So, in case you hadn't noticed, I haven't updated this blog (or my design blog) in quite some time. Well, a lot of it has to do with this girl. Am I saying that Louisa has made my life hard? No. Harder? Perhaps yes.
It's not like I had things together before she came along, but having two kids has definitely been much rougher on me than having one. A lot of it has to do with their ages. And a lot of it has to do with Louisa's tummy issues. She's always cried a lot and had bouts of intense pain and (sorry if this is TMI) weird bowel movements.
We finally got her in to see a specialist at Children's Hospital on November 9th and the good news is that there is nothing wrong with her internally. The bad news is that she's irritated by dairy in my breastmilk and she's having a hard time eating solids without (again probably TMI) getting constipated. We'd already figured out the dairy thing on our own so I've avoiding all things dairy until she's weaned and we are taking it really slow with the solid foods.
As long as we do that and keep her on a mild laxative, she's happy as a clam. That has made life a lot easier on her end. Of course right as we got her figured out, Rock's been having issues with sleeping and regressing on potty training. Wahoo.
