Way Back When-esday

I decided to join Ms. Cheryl over at Twinfatuation for Way Back Whens-esday this week.

When I was looking for pretty blue eyes on for Sunday's post, I found this picture of Marguerite. To me, it's just sooooo sweet and innocent. She was just over 4 months old when it was taken at Christmas last year.

You have to understand -- Marshie has been the hardest baby I've had to deal with. She could not seem to stomach breast milk OR any other formula given to her for the first 6-7 months. We finally found ONE that worked so/so.... and it was a soy formula that constipated her. So yes, her first year was a battle. But honestly, at 10 months they had us switch her to cows milk and solid foods and she's been GREAT ever since. You would not believe that she had been such a hard baby to deal with now that she doesn't seem to have the stomach problems.

It broke my heart at times because there were people that honestly didn't like her/refused to be around her. She cried. ALL the time. But this picture shows just why she was so lovable, even during all that.

My sweet little Marguerite: (I love you baby girl!)

Now don't forget to pop over to Cheryl's Place and see who else is playing along.

Those eyes! Oh! So sweet! And I love your perspective on her eating challenges and how you knew there was a sweet little soul in there, regardless of her cries of discomfort--

She was mad at the world a lot, sort of like a microteen - I love her and I love her Mama!

Oh look at that sweet little face. Hard to believe she was a difficult baby.
