Rash gone bad...

So over the past couple of days Lincoln has had a rash on his cheeks. It looked like it was getting better with a home remedy of corn starch, but just yesterday it didn't look pretty at all! It just kept oozing liquid. I made an appointment with the pediatrician for this morning and the whole time Lincoln was such a trooper and happy as can be. He seriously is an AWESOME baby boy! His poor cheeks looked so painful. :(
The pediatrician looked at it and checked everything saying that everything looks great he's in the 95th for weight and 90th for height. Then she went on to say that he has a 2nd degree infection on top of his eczema. Owie! So she prescribed and antibiotic and also gave me some cream samples to try on his skin after the antibiotic does it's job. So hopefully he gets better soon. Here are some pictures. They don't do his poor cheeks justice.
Taken the night before :(

Taken at the pediatrician's office. Looking happy.

Curious of what's going on. :)

Pain tolerance

So here I am one who had all natural birth with no pain killers, thinking I could handle pain. HA! Little did I know I was wrong haha. On Sunday I was shaving my legs for church and Stella was watching. I wasn't even shaving in a hurry when PSSht my razor snags my skin. I didn't even realize that I cut myself until I look down and see whiteness and blood. EWWWW! Stella was like "Uh oh, uh oh, owie" She gave me a hug and patted my leg and said "Kay, kay" I told her I'll be ok, but as I put the shower head to rinse off the blood, I couldn't help letting out a small yelp of pain. Then I got out dried my legs and put a bandaid on. Done. Today I remove the bandaid to see how it looks and it looks super red. Curtis is like "That looks nasty, maybe you should put some hydrogen peroxide on it." I was like "Does that hurt?" He said "It usually doesn't, but it sometimes does." Here I'm thinking "What kind of answer is that?!" So we busted out the hydrogen peroxide and I was getting ready to put it on a cotton ball and Curtis, with a face of "Come on, it's common sense," said "That's not how you do it." I said "Well how do you do it then?" He got a paper towel and draped my leg over his lap with the paper towel underneath to catch the falling liquid. I was like "Wait, wait, let me grab something. I can't do this Curtis. No, no don't put it on yet." The whole time I was expecting an excruciating sting, but it didn't even hurt hahahahah. I was embarrassed. Curtis to make things more funny was like "And you thought you had high pain tolerance Hah!" We both just sat there laughing at my silliness.

So I was really excited about using my 10% coupon from Joann's tomorrow, since they have a labor day sale going on. I have visited Joann's multiple times in my anticipation and even have gone to Michael's to compare prices. I even kept showing Curtis all the stuff I wanted to get, he didn't care much haha. Tonight I decided to look on their website and add up the things I wanted to get. I got up to $42.69 and then I figured "I'm only saving $4.27 LAME!" So I'm really not that excited now.

Harry Potter touches our hearts

I had a burning desire to watch Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, so I borrowed it from my parents. We watched it last night and Stella got way into it. She would be glued to it and add some commentary like "Whoa!," "Look, look" and during the part where Hermione is crying because Lavender Brown and Ron kiss after the quidditch match, she kept looking at me and and pointing to the tv saying "Sad sad". She had such a sad face that she seriously looked like she was on the verge of tears. It was such a sweet moment hehe. Quick update on Lincoln- he is GINORMOUS!! haha He has the chubbiest cheeks that you can't get enough of! Loves to jibber jabber all the time. His sister always wants to hold him and love up on him and especially when someone else is holding him. She's like "Holt Holt baby," "Peas, peas, "Mine," "Kinken," etc. She talks a ton! She says nonsense stuff, while adding a few actual words. She's actually pretty good at communicating though. Her new phrases are "Get it, get it," "Do it, Do it," and "Gen (again)." Lincoln also loves music like Stella. I got way into Horton Hears a Who and sang the line that Joe sings at the very end "I can't fight this feeling anymooooooooooore" and he just stared at me smiling and making "Aaaa, ooo" sounds like he was singing too :) Love my chunky boy.
