What Oral Aversion?

I am so proud of Bella.  I can’t even express it.   Bella has overcome her oral aversion.  I can’t believe it.  Look at all of those fingers in her mouth – no vomiting, no gagging, nothing.  WAHOO!!!

Loving on our girl!

Our GI appointment this week was interesting.  The doctor decided to review her growth.  She pulled out her charts.  I pulled out my DS charts, which I consider to be more accurate.  We discussed the fact that she has lost weight (again) for the sixth month in a row.  Not good.  But the worse news is that she hasn’t grown in length in the last four months.  And her liver is enlarged.  And she’s still anemic.  She ordered a bunch of labs (poor baby) and increased her feeding rate.  We’ll see.  The good news is she is so cute – and she was showing off her ability to almost sit without support!  :)   Guess who went to church again today!!!

You're right, she is so cute. And getting cuter and cuter, which shouldn't be possible because she was one of the cutest babies I've ever seen. That is so nice she gets to go to church with you! I LOVE taking Kaelyn to church.

She is precious! Hoping the weight thing is figured out! It took quite awhile to get Addy's feedings worked out!

I am sure you will figure out her weight issue. She is still beautiful.

I have been dealing with trying to get my daughter's weight up as well. I recently ran across this website http://childrenandbabiesnoteating.com/index.html that has so much information on kids who won't eat and why (plus tests to help figure out the why) and what to do about it. It's a great resource.

Best to you all.
