Pigtails

This little girl is growing by leaps and bounds. Not so much in the weight category. She remains my little peanut. But she has fully mastered rolling, beginning to sit and continues to strengthen her "push up on all fours throw herself forward" move. Not quite crawling but on her way. She is such a joy. I am enjoying every last minute. Poor girl had a hard month. We began rice cereal and after a day or two she developed a rash. I didn't think much of it. I stopped the cereal as I wasn't sure if it was that or the antibiotic she was on for her ear infection. After it cleared I started again. On the second day a small rash came back and then I gave her a full feeding on the third and she awoke a couple hours after I put her to bed completely covered in throw up. It was so sad and scary. I gave her a bath and when I got her out she began throwing up again :( This began another cold virus and many sleepless nights. After fighting off the cold I thought I'd give a different cereal a try. Maybe rice just wasn't for her. I tried oats and sure enough a couple hours after bedtime I woke up to her crying and covered in throw up. Needless to say I am waiting for her six month appointment before I try anything else. We will see. This is a first for a daukas baby.

Aunt Danae suggested today that I throw her hair in pigtails! Good call Auntie. I think it helps control the craziness. It also makes her look older which I'm not sure I'm ready for.

Wow, she looks older than Sophia with all that hair. Sophia's still a baldy, although it's starting to come in.
