My little Sadie has been getting some extra help. We have been lucky enough to score some benefits through the Regional Center which is a program that helps children at risk to have developmental issues. We've so far had an OT visit, a developmental assessment -which went fine- as far as right now she seems on track for a baby who's been through as much trauma as she has and who was born so small. But yesterday we had a visit from a nutrutionist and Sadie, for the first time, had actually lost weight. A few weeks ago she was 10 lbs. 12 oz. and now she's 10 lbs. 10 oz. It was upsetting. But, we were told not to worry.
We're going to up the concentration in her formula and try to give her solids even more often. This morning was operation "get the beeyotch to enjoy some tasty avocado." It immediately went horribly awry when, as soon as she got a taste of the "so high in healthy oils and fats" treat, she make a face like I'd just given her a whole chicken liver and projectile vomited all over me and her newly washed bouncy seat. Maybe if I'd added onions, cilantro, garlic and lemon juice she would've totally got why people eat this stuff.
Here's the good news. The nutritionist took measurments of her whole body and apparently -I don't want to brag- but her upper arm circumference is in the upper percentile for her corrected age. Oh yeah, my tiny future Ultimate Fighting champion is getting herself ready to throw down.
