s_aldrich 4 months for this way too grown girl!
You've officially found the sticker and want to take it off, so mama is going to have to get creative. You would much rather stand up than be sitting. Sneezing makes you giggle every time & your own feet are some of the best toys around. You bring more joy to our lives everyday and we just love watching you learn! #sweetstellarae #4monthsold

s_aldrich Taking a moment to rest & praise God. We met with a dentist today to see if we couldn't get to the root of Stella's feeding issues as opposed to treating symptoms. As soon as we walked in, "Oceans" was playing and I about burst into tears right there. I knew right then God was going to talk to us. The dentist looked at Stella and finally APPROPRIATELY looked in her mouth and confirmed that she does indeed of have a severe #liptie that extends into her palate. We are set to have a revision (a 30 sec process involving a laser) done next Thursday and he truly believes it will make a world of difference for her. #praisehim #dontworryitsdecaf 7d

s_aldrich I'm not one to do this, but it's been a hard week at the Aldrich house. Some of you may know, but Stella has struggled to eat since the beginning--we initially thought it was just latching but she also had issues with a bottle as well. After seeing ENT & speech path, we found she has reflux that had damaged her esophagus and made it so painful to swallow that she sometimes just wouldn't do it, causing her to choke. Not to mention fussiness, inability to sleep, gagging, and copious amounts of spit up. We started a new medicine 2 weeks ago that was supposed to be the fix all. Not only did it not work, we've seen regression in the little progress we had made. She's had 4 severe choking incidents in a day and a half and has an uncoordinated suck again. Our ped has us thickening liquids now to reduce her risk for aspiration and keep milk heavier in hopes it won't reflux as much. I'm asking for prayers that this helps our little girl stop feeling so yucky and that we can continue to work on a plan of care that will make things easier for her. And for this momma's sanity, because it is in short supply as of late. 3w

s_aldrich 3 months young already!
You think blowing bubbles is hilarious and your gummy little smile is contagious. You just recently decided you love tummy time. You believe night time sleep is sacred (thank goodness, because so do Momma & Daddy. Here's to hoping you still feel that way next month )

s_aldrich Changing reflux medication for this little girl. It should be a week before it takes affect aka, it's like we aren't giving her anything. I've hated watching her hurt, but have been so amazed by her resiliency and happy spirit through it. She giggles at me thru tears & smiles after waking herself up gagging on reflux. Little momma is determined to be happy in spite of feeling yucky. Post spit up waterfall smiles for example. 1mon
  •   prhiatt She must feel better after that yucky stuff comes out.1mon
  •   laurendmccoy89 Could changing bottles help?? I hope she feels better soon!! 1mon
  •   s_aldrich @laurendmccoy89 yeah, we've done that. Different bottles, preemie nipples, gas drops/gripe water, chiropractor, essential oils. I'm on an elimination diet that rules out all major food allergy sources. She's been to ENT & speech path because of the difficulties it caused feeding. She's just one of those that is going to require medication for it. Thanks though! 1mon
  •   abbynichols Poor baby and poor momma! I know how much it hurts you too, seeing her hurt. Prayers for the new meds to kick in and bring relief swiftly! 1mon
  •   laurendmccoy89 @s_aldrich I had just heard of that with babies with acid reflux. I have it as an adult so I only imagine how she feels. I hope yall get some relief!! 1mon
