Nicholas has recovered from his pneumonia and double ear infection but continues to battle a bit of a stuffy nose; that time of year. He still gets an occasional nebulizer treatment. As you can see, he's so used to it he's giving them to himself. Last week at the Pediatrician, he weighted in at 16lbs 10 ounces. He's now in 6-12 month clothes. We bought some of the 12 month clothes awhile ago thinking it would be forever until he fit into them. Wow, how kids grow. He is moving through the developmental milestones, which is great. He sits with little support and now rolls from his stomach to back. We're having a tough time getting his tummy time in as he instantly rolls onto his back.
As you can see, Nicholas's first costume was a pumpkin. He didn't seem to thrilled with our choice in costumes but luckily, he can't express his opinion just yet :)! We had about 60 kids come for trick-or-treating. Nicholas helped hand out candy in his costume. He seemed to enjoy seeing all the kids in their costumes.
We were able to see the Badgers beat the Hawkeyes last weekend. What a game! Nicholas enjoyed seeing his great aunt Judy and uncle Dave. It was his first over night trip to a house other than his own, and he did great. He stayed at home for the game with some great babysitters (a PICU nurse and a nursing student) while the Moms went to the game. It was nice knowing he was in great hands. Nana and Papa Rasmussen visited this weekend along with Great Grandma Ivalou and Great Aunt Ann. Nicholas loved the extra attention and not having to take all his naps in his crib. He looks forward to seeing Grandma and Papa Mancuso next weekend. Everyone is getting their visits in before the first snow fall.
We hope you all had a safe and fun Halloween!
