The Birthday Girl

Yesterday my super sweet Leah turned 4. There's really no other words to describe her! She's just a sweetie, through and through!
 I wish you all the best, my lovely Leah!

Happy 4th Birthday!

The Blessing Of Hair

4 of my babies were born with heads of full hair. One, a boy, was a blondie which required a buzz cut at 4 months of age. My other three hairy babies were all girls and blessed with dark curls. Beautiful, right?

Unfortunately though, a side effect of thick, long hair is cradle cap.

 Into the tub, Annie! 

With my previous babies, I tried some different cradle cap remedies. The worst? Olive oil! Sure, it takes care of the cradle cap, but it took weeks to get it back out of her curls.
 So this time, my favorite remedy is baking soda. You mix up a thick paste and scrub their little head with it. Let it dry for awhile, comb their little heads, and then wash it out!
 Anna doesn't mind this too much as long as she has a washcloth to chew on!
 And after? A nice, clean baby to snuggle in her hooded towel. 
 So now my baby girly is mostly cradle cap free (it takes a few times!), 
 and ready to be on the move again!

Beware Of Corn Dogs!

To date, they've claimed two teeth in our house. My older kids, who don't like corn dogs anyway, said they always knew they were evil.

I think Abby looks totally adorable with her toothless grin!

3/4 Of A Year

Anna is 9 months old today!
 She is making messes and exploring toys.
 Her happy spirit is shining through.
 Her favorite pastime? Picking up stuff off the floor, (see it in her pincer grasp?)
 and eating it! ewwww......
 She's everywhere and into everything and finally has a bit of chunk on those thighs!
 I see determination in that personality! I love that...
 and how I love her!
