Pais has discovered her tongue.

Such a beauty!!!
She has been so sick for so long, we thought she had colic and have tried many formula changes, etc... I finally got down to the bottom of it when she had been throwing up every single bottle for over a week. I mean projectile, EVERY bit! I took her to the Dr. and didn't get to see the regular one. He just said oh she has a headcold and she will start keeping the bottles down when she feels better. I didn't buy it! So, a few days later I took her back in, I just had a bad feeling and she was stilll throwing up constantly! So, Dr. Clawson had me take her to the hospital for a series of test. And we found out her liver wasn't functioning right! It scared me! I didn't want to deal with another sick baby! I felt so bad for her. She really did have something wrong with her for all these months that she was unhappy and throwing up, at first not every bottle but a few times a day.
Anyhoo, after more tests we found out she had CMV. And we are thinking this is what was causing her liver to have issues. She lost 6oz in less than 4days. Its scary, they were ready to admit my sweety. But she was started on a new formula, the really expensive kind, and slowly started keeping bottles down. She gained 2oz and we kept her out of the pediatric unit.
We go in tomorrow for another liver test, and are hoping it is getting better, so she can get feeling better. Paisli is so talented. She has a new trick. We put her arms above her head and then pulls them down real stiff and tight as we say big! I will have to post a video of it! She can't sit yet and really doesn't do much, CMV is just like Mono. It really messes with your body, making you weak and it stays with you forever. I hope she can start getting better soon.
I love having a teeny baby just so it seems like she is younger for longer, but I want her to develop as she is supposed to. If she can gain a pound or so soon we will start baby food, but not until she is almost sitting up and doubles her birth wait and we have a ways to go! We took her to Bear Lake for the first time this past weekend and she got to sport her teeny weeny yellow bikini! What a way to spend your 5month bday! We didn't do anything but relax since she is still recovering, and I will update as soon as we get the results from tomorrows tests!
