Busy Busy Busy

Last week one day at breakfast. Gus has been really good about wearing his glasses and pretty good about wearing the patch, but it will take some time for this all to start working. His soft little toddler skin around his eye (where we patch it) was sore the first week or so, so raw it was bleeding a little, but seems to be healing up this week. We have also been battling a weird allergy issue, and he has had hives off and on for a few weeks. Today he got a prescription for Clari ton and Zyrtec, which he will take both every day for the next month to see if that stops him from breaking out.

Hazel, hanging out in her bouncy chair last week. We have been battling a little baby acne and eczema with her. The doctor called it Seborrhea today, which is like cradle cap but on your face. Today the doctor gave us some ideas of over the counter remedies to try and if we have no luck with those, we can try something prescription. Hazel weighed in at 12 lbs and 15 ounces today- 90%! Her length was 23 1/2 in, 90% and her head circumference is 15 1/2 in, or 75%. She is a very healthy little, or shall I say big, lady.

Last weekend we tried to take Gus to the zoo to see the animals, but it rained- downpoured- so much that the zoo lost electricity and we never made it past the guest relations building. We didn't see one animal. We waited the rain out for about an hour, but because there was no electricity, we couldn't even go in the indoor exhibits. We will have to try again soon, as Gus loves animals.

Hazel giving her bro some moral support by sporting an eye patch.

On our way back to Iowa for Grandma Shirley's funeral, Gus was awake the entire time and ate a half a bag of cheesy popcorn- the treat he picked out at the gas station along the way. At least it kept him entertained.

After the funeral, we ventured back to KC for Hazel's baptism on Sunday (yesterday). I was terrible about taking pictures this past week, but luckily my sister stepped in and took some at the ceremony. Here is gma Sue and Hazey.

Well, we tried. Another failed family picture. Hopefully we get a good one soon that I can use as a blog header.

Hazel wearing her lovely little bracelet from Godmother Trish. Or as Andi calls it, her fairy godmother :)

Okay, so I took waaay too many pics of Hazel last night- but how could I resist!? She was a supermodel- and just kept smiling for the camera. I love her little smile, and her skin cleared up for a few days- so I was able to take awesome pictures.

Hey girlfriend!

Telling mommy a story.

Daddy and I got Hazel some new headbands and bows for her baptism gift. Here is one of the adorable bows.

Gus insisted on wearing one as well. Isn't he beautiful?

I love your pictures... and your honesty! (Another failed family photo...we had an episode like that last month with a professional photographer at Andy's parents farm) AH!! You have the cutest and luckiest kids ever! :)

My son is 7 weeks and just diagnosed with seborrhea. He has red bumps all over his face. His pediatrician told me it will clear up on its own but it's just getting worse. What were the at home remedies you tried? Did they work? Please help! My email is I really appreciate some help since his doc isn't telling me anything!
