Germs and Shots

Well it's official. Little E has her first little cold. :o( I started to feel kind of crappy about a week and a half ago and I've been fighting a cold ever sense. It's not a bad one, it just annoyingly kind of lingers. I feel better for a couple days and then one day I wake up stuffy with a scratchy throat. I seem to be on the upswing but on Sunday we noticed poor Little E having some post-nasal drip happening. She is somewhat stuffy, a little sneezy, and the bulb to suck the stuff out of her nose is our friend. I tried so hard not to pass it on and I feel horrible about it. The good thing is that again, it seems to be mild, she doesn't have a temp, and it's not in her lungs. We are keeping our fingers crossed it stays mild and stays put in her nose. SSG is a little under the weather with the same symptoms so we're all just trying to get better.

Little E had her 4 month appointment today and her 4 month shots. She was a trooper as usual and she cried for about 30 seconds and then that's about it. The girl has gone through much worse, let's face it. The fun part of the appointment is that she gets weighed and we like to make guesses. SSG was pretty close and our little girl weighed 10 pounds 7.5 ounces! More impressive is that last time she was on the non age adjusted growth chart for her weight and was at the 1 percentile. Her weight today put her up to the 3rd percentile! We were pretty excited and even more excited to know that she is off the additional calories (we had to add a special formula to the breast milk) because she is gaining weight so well. We also get to cut out the iron supplement that made one bottle a day kind of stinky and I don't think she liked it very much. So lots of good news today at the doctors and now we just need to get rid of her cold.
