extra TLC at home will help him heal. It's so heartbreaking when you can't do anything for your snotty, coughy, wheezy little man. (Side note- I know we are super lucky to have a mostly happy sick kiddo. The nurses and doctors at both visits commented on his smiling and good spirits).
Moving on, Declan is now sitting (boppy supported) for awhile before toppling over. Though he's not much for sitting, he did CRAWL yesterday. WHaaaa?? I couldn't believe it. I had my camera out taking pictures (shocking, I know) and I flipped it to video mode once I realized he was crawling to a toy. I'll upload that video soon when I remember how to do it. Here's the sweets sitting with his favorite crunchy book:
