A Bit Under The Weather

I'm not feeling well. I have the achy, sore throat, feels-like-my-head-is-going-to-explode type of stuff. Olivia is feeling a bit under the weather as well. It even made me miss a surprise party that I was to attend today. I love surprise parties, but Ryan had to attend this one by himself. (Happy 30th Austin!) Hopefully, Olivia and I start feeling better soon.

Thank you for your replies to my last post. I do think that Olivia has some oral sensitivities and you pair that with 2 year old pickiness and it's a frustrating combination. She has never wanted things in her mouth (pacifier, thumb, etc)and is real finicky when it comes to what goes in it. I'm going to do some research and try to figure out what I need to do to help her. I'm proud to say that for dinner tonight, she ate 1/2 grilled cheese sandwich and some peaches. That is amazing for Olivia!!

Oh, and you should hear Olivia sing the alphabet song. It is the cutest thing I've ever heard! I've been trying to get it on video, but she's being a bit camera shy. She ends the song with. . "Q, R, S, TV, E, W, X, 1,2,3." I'll try my hardest to catch it on video in the near future.

My sweet girl

There are some days when hardly a bite of food is swallowed. (Not with me, I unfortunately eat just fine.) Olivia either won't put food in her mouth or if she does, she chews it up and spits it out. Today was one of those days. I don't know if it has to do with her reflux or her prematurity or a lack of hunger or if it's behavioral. She can swallow food, but sometimes it's as if she really doesn't want to. Does anyone else experience these types of eating difficulties? I am feeling so frazzled. I'd love to hear from you.
