Well, it’s 8:00 at night and my girls are in bed. The youngest, A is blissfully asleep and K is probably still rolling around upstairs as she winds down.
It’s been a rough few weeks as far as A is concerned. She has been miserable, eating horribly and running low-grade fevers almost daily. I am going on the assumption that it is teething – at least I keep telling myself that. It’s easier to deal with if there is a reason. But so far, no teeth. I can see them getting closer on the bottom, but nothing about to pop through yet. She has never been one for baby food. She dislikes her cereal, but she loves apple sauce, carrots, sweat potatoes, squash, etc. Most of the time she’ll eat peaches and bananas. But the past few days, she just cries through the meal, devours her cup of formula. She will eat toast and puffs like there is no tomorrow – so I know she prefers to chewing rather than slurp off a spoon. :) But the crying/fussing the whole time is not the “normal” her. It’s common for cereal, but not her fruits. She even likes her meats, but not now.
I’m hoping her teeth come in soon so I can get some of my sanity back. I’d love to give her more table foods, but we have a family history of food allergies (K is severely allergic to dairy), so we have to take it extra slow. And once we finish cycling through her meats next week, we are challenging her on soy formula (she is on a hypoallergenic one right now due to her Reflux – GERD). So it won’t be anytime soon.<>I was spoiled with K, as her teeth never made her fussy. She ate less when she teethed, and she had the low-grade fevers, but no crying, no crankiness. Well, A is a whole different ball game. <>
So let’s hope these teeth decide to show themselves soon so her and I can stop being cranky. <>
