Free Standing, Teeth/Cold and Gym Kids

Free Standing!
Kian is now free standing more often and for longer periods of time! I think that going to Gym Kids has really helped him since he’s seeing other kids his age walk. I seriously expect him to stand more often and start walking in the next few months :)

Today was our second to last day of Gym Kids. It doesn’t start back up until the end of August! I can’t believe that it will be that long! I know that Kian really likes it! He actually was venturing off without me for most of the day today! He really is doing great!

Kian has another tooth!

Today Kian was looking up with his mouth open so I took the opportunity to take a look and sure enough there was part of a molar sticking through! It’s on this top right side and only half of it is through. I also gave a bit of a feel to make sure it was a tooth and not just something white and I felt a few more bumps where teeth are getting ready to pop out…also molars. Not looking to the fun of those coming through and I am sure he’s not either! But I know he needs more teeth than the 4 (almost 5) that he has now :)

4th of July
My friend Martina and her boyfriend Paul came over to celebrate the 4th with us :) Martina is a friend of mine from college and she lives in Denver right now. Paul lives in Fresno (which isn’t far from here)….they met through eHarmony :) Paul is a really nice guy and we all had a great time together! I can’t believe that it’s been about 3 ½ years since I have seen Martina! We had a lot of catching up to do! Not to mention, she had to get used to the fact that I have a baby! lol! I sure wish she lived closer, but I am so thankful for the time that I did have with them.

Kian’s cold/teething
Kian has a bit of a cold or it’s symptoms from teething…right now I am not sure. He has a really runny nose and a bit of a cough. He’s also been really cranky…so it could be sick and teething at the same time. Last time I thought he was teething he ended up in the hospital with respiratory problems. Kian’s Ped told me that if he started to show signs of being sick I am to give him the Pulmicort…we just stopped it on Saturday :( I can’t believe that I am going to be giving it to him again. I am going to give him a breathing treatment with the steroid (plumicort) tonight before bed. Tomorrow I am going to put a call into the Peds office for a referral to a respiratory specialist…hopefully we can get this looked into more and see if there is something more we can do or what the best way of treatment is. I would feel better talking to someone who just handles breathing issues.

So, if you think about it, say a little prayer for him and for Jamie and me as we have this cold too (runny nose, cough…)…Jamie’s been battling it for about a week now and I just started getting it a few days ago.

We will be praying for Kian and I hope he doesn't get sick again =( I have to say, that I think you already have the best form of treatment for him at this time. Be greatful that the inhaler is working and that he doesn't require anything more invasive to help him with his breathing issues. Inhalers are a great and safe way to keep his asthma and cold issues in check... so DON'T hesitate to give it to him as SOON as you think he is having a problem! It won't hurt him =) Keep us posted on what they say at the Dr.
Love, Jamey =)
