Everyday is an adventure with my son.  He is not a chill baby by any stretch of the imagination.  Even though our house is baby proofed, I find that I have to follow him wherever he goes or else he gets into trouble.  Our house has to be clean as a whistle.

He started December with a cold.

I feel so bad for him.  At this point, he has been sick 26 of 28 days in December.

One of three visits to the doctor in the month of December
