Steroids make you gain weight? Weird.

As I’ve mentioned, Madeleine is on a steroid to help with the inflammation in her spinal cord. This steroid is serious business!! She is eating 1.5-2 containers of baby food 4, 5, sometimes 6 times a day! Craziness. It is pure craziness. She is always hungry. In fact, that’s pretty much all we do these days is eat. Eat. Eat. Eat. My guess is that now she’s coming up on 20-ish pounds. I guess the nutritionist doesn’t need to worry about her weight, after all. And we are stepping down on the dosage so she can come off of it, but she is still eating like a maniac. I cannot believe it.

Her face before.

Her face now!

Now, for the belly, this is the real kicker.

Here's the baby belly before all of this started.

Look at that belly!!!! And that chubby face!
