Caped Crusader!

She looks like Mother Theresa here!

Emmy is such a joy! She has been so much fun lately, I am loving being a mom! These pics were after her bath one day last week.

Poor girl, though, she has had dia (short for a longer, not very fun word. This is what we call it in our house :) ) since Thursday last week. And due to this she has had the WORST bum burn I have ever seen. There were open sores on her bum and she would scream every time we changed her diaper. The dr prescribed Pink Swizzle for her on Friday but by Monday it wasn't any better. I couldn't get into the dr on Monday so we went on Tuesday. The dia was causing the bad bum burn (I knew that, but the dr confirmed it). We had to put her on an all liquid diet (Pedialyte and Soy formula) for 2 days. Now she has to be on the BRATY diet for 3-5 days to try and get her regular again. If that doesn't work, they will have to take a stool sample. So we're hoping it will work! Poor baby, I feel so bad for her. Her bum is getting better, but it was pretty bad. She hasn't had a fever or any other symptoms of anything besides a loss of appetite so what she has is a mystery. Sorry if this is too much info for any of you, but I had to share my stresses with you!

On a lighter note, I took this hillarious pic of Binga with her two cousins, Dylan and Ella. They were watching Elf and it was a Kodak moment!

I am so sorry about little Emmy. That sounds just like what we've been through Ruby with. Her bum was the same way and we had to do that diet as well. So not fun. Hopefully she gets better soon. I totally know how you feel and Ruby knows how Emmy feels, sorry to say, but it lasts awhile.

Sorry you had such a rough time!! Hope everything is better, and that it's working out well with your parents.
