It’s amazing how one day a baby can have no idea how to do something, and the next day they’re doing something new and it’s constant and it’s like they’ve been doing it since the day they were born.
E discovered her tongue yesterday. I’ve never seen her stick her tongue out. Yesterday morning, as soon as she woke up, she stuck out her tongue and she spent half the day with it hanging out of her mouth. She blows the occasional raspberry and looks at us proudly because how cool is this new skill? It’s the kind of cute that makes me truly squeal out loud.
Although E’s rash is gone, we’re still battling some pretty awful constipation. For the past two weeks, we’ve cut her solids back to once a day (about 1-2 ounces max), we give her Miralax nightly, we’ve upped her daily water intake to 3-4 ounces, and we give her an infant probiotic every day. And somehow she STILL ends up constipated. Her 9-month checkup is in less than a week, so it’ll be the number one question for the doc. In the meantime, I’m doing a poo dance because #momlife.
