Chubby Cheeks


I managed to head off the hairdresser today. I was desperately in need to a new do. As for the redhead in the family, Sheena is starting to get craddle cap again. Just a small thick patch of it, but I am theorising that its because she has completely gone off her solids for the moment. She had it at 5 months something shocking, but it cleared up as soon as I started her on solids.

Sheena is chubbing up nicely. Her meds are giving her a moon face. She already had a beautiful round face, so now it is just a lot rounder...

I spoke to my favorite Neuro of 'Team Sheena' about her blood pressure being up. At least he gave me a full explanation of what it meant, so I am more comfortable that we are not being remiss in doing nothing about it for now. He said that it is quite high, but you would be a lot more concerned if the lower number was significantly elevated. They'll do it again tomorrow.

Thanks for the nice comment in Tristans first day of school pic. Your sweet girl sure has some chubby cheeks so adorable!! I'm glad you were able to get things clarified with the neuro ignorance surley breeds fear and it is important to understand what is going on. Glad to hear your thinking about yourself and going for haircuts. :)
