Happy half-birthday to my baby girl! Peyton is SIX MONTHS OLD. I can’t believe I have a six month old. It seems like not too long ago we were driving to the hospital to finally meet her… but it’s also hard to remember life before her. Sometimes we forget how much of a miracle she truly is. Every time I look at her, she reminds me of how much we fought to have her. She represents my heart… my soul… and my determination when someone tells me “no”.
First, I wanted to talk about her GI issues and get that out of the way… since hopefully we won’t be talking about that too much anymore! She has been doing FANTASTIC. We put her on probiotics for about a week… she had blood in every diaper after we started it which was super odd. We stopped giving it to her and that was the LAST diaper to have blood in it! Since then, I have been eating wheat full time again AND even had bits and pieces of food with milk or soy in it and she has been doing better than ever! SUCH a relief. I am so happy she has improved so much, especially since I have continued to breastfeed her. The only thing that we are really dealing with is her eczema and we are doing our best to keep it under control! Any suggestions on treating eczema is welcomed!
We started solids with her on Thanksgiving 🙂 She has had carrots, broccoli, sweet potatoes, bananas, and pears! She absolutely LOVES sweet potatoes and pears so far. Bananas make her gag lmao We tried giving her a fresh organic banana and bananas from the jar and she hated both. She gagged for about an hour after that, she was so disgusted! Poor thing lol
Peyton has been babbling SO much. Her first “word” was “dada” of course -___- She is SO talkative and loves to listen to herself. She has the sweetest little voice! Sometimes, you can have a full on conversation with her. It’s hilarious. She has become SO friendly and smiley to almost everyone. She is such a happy, playful and silly little girl. She can be very stubborn at times though. I wonder where she gets that from? 😉 She is truly someone special and I can’t wait to see her personality come out more and more.
