1: Lauren came into this world screaming at 3:10 pm and continued to scream for 6 months. She had a very "sensitive" stomach. We tried all different types of formulas and football holds. Nothing seemed to work. We'd never heard of a baby who didn't like the stroller or carseat! She screamed about everything. It was a long 6 months.....but oh how we loved her. | February 4th | Dr. Taylor..... | Note to self: I now have 60 pounds to drop for a 6.06 pound baby.. Should've realized this could happen a couple of burgers ago ;)
