I couldn't believe how fast time has passes by and my little prince is already 5 months old on 26th October. Despite throwing a celebration for his 5 month birthday, we "celebrated" his 5 months old birthday by paying a visit to see pediatrician as he suffers for runny nose and occasional cough for about 2 weeks. The paed run a RSV test to make sure that he's free from #RS-virus infection.
#RS-virus is short for respiratory syncytial virus which, in the winter months, is a common cause of acute bronchitis in small children. It typically infects children under the age of two, particularly those aged less than six months. However, the disease is rarely life-threatening and most children recover fully without any permanent problems. RS-virus is usually transmitted from one person to another by direct contact. While an adult or older child may merely have the symptoms of a common cold, younger children and babies may develop severe exhaustion and admission to hospital may be necessary.#

Alhamdulillah, he's free from the RS virus and paed said that he shows some symptoms of asthma as hubby & I has a history of asthma during our childhood days. Thus, he was given a nebulizer treatment at the clinic.
The paed even rent us the nebulizer machine for free so that we could perform the treatment twice a day at home for 3 consecutive days. After the treatment, I noticed that his runny nose has subdue away but he still has that occasional cough though it was not as severe as before.

These days the weather is getting colder each day which makes it even harder for baby SN to have fast recovery. Nevertheless, these illness doesn't make him fussy and grumpy at all as he still shows his chomeyl smile everyday and brighten our life with his cheeky face.
Here's some update on his 5 months development :-
1) How baby SN talk:
★ like to watch other people make sounds and try to make new sounds on his own.
★ say sounds like “ah-ah-ah,” “ee-ee-ee” and “oo-oo-oo.”
★ will babble to get attention.
★ imitate other babies talk *chomeyl giler masa dia tiru budak2 kat nursery nangis & jerit2 , rasa nak cubit2* eheh
2) How baby SN grow:
★ still can't sit without support but always wants to get up on his own
★ exploring his world with his eyes, fingers and mouth.
★ reach for things when he sees them and am able to grasp them.
★ When lying down on his tummy, baby SN can push himself up with his arms. At the same time, he can turn his head to look around but still not able to push himself forward.
★ When lying on his back, he can touch his feet and play with his toes.
★ loves to put everything into his mouth so we decided to buy him a teething ring to comfort him

3) What baby SN understand:
★ he know his name when someone says it. *kat umah panggil Nazhan-chan, kat nursery panggil Shafiq-kun, kat blog panggil baby SN kui3x*
★ he can tell the difference between strangers and family.
★ he know familiar objects like his toys *especially his teddy Anpanman..tgk hidung Anpanman pun dia dah excited nak gigit*
4) How baby SN respond:
★ he like to watch other people’s faces closely as if he's gathering some data to save in his memory
★ he like to smile and talk to me when he was about to sleep *bila I nyanyi utk dodoikan dia, sibuk2 dia nyanyi jugak utk dodoikan diri sendiri.. eheh..chomeyl*
★ he will cry when someone leaves or when someone takes an object away from him.
★ he will shout and cried out loud when hubby & I attempt to clear his nose *nak korek tahi hidung macam kena dera jer..hohoho*
(nangis bersungguh2 macam kena dera)
Psssstttt: kadang2 I dengan hubby sengaja nak bagi dia nangis sebab orang cakap tangisan boleh membantu menguatkan jantung & paru2 , ye ke?
