He's also finally in the crib full time! We started doing nap time in the crib because there had been a few too many close calls on our bed of him getting to the edge. He needs to be contained. It's been going pretty well. Although, there was a late night where we listened to Penatonix, Hallelujah about 10 times before I snuck out of the room. It's weird, with Nixon we would let him cry because we were in a top apartment with no side neighbors, but here, we have neighbors on both sides and above and Nixon sleeping, so we're a little more cautious of letting him cry it out (although there are definitely times we do).
I love when kids hit milestones, it makes me excited for them.

Fast forward to the beginning of the week and he had the barking cough and strider, but was his happy energetic self. I didn't want to take him in if they were just going to tell me put him in a room with steam, run a humidifier at night, etc. I called the nurses line and not 15 seconds into me explaining the situation, she hear Crew in the back and said I needed to bring him in. We took him in, the doctor listened for a couple seconds and knew it was croup, sent in a prescription for an oral steroid and sent us on our way. Within about 8 hours of the steroid the strider had almost gone away completely. After a few days, he was good to go. His sleeping has taking a toll for the worse, but he's healthy now. Right now, that's all that matters.

Crew is starting to show signs of mobility and I'm a little nervous. It's been a while since I've had a mobile baby in my house. One thing that I remember is once they start moving, it's a whirlwind for the next year of protecting them, and everything in the house!
