Hooray for progress!!!!
In crappy news, Maryam has started pulling her own hair out when she sleeps. The past few mornings, or as long as a week, I can't remember, Maryam wakes up with gobs and gobs of hair in her fingers, on her clothes and on her sheets. I know her hair isn't just falling out because there isn't excessive hair in the bathtub after a bath or in her comb after I comb her hair. My BFF Christi did some research and found that toddlers do this as a self-soothing tool when they're stressed. GREAT, my two year old is stressed. I'm guessing her new schedule and all the food she's eating is the major cause of her stress. Thoughts?
UPDATE: Maryam ate an entire 4 ounce jar of baby food at dinner tonight. It took about an hour and 20 minutes, but she ate it all! That particular food was sweet potatoes with turkey and it contained 30 calories. HOORAY!!!!
