We have a diagnosis!

Seborrheic Dermatitis is what has Audrey all rashy and red-faced. It gets really bad when she rubs her face into someone's shoulder or whatever she's laying on. She gets these raised red bumps that are very hot to the touch and I just feel so bad for her! I took her to the pedi today and she said that 10% of babies get it, the cause is unknown, and it usually goes away by 4 months. There won't be any lasting effects (i.e. scars), so that's a relief. She suggested cortisone and an antibiotic ointment. Plus we're going to use corn starch to prevent itchiness. She has her 2 month pictures tomorrow so hopefully we can keep her face as clear as possible...hmmm...can they airbrush at a portrait studio? :)

C is for Cookie...

Chris does a fantastic Cookie Monster impression which I found out about one night as we were reading her a story told by CM. So when we saw the puppet at Target we had to pick him up!
