It's Official

Facebook has been taking up too much of my internet time and I haven't been blogging...not good.

So here's an update on Baby Sarah:

At her last doctors appointment on Tuesday, May1st, she was a whopping 15lbs 4oz and 23 inches long!! Yup, quite the little porker apparantly. Obviously no problems here with adequate milk production. he he.

She also had her first vaccinations - that did not go over so well. When the doctor put the needle in her leg, she stopped suddenly, got this really confused look on her face, and then let out a shrill "Waaaaaaa!!" And then she kept staring at the doctor - he said she was making sure to remember his face for next time. Poor little girl had quite the fussy day yesterday. And it seems when she's really fussy the best thing to soothe her and put her to sleep is the vacuum cleaner - go figure!

Sarah also has eczema on her arms, legs, and tummy as well as continuing with a bit of cradle cap on her head. It's not too bad I guess but it makes her skin quite dry and I have to keep cream the doctor prescribed on her all the time intermingled with a good lathering of olive oil. So at any given time of the day my baby either smells like the pharmacy or the kitchen. Whatever happened to smelling just like a baby? Oh well...

Here's a few recent pics...

Chillin in the bouncy chair.

Snoozing in mom and dad's bed

Enjoying a sunny day outside with mommy (mommy really needs to get some sun!)
Mommy put me down for a nap...on a camping chair! (don't worry...mommy was keeping a very close eye on me)
Not very happy about the reason for those bandaids on my legs.
See y'all on facebook. Bye for now,Myrna

Love her purple striped shirt with the jeans. She's like a little girl...and so cute sleeping in the camping chair.

Wow...she is growing like a weed. They grow up way too fast don't they. I always wished that the baby stage would last longer than it does. Caitlynn had the baby eczema too and her skin was like sand paper....so much for baby soft skin. lol.

I had a really bad rash when I was pregnant and I bought this soap called "Pine Tar Soap" and its for things like eczema you just wash her with it when she has a bath it works really well...you should check it out...it may help just a suggestion
