Last night a cold hit Ocoee and has her coughing and snotty today. We had her 15 month check up for today so it was good timing. She was generally in a cranky mood but took the shots ok. Hubby left work and went to the doctors with us, and then straight home to bed with the same cold.
Ocoee weighed 24.1 pounds and was 32 inches long. She has grown a foot since birth and over doubled her weight. This makes us really happy since growing is hard work for babies! Her percentiles were all high 80s and low 90s. Her strawberry birthmark is fading rapidly and her leg birth marks appear unchanged. They all make her uniquely Ocoee and I love them both.
We had a steamy bath for the cold and she went to bed happily, eager for a good nights sleep. One trick we do is to elevated the head of her bed by placing a pillow under the mattress. This allows her to breathe and drain mucus much better and always leads to an improved night sleep.
