Fake Coughing? Really?

Yes, Cayden started fake coughing in the last few days, seeking attention. We know it's fake because the half-assed coughs are different than his real coughs, and he smiles while he's doing it. Sometimes it's cute, but mostly it's annoying, because he does it incessantly.

According to moms on BabyCenter.com, fake coughing is pretty common around 4 to 5 months of age.

I hope the fake coughing stage doesn't last too long; I'd much rather deal with piercing screams or shrieks than this ridiculous "eh-uh, eh-uh" stuff.

Charlotte's been fake coughing since the day she came home from the hospital. It's totally bizarre and we asked the doctor about it - and he said that she was just a drama queen. And he was right. She thinks it's hilarious. Me - not so much!
