18 months-old, part two

You have hives.

According to the doctor yesterday morning, since you’ve had a cold for several weeks, it’s not unusual to get hives.

Big, red, uncomfortable looking splotches all over your body.

Daddy tries to take at least one photo of you every day. But not today. You look too miserable. But you didn’t act miserable.

You didn’t wear a shirt for part of the day, and you had a really light top on the rest of the day.

And then Mommy started giving you BENADRYL®  and that has helped.

You were awake around 3 this morning coughing, which you do every few nights for nearly a month, because of your runny nose. We gave you some cough medicine, and a half hour later, more BENADRYL® and you slept the rest of the night.

You ate bowl after bowl of cereal this morning. So you have a good appetite.

Despite eating a lot, all day, you’ve only gained less than two pounds in the past four months.

You’re getting longer, but not much heavier.

    Getting longer and not heavier in an active child can be normal. Obviously I can’t comment on your child. But we see babies/toddlers who are having growth spurts and are suddenly moving around a lot more crawling or walking, not holding onto as many calories as a result
