Test Results

Well, the test was inconclusive.  Drat!  I'm starting to think it's more than one thing.  We have a Dr appointment today with Children's for her 4 month (corrected) check up.  It is more of an occupational therapy thing, but I'm going to talk to them about her digestive issues too. 

All the books say that happy-spitters (babies who spit up a lot but it's not a big deal) peak around 3 months and then improve.  She was still getting worse after that, but then I figured that since she was a preemie, I should give her an extra month.  Well, she's now 5 months old and she doesn't seem to be feeling very well.  Poor kiddo!  She's doing great in every other aspect, though!  Hopefully we can get to the bottom of this.  Prayers are appreciated.

Dairy Test

Well, I've gone without milk protein for 2 whole weeks.  At first it was super difficult... I just didn't know what to eat!  But after a few days, and a trip to Winco, it wasn't too hard.  Turns out that almond milk is DELICIOUS!  Mmmmmm.  It is sooo good on cereal and in tea!  And, peanut butter goes on pretty much anything that cream cheese does. 

It's hard to tell if Willow is doing better or not.  Sometimes I think that her fussiness is waaay better, and other times it doesn't seem to matter what I do.  It could be that she is allergic, but is also reacting to other foods as well.  If that is the case, there is some change, but not complete improvement.  It would have been so gradual that it's hard to tell.  So, a test is needed!!

Today is the day.  As I write this, I have a tall glass of delicious milk sitting next to me.  I am so excited!  I love milk.  Ahhhhhh.  Well, here goes!!
