The latest stats

Emily met with the nutritionist today so that means she was weighed and measured. Here are the figures:

Height - 31 7/8 inches
Weight - 22 pounds 11 ounces

She gained about 9 oz and grew less than an inch this month (maybe the height is going to taper off at some point - only God knows).

She is doing well, other than the fact that she has been battling congestion for a while. It is not in her chest, it is just in the back of her throat. She has had some struggles with gagging and wretching trying to get it up. Those episodes are not fun at all! We took her to the pediatrician a couple of weeks ago. She put her on Amoxicillin for about a week. That actually made things worse! The meds are done now & she seems to be back to where she started. Maybe she just has allergies? Her dad has allergies so maybe that is just one more thing she gets from him...
