We celebrated Hadley turning one on the 17th of June. We threw her a big Camo themed birthday party (you can thank her dad for that one). We had a lot of family and friends come to celebrate with us and she was in her element. She loved opening all her presents but she couldn't understand why we kept taking them away once she got them opened, haha. It's so strange to think that my baby is 1 and that we have another baby. It feels like we were bringing Hadley home from the hospital yesterday and here she is a year old already.
McKynlee is almost 8 weeks old and is growing so fast. She already weighs 11 lbs 5 oz. She is quite the opposite of Hadley. She is much more fussy and constantly wants to be held. She's been diagnosed with reflux and we have her on a liquid reflux medicine - she hates it and cries when we give it to her . . . three times a day. She has something going on with her tummy because she would cry in pain after we would feed her and she would just constantly want to be eating. We switched her to a soy formula and give her a little bit of rice in her formula to help with making her fuller. It seems to help a little bit but she's still having trouble throughout the day. Her pediatrician referred us to a pediatric GI specialist that we see tomorrow so we can hopefully get some answers to help her be more comfortable. Seeing my baby in pain and not being able to help her is the worst feeling ever. She does sleep through the night like her sister so we at least are getting some good rest.
We've been trying to spend as much time being active and outdoors as we can. We took the girls to an outside concert, to my hometown for their annual Cherry Festival, we watched fireworks, we try to go walking but it's so hot that we have to go super early or it doesn't happen, and we've spent lots of time swimming. Hadley loves the pool and water so much that we can't even keep her out of the dog's water bowl or the toilets, lol. I'm glad that I have little water babies though. It doesn't hurt my feelings one bit to take them swimming.
