Super Spy vs Mr. Eczema

Danger Boy's old nemesis, MR. ECZEMA has come back to continue his battle with Super Spy. Oh, how we hate Mr. Eczema! Super Spy is doing her part by completely ignoring him (ie not scratching or fiddling with what looks like an itchy rash).

Super Spy also luckily has her parent sidekicks who have done battle with this evil foe before. We have our weapons--Aquaphor, Eucerin, Free & Clear Detergent with White Vinegar, and Cetaphil cleanser. We're on to all his dirty tricks and we have beaten him back mostly into submission.

Tired Mom has also gone off all possible allergy foods from past baby experience (milk, soy, and peanuts).

Below are some pics of when it was bad (although it was worse on her head, neck, and ears, but we did not take pics of those).

In other news- Super Spy had her 1 month check up (at 5 weeks) and she is almost 12 lbs already! We have another "chunk o' baby" on our hands. She is starting to look like a "real baby" instead of a newborn already.

Bad Year For Cats

We lost another Super Cat. Nutmeg got hit by a car and was put in our yard. He appears to have been hit sometime last night or yesterday afternoon. Danger Boy is taking it hard and keeps crying his eyes out and saying he misses Nutmeg. He wrote Nutmeg a little note that we will put his grave when Paranoid Dad gets home from work (translation "bye bye nutmeg 'signed' vance mommy dad periwinkle).

Nursing Stories & Favorite Pics

Tired Mom has been very busy nursing a very hungry baby, who does not let Tired Mom get very much sleep, so the blog has been neglected.

When Kid Catastrophe was born, Danger Boy (at 2 years old) loved her lots. His only problem with her was when I nursed. One day while I was nursing, DB opens his mouth full of sharp toddler teeth and comes at me like a scene out of jaws. I think I screamed something like "AIIIIEEEEYEEEEEEE, NO! NURSING IS FOR BABIES!"

Then, when Super Spy was nursing a few weeks ago, Danger Boy (now 6 years old) once again inclines his head (though with his mouth closed, and no Jaws music playing in my head) towards my chest like he wants a try. I was much calmer about telling him that nursing was in fact for babies.

Then, Kid Catastrophe says, "I not eat from your chest, I eat from a PLATE!" (as if SS was practicing very bad etiquette by nursing instead of eating from a plate like all civilized folk).

Just for fun. Here's some of my favorite Super Spy pics so far!
