Quick Nathan Update

Nathan back to his smiley baby self

Nathan’s doing fine, he’s back into his usual routine again. He’s still nursing a slight nagging cough, but it’s mostly in the morning that he coughs now. He’s eating well and smiling and gurgling a lot (as in the photo), which is a good sign. For the last couple of nights he hasn’t woken up coughing in the middle of the night – even though he got back to sleep quite easily previously – and he’s back with his Nanny during the day. He’s looking forward to seeing Grandma and Grandad this weekend (well we’re projecting our emotions onto him since really we can’t tell what he’s thinking :-)).

Thanks to all of you who asked about him!


  1. I just love it when they are a few months old and you start getting all those smile 🙂

    But your right when they are so small it’s hard to tell if it’s a smile or just indigestion.

    Hi Pauline

    There’s nothing nicer than talking to him and seeing him smile like that. He’s so sweet.

    I suppose that the next phase is teething. I’m not so worried about that. Compared to being in hospital with an oxygen mask vaporising stuff into his nose, it’ll be easy… 🙄


  3. Oh good! I’m so glad to hear/see that he’s feeling better. That smile is adorable. I’m sure you’re happy to be back on smiles and off hospital oxygen masks!! 🙂

    Hi Carrster,

    I certainly am happy that he’s off the masks and out of the hospital bed. I was hoping to grab a photo of him in the mask with the vapours coming out of it, but the day I remembered the camera they stopped his mask treatment. I’d rather have him not needing the mask than a photo of him with it though!


  5. Hey, how cute is he? Who does he look most like? And yes, we have WiFi all over the house. Airport card (or something like that) in the laptop. Even works in the back of my closet. I’m just guessing. ; )

    Hi Allison,

    Apparently he looks like me. But then people keep saying he’s cute, so is that me fishing for indirect compliments?

    Rockin’ to have WiFi all over the house. When I get my laptop (soon I hope) I should be able to work out a similar setup. Right now I’m restricted to downloading blog feeds to my Palm Zire and reading them around the house, at work on breaks, etc.


  7. He is beautiful and very alert for a babe of only four months. Noting is more painful than having a sick baby. No sleep. All worry.
    I’m glad he’s on the mend.

    Thanks for dropping by!

    Nathan is indeed on the mend, thanks for your nice message. He sure is spoilt for compliments here!
