Johnny wishing he could go outside. Too sick, too cold. Bad combination.

Such a happy girl, almost all the time!
On another note, Jeanine is now (so very sadly to me) entirely on formula and is doing much much better. She hasn't done the nasty projectile throwing up now for over 24 hours, and is only spitting up a tiny bit. Her eczema is also going away and her cute little cheeks are looking smoothe and rosy instead of scabby and red. I'm hoping she'll get the rest of my milk out of her system and stop the spitting up entirely. As happy as she was before, she's now much happier and a very different baby. She's sleeping well and doesn't seem to be in any pain any more. I'm so sad to have stopped breastfeeding as it was my plan to do so until she was at least 1, but I know this was best for our family. I was so stressed out trying to eliminate all dairy from my diet, and though she got better, she wasn't all the way better. I think there was something else in my diet that she was sensitive to as well, but I just couldn't devote as much time as it would have taken to do an elimination diet and keep track of everything, and also take care of my other responsibilities as wife, mommy, homemaker, and teacher to my children. So I'm becoming more and more okay, and sometimes even happy with the fact that she's a formula baby now. It's also not as inconvenient as everyone makes it out to be! There are perks, yes PERKS, to formula feeding, especially for us Type A moms, who really like to know EXACTLY how much their little ones are eating. I know, I'm crazy, lol! So that's where we're at. One BIG update to last quite a while!
