Christian has had his first "real" smiles. About 2 weeks ago. He has had a little case of baby acne, so I haven't really taken many pictures. I thought it was clearing up, but he has still been covered in red bumps. But I've now realized that these bumps aren't acne, but rather a rash of some sort. His face is clear, but his neck, chest and back are all covered in red bumps and his arms and legs have just plain bumps. He looks like he's wearing a onesie! I think it's the laundry soap. I used Method baby soap at first and am now using just plain ALL Clear and Free (my normal soap), so I assumed it was fine. I also use dryer balls and not dryer sheets, so there isn't anything there. So I picked up some Target brand baby soap and am trying that again and also doing a second rinse on all loads with vinegar. A waste of water, but we'll see if this helps. I would think the Clear and Free soap would be better, the baby soap actually has added fragrance! But anyhow. He smiles so much now, we just love it! He even smiles at his sisters!
We've been trying to work out our sleeping arrangements for the kids. Currently, Marryn has been alternating between the queen bed and her old toddler bed (we brought it up for her to use when we have guests). Reganne is still in the crib and Christian is in the cradle in our room. So we moved the toddler bed into Reganne's current room (next to the crib), but she wants nothing to do with it. She wants the "big bed." So, for the past couple nights Reganne has slept in the queen bed in Marryn's room and Marryn has slept in the toddler bed in Reganne's room. They eventually need to be in the same room, but first things first.... Naps are another story. Reganne won't stay in bed, so after a few hours...yes it was a couple hours yesterday...we end up putting her in the crib. I really want to get them twin bunk beds (seperate them into just two beds for now), but we have no budget for that right now, so what we have is going to have to work for now. But anyhow, the whole point of my story...
My babies and their plugs.
(Okay, so there was no point for the whole bed story...except that they're in the big bed.)
