eating strike...OVER

Last week, Andie was on an eating strike. Drinking 3 oz of formula a day. Nursing for a nanosecond. Eating a half a jar of baby food...and only under protest.

Nights were no fun either. Not that they ever are, but they got worse. I didn't think it was possible.
I took her to the orthopedist who deemed her leg to be healing well. I took her to the pediatrician...no ear infection, no pneumonia, nothing. I think they both thought I was crazy.
Finally, it's over. As quickly as it started, it's over.
Now, she is eating everything in sight. Nursing like a champ. Even took a bottle from her mother (never, ever happened before).

And, she's excited about it eating and you can't shovel it in fast enough.

Kids are crazy. And yours are huge! (And adorable.) They've got reserves.

yep! Just let that be a little lesson we moms ALL have to learn the hard way. Sometimes, kids have quirks, and we have to just roll with em! Lord does she look adorable in the pics! Happy, happy baby!
