We’ve been having some issues with Ryder’s feedings lately. What’s new, right?!
Her acid reflux hit a whole new level recently and I think she has a milk intolerance. When she eats most of the time she acts like she’s eating fire (stole that phrase from Hannah). She screams to eat and then screams when she eats. So I took her into the doc (because we couldn’t possibly go a whole week without seeing him…) and he said he didn’t see anything more than just mild acid reflux.
And he said that it seems to be a “behavioral problem” with Ryder. She’s pitching fits and acting like she’s in pain when she’s not, basically.
She’s 4 months old? I’m confused? Does it start that early? Am I dumb or does that sound off? Can I hit him in the face a little?
I decided that it won’t hurt anything to switch to the lactose free formula to see if it helps. I will keep you posted.
But really. A behavioral problem.
My kids would NEVER have behavioral problems.
I guess I should explain the above pictures.
You see, Rory and Ryder were being so cute yesterday morning watching Sesame Street together.
(Interruption: Yes, Rory ate a marker/drew all over herself with a marker. Does this surprise anyone?!)
(Interruption two: how hilarious are their faces in this picture)
So, naturally, I decided to try and get some pictures of them in their matching outfits.
I should have abandoned the mission when neither of them would wear the vest that goes with the outfit.
But I am a) dumb and b) a glutton for punishment.
Rory was not interested in any part of the photo taking process.
Can you tell?
I have approximately 9929 pictures like the above. (Ryder continues to smile though. She is my favorite child at this point of the process. ha!)
So I promise “special treats” and bribe the mess out of Rory and the child could care less. Rory is smarter than me sometimes.
But in the end I got one cute-ish picture.
Rory insisted I take pictures of the babies and Ryder. She was so ticked off about this whole ordeal that she had a permanent scowl until I stopped trying to get her in the picture.
I want you to know that Rory took the following picture. Like for real, she took it by herself.
I wish I could go back to the day that Rory loved having her picture taken.
But since I can’t, I will just take Ryder’s picture as much as possible until she outgrows her love for the camera too.
Oh that precious smile.
So say a little prayer that we get things figured out with Ryder so she’ll start eating well again.
