Height = 34.5 inches (55%) - so if you follow the multiply by 2 trick, that would put him at 5' 9" full grown (same as daddy!)
Weight = 26 lbs 5 oz (30%) -- still a light weight, but still following his growth curve so nothing to worry about!
He impressed the nurses with his knowledge about Nemo characters, and he showed off his 'digging' skills with the doctor (because he insisted on bringing Shovel, GREEN, BIG!" with us "INSIDE, MOM!". (The CAPS are because he says these with a very loud voice -- we are working on loud vs quiet voice...). Overall, the doctor told us that he is healthy, intelligent and she was impressed with how clearly he speaks. We were sent away with a 'see you next year'!
Oh, and fellow moms, one thing that worked REALLY WELL for us this trip to keep things calm and fun in the exam room while we waited for the doctor/nurse, was a sheet of stickers. I let Max stick them all over the paper on top of the table (they throw it out afterwards anyways) -- he made some really pretty artwork while we waited, and it kept him occupied!

Stef''s cold-season favorites prize pack includes: herbal hot/cold neck wrap, blistex lip moisture, kleenex, a mug and a selection of my favorite teas.
I just discovered Throat Coat Tea, from Traditional Medicinals. It is awesome. I have to talk a lot in my job and it helped so much. It tastes like black licorice but if you don't mind that it is great.

The cold season is definitely upon us. Here's how I know for SURE:
1) Lil Max has already had a few colds since the weather started turning cooler;
2) Daycare has already been closed for a day because of the high number of absences;
3) People are lining up and down the streets at flu shot clinics to try to get seasonal or H1N1 flu shots -- both seem to be in high demand this year.
Luckily, I've managed to stay mostly healthy so far this year (knock on wood), which is great because there is little that you can take when you are pregnant, other than Tylenol and decongestant nose spray... But, I do have a few tried and true, fight-the-cold away methods that have passed down from my mother to me:
- Chicken noodle soup
- Lots of fluid and lots of rest
- Warm baths
- Neti pot daily (ok, so this one wasn't from my mom)
- Warm compresses or a steam bath for the head
The list could go on and on.
I've used Zicam before, so I already know that it works. But, what GREAT timing for this campaign!! Bzzagent sent me a package of Zicam Cold Remedy Zavors to try/share, along with some coupons for GREAT savings ($2 off!).
I'm really excited to share this Zicam, along with some of my own favorite home cold remedies, so, drumroll please….for my very first giveaway!!

- 1) Zicam Zavors - a crunchy outer shell with a soft, chewable center, plus a giftie pack of my own personal favorite cold remedies
- 2) A Zicam coupon worth $2 off a Zicam purchase, plus a giftie pack of my own personal favorite cold remedies.
So, what do you have to do to win? It's simple!

Ok, so he really doesn't know what he's saying, but it was pretty darn cute when we caught him repeating "Bonjour" after his toy...
Since this video was taken, he has also taken to repeating the colors in Spanish and French off one of his other baby Einstein toys!
Start 'em early, we say! :)
