First real cold

Hollie has her first official cold, and can I tell you, it breaks my heart. Her nose is so stuffy & runny. Plus it's draining into her throat, so she's coughing & sneezing. Of course, she wants Mommy to hold her all day (but I don't mind that part). When she started wheezing, I decided to take her into the doc. Her lungs were a little wheezy, but we caught it soon enough that it shouldn't turn into full blown RSV. They sent us home with a breathing machine so hopefully she'll start feeling better soon. She's only 4 months old & already such an example to me. Even though she doesn't feel well, she is still smiling & cooing with her hoarse little voice. Since Hollie has been here, I've understood more what the Savior meant when he said to become as a little child. She is so patient & happy & full of love. I think we could all be a little more like them.

On as side note...
Hollie hasn't had her official 4 month appt for immunizations yet, so it was interesting to see how she's grown since her 2 month appt. She weighs 11 lbs 12 oz, which puts her between the 5th & 10th percentile. They didn't measure her length, though. They're going to do that when we take her in for her shots.

I am glad it is nothing serious and you did take her in. Always better safe than sorry. Poor little thing. Let us know if we can help.

My poor little daughter-in-law! I can't believe she only weighs 11 pounds! I think D weighed 11 pounds at his 2 month. He is officially 21 pounds! And off the charts for height. I hope little Hollie starts feeling better so we can hang out soon!

So, I looked at Annie's chart from her four month appointment and she was 1 whole oz. heavier 11 lbs 13 oz. Crazy huh. I keep saying I would look sorry it took me so long! Hope she is doing better today. Give her a kiss from her auntie!

I am sorry that she isn't feeling well! It was fun to see you at the doctor though! Hope all goes well for her!
