Her 2nd nap was at the same time as her brother's. Even better.
I also got to shower too! Feat number 3.
The hair's been starting to majorly fall out but that didn't stop me from feeling like it was a good morning. :)
I took Ellie to the doc for ther 3 month appointment. Time flies.
Ellie's skin's extremely dry in patches. She has 2 big patches on the lower part of each cheek that rub against her clothes so it gets raw. It's been a healing cycle...dry & flaky skin, rub, raw skin, heal...dry, rub, raw, heal...erf. Her face overall is less dry but the areas that are dry are REALLY dry and it's now spreading to her arms and legs. Darn ezcema! Why do you have to be genetic!!
Anyhoo, the doc thought it was bad enough to check to make sure her skin's not reacting from milk allergies. When she was a few weeks old, I had a feeling she might be. So the doc gave me 2 prescription meds. One antibiotic cream to heal the raw skin and the other, 2.5% hydrocortizone cream for overall healing of the dryness. Both of which she prescribed to Maxx when he was about Ellie's age. Again, darn genetics! She also told me to change her formula to Similac alimentum. I actually thought it was adamantium and later realized that's what Wolverine's skeleton is made of. ha! She said it doesn't taste very good so I was nervous Ellie wouldn't drink it but after a couple meals, she's gulping it down fine. I'm not too worried because I don't think her allergies are from milk or if they are, they aren't too severe that she isn't in the process of outgrowing it already. Optimism is good.
Over the last few weeks, there have been a bunch of firsts and funnies. Here are some I was able to capture.
First SNOWBALL - Maxx seems to be sick every time it snows so it had to be indoors. He called it "eye-sh" after a few minutes because it lost its white color and melted so quickly.
First ICE CREAM CONE - Don't you love what hats do to hair?
FIRST time EATING RICE on his own with a SPOON (aka hands). Thankfully this is just rice and not a boogie. He'd have suffocated. And this time, it's not hat hair. It's umma's bad hair cutting skills.
Look CAREFULLY. No, not the soggy diaper. It's what Maxx likes to do with umma's "weeng". I don't think appa liked it too much. :)
How appa likes to position Princess Ellie. She got so big but still makes our sofa look huge.
By the way, I need to do some serious tummy time with her. I was so good about it with Maxx. Poor Ellie. At this rate, she'll be 2 before she can crawl! Bad umma!
FIRST "REAL" PHONE CALL
sem-che = samchon, uncle in korean
comp! = come!
nite nite = sleeping
Maxx opened my phone and said "sem-che, comp!". It was 8 in the morning so I told him that samchon's still sleeping. Hence, the "nite nite".

FIRST time at the new 5 GUYS by the new Walmart. Appas, it's nothing personal.

I went with my sister, 2 mommy friends, their kids, and one of the hubbies came to meet us after work. L's mom pointed out that we probably looked like a guy and is 4 wives & 3 kids. hahaah~!
Moms, take your kids. They just LOVE the cajun fries, music and (I dunno why but) drinking cups with straws. The kiddies were boppin' to the music the entire time. They will have a blast while you enjoy a yummy hot burger with everything on it. Oh and of course don't forget to give them some real food too. :)
Oh and I know I mentioned it before but I L-O-V-E Walmart. I'm now going there regularly to get some of the basics for my house. Maxx's organic half gallon milk is $3.50. 50 cents cheaper than shoprite or hmart. Gunn has Activia every morning so I make sure to have that stocked up. The 8-pack is $3.98 at Walmart and shoprite's got it regularly for $5.98! That's $2!! Hell-ooo! And they're hardly EVER on sale. Eggs are way cheap too but I've never heard of the brand so I'm wondering if I should keep getting it there. I figure at least the brand name items are fine. :D
Okay, last but not least, what Maxx says EVERY night...
