valkyrie turned a year old yesterday so i guess its time for an update

shes 31 inches tall now, shes been walking since 9 months (although shes having balance problems these last few weeks) shes talking up a storm, she says mama, daddy (dah dee), yeah, no, more, baba (bottle), down, up, grandma (gumma), hi, bye, go, stop, and more. however her health has gone down and gotten very very poor, she spends most of her days sleeping or screaming, she only will take 8-12 oz of formula a day the most i can get into her is 16 oz, she is off solid foods (just formula and water) because they think she may have a chronic health condition that causes severe food allergies and problems with the esophegus, she has gone from nearly 24 lbs to under 22 lbs in the past month, other then that she is doing very well

I can't believe it's been a year! Her talking sounds amazing! Mika only says 4 or 5 words. I'm so sorry to hear about all of her health problems and i really hope she gets better soon

ohhhh. sorry to hear about her health. nothing worse than seeing your little baby having a rough time like that huh? hope things work out and it gets taken care of. even with all that she sounds like she's doing really well with her development so hopefully this will just be a bump in the road. good luck and good vibes sent your way.


and of course, Happy Birthday!

Happy belated birthday. I hope the docs can figure out what's wrong and her health starts improving. Having a sick little one can be rough.

Sorry it took me so long to reply! I kept forgetting to check this forum.

So sorry about all the health problems. It's so discouraging to see your child suffer. Hopefully the dr's can figure out something to help her.
