This is Paige enjoying a PB & J right before her blood test ( what a horrible experience that was, but she survived. Payton was soo cute first making sure everyone in the lab knew she DID NOT need shots and secondly trying so hard to comfort her sister by talking and singing to her during the blood draw).
I pushed up her 15 mos apt because Paige was still not walking and for a few days didn't even seem interested at all! During the visit the Dr thought her muscle tone was fine as she stands up by herself, walks with little assistance and is definitely strong enough to walk, just being stubborn about letting go. At this time however she was concerned about her weight. She is a good eater but does not eat that much. Sooo she wanted to do some blood work, stool sample and have us meet with a nutritionist to see what we can add in to her diet. Luckily all her labs came back great, nothing out of the ordinary. The nutritionist thought she was eating well but wants us to try adding a few more snacks throughout the day and give more fatty things like guacamole (which she loves), peanut butter and try adding butter to most of her foods. There was also a issue with milk. We think she is Lactose intolerant as when she was on whole milk she (and us) were miserable. She would not sleep well waking up with belly ache, wasn't drinking much which could have caused her not to gain much weight. So we went back to formula and will re-try to introduce lactose free milk this time. Paige is definitely a Mama's girl right now, but is overall mostly a happy baby who LOVES playing with her big sissy! I love watching them grow together! Paige is so lucky to have such a great big sister!
