Smiley Cyrus

This little baby of ours used to look like this. 
24 hours a day 7 days a week.
Seriously, for her first month of life she was never happy. Just quiet and serious or miserable.
We chalked it up to colic but I knew something was wrong.
Whenever she would eat she’d start fussing and the whole hour after eating she was crying.
She immediately got hiccups that seemed painful.
She would only eat small amounts at a time.
Eating was just miserable for her and I could tell.
So I started researching “silent reflux” in babies. Which is when they have acid reflux but it stays down in their tiny throats and stomach acid burns them almost all day long.
Most horrible thing ever for a baby to suffer through right?!
I got her on meds the next day and she has looked like this since day one taking them…
Her daddy calls her “Smiley Cyrus” and it makes her get the biggest grins on her face.
I have never seen anything cuter than this happy little baby.
P.S. totally had no idea Miley’s nickname was Smiley and we thought we were so clever. But then a thousand people kept commenting about it 🙁 at least our Smiley Cyrus just smiles and doesnt twerk all over Robin Thicke. eh?

    i love your guys' sense of humor. The crying all day long could be so frustrating but instead she has you two making silly faces. 🙂 Glad you guys got it all figured out! We have the meds and everything but once we spoke to the lactation con. she said it doesn't sound like reflux.. After this growth spurt is over she's going through which is making her so so fussy if she's still cranky during feedings or after I'm gonna try giving it to her. I love her. she is a doll.
