One thing that keeps me feeling really good about Hanna is how well she eats. She always has.
We were so worried about her health when she was much younger, because there were so many unanswered questions about her.
Now, even though we still don't have many answers, we're very confident that she is healthy as a horse.
She's active, and happy. She's got so much energy...she makes me tired just watching her sometimes!
Lately though, she hasn't been eating well. She has her normal ginormous breakfast, barely a lunch, and the last couple days, barely a dinner.
I've been buying Ensure for her for the last couple months because she's been skipping lunch. I give her a couple swigs of Ensure and feel like she's at least getting some nutrition.
She's going through stages of loving something for a couple months, then not touching it for a couple more. I think all toddlers go through it, but with Hanna it drives me nuts!
She can't afford not to eat.
Neither of the girls eat between meals, so I know that's not it. She has an appetite, but when the food comes to her, she doesn't want it. Errr!!
Anyway, I'm hoping it's her teeth bugging her the last couple days. I didn't even think it could be something like that. Tonight at dinner she was just not happy at all. She screamed like she was hurt, and threw a temper at the same time, so I wasn't sure what to make of it. I saw into her mouth at one point and saw that her molar way in the back is coming in, so that could definitely be bugging her.
Matt got her into her jammies, gave her the bear, and threw her on the couch. Her *tongue came out, and...
Let's hope that's all it is.
I need my good eater back!!
*Ever since she stopped nursing, she sucks on her tongue to go to sleep, or for comfort. Weird, I know. :)
