So, I know my posts have been scarce lately, but I promise you I have a really good excuse this time. You see, I’m an auntie now, and I’ve been sucked back into newborn hell with my sister. Yes, it’s a glorious time, don’t get me wrong, but just being with my new nephew for a few days has worn me out. So, my evenings are spent resting in the comfort of my old lady chair while wearing my old lady pajamas and watching my old lady TV shows. Since my birthday is Friday, I will technically be an old lady, so now is the time to cash in on that title and really milk it for what it's worth.
I just wanted to give you a little update on where things stand. I promise I haven’t abandoned you or dumped you or tossed you aside for richer, more famous blog readers - I’m just on a mini-vacation until things slow down a bit. Then I’ll post so much that you’ll be sick of me again. What a vicious cycle.
An update to the PSA about Pampers causing chemical burns: Fortunately, since my sister caught it in time, Jackson’s rash/burn has all but disappeared. It’s still a little red and tender, but a combination of Eucerin Gel mixed with hydrocortisone cream and lots of naked time, and, oh, NEW DIAPERS, has really made a huge difference. He’s basically fully healed now. My sister and I truly appreciate all of the kind comments that were left in response to that post. We appreciate that each of you are spreading the word about these diapers (and will hopefully continue to do so).
Since you’ve only seen the rashy part of my precious nephew, here’s a sneak peak at his newborn shots. I’ll be posting more about this later (as well as my sister’s labor story – I got a front row seat, and it was simply amazing). Tons of pictures and great stories to follow. Stay tuned!
Happy Earth Day
