Look at that stink eye! OMG, This one has a stink eye. She really is trouble. She uses the smiles to lure you into a goo goo da da submission.
And the doctor wasn’t happy with her today. Yes, her breathing is MUCH better, and the doc basically declared her cured of the nasty croup that she’s had the past week or so. However, she’s not cured of the low weight percentile, and though she’s gained just shy of 12 ounces in a month, the doc said it wasn’t enough. Sigh.
She also should be eating two solid meals a day. And solid meals with high calorie foods like avocado and butter! We get maybe two solid meals out of Ashlin a week. This kid is so not interested in eating solids. She does think puffs, waffle strips and toast sticks are fun, but put a spoon near her mouth and she’ll turn her nose up at it. She just doesn’t want to be fed.
I’ve tried sweet potato and pears, which she seemed to like before all the vomiting started. But no more. I’ve tried several different store-bought purees, but no luck there either. Teagan has ended up finishing some of the purees mixed in her yogurt, or as “applesauce.”
We never had this issue with Teagan. She started eating food – solids – and never looked back. Well, except tonight, when she didn’t want pasta, but only cereal milk. That’s a different story. Teagan was trying to feed herself by 6.5 months, chowing down on all sorts of fruit and vegetables, except mashed peas, by 7. She had all sorts of “ethnic” food – Chinese, Indian, Puerto Rican food – well before a year. She ate with gusto.
This one doesn’t.
And she seems to have a drinking problem too.
