Charlotte's Journey Home

Just a Regular Kid, Sort Of

Gaining weight but her pants still fall off

Charlotte has had a runny nose since Saturday and spiked a little fever in the wee hours of Monday morning so I took her to the doctor this morning. We ruled out ear or bronchial infections and decided that she just has a cold and her molars are erupting. The molars are really painful looking—you can see the four corners of the tooth, but you can also see the pink gum in the center. It makes me cringe just thinking about what has to happen to have the tooth come in fully.

But the real reason I’m writing is to update her weight:

22 lbs. 3 oz.

That’s Charlotte’s current weight. That’s up 4 ounces since August 28. I feel like we can watch her grow, she’s catching up so fast.
