Priceless Pictures

I took these pictures and didn't even realize that Crew and Indie matched! SO CUTE! Just a side note: I have to say now that we have found a solution for Crew's poor lip (he has eczema bad), there is NOTHING better than a wonderful doctor and NOTHING WORSE than a horrible one! We have tried literally everything on his skin to help it not break out during the winter months ( eczema gets way worse in the dry cold.. yeah why do we live in Utah again?). He broke out with this dryness on his lip about the end of December last year and it hasn't gone away. We went to a HORRIBLE dermatologist who basically said he had a "oral fixation" and the it was my fault cause I was not stopping him from touching his lip. IS HE SERIOUS? Does he realize that Crew is two? ALL two year olds drool, touch their face constantly, and most of all if something is itching THEY SCRATCH IT!! I felt so bad that there was nothing that we could do that he hadn't already done. When I say we did everything... literally we did everything we could think of! Well that is until my sweet friend, Ashlee, gave me her dermatologists number. NIGHT AND DAY I tell you! She was the sweetest person ever. She listened to ALL my questions ( and you know I had a million!) She never thought any question was dumb, unlike my other Dr. I was just pleasantly surprised by her bedside manner. By the end of our little visit I wanted to hug her! Really! I think I said "thank you" to her at least 30 times! She told me to give him a Clorox bath once to twice a week and gave me the most amazing lotion to use on his lip. When Nick and I left her office we looked and each other and could not believe this other DUMB Dr. didn't give us ANY of these simple solutions! Well let me tell you... over night his lip started looking better. It has been 3 days of putting the creme on morning and night, and it is ALMOST COMPLETELY GONE! no joke! I want to cry! I have my little boy back! Not that he was ever gone but he was always scratching at his lip and now he has not even touched it once! Morale of this story is: GOOD DOCTORS are few and far in between. I am just glad I have a fabulous OB-GYN, pediatrician, and now dermatologist. Now I need a good dentist and family doctor. ANY suggestions? Thank you Ash for your inspired referral! These pictures are from today.... look at the difference in under a week? AMAZING!! I can't wait to see what 5 more days make it look like! Hope it's completely gone so I can get his 2 year pictures done!!!

Where to sleep?!?

Crew is notorious for coming out of his room when it is time to go to sleep. i find him in random spots ALL THE TIME! Can you find him in the last picture?? He is so funny. He can not handle missing out on any of the fun! I just love him, even if he is stubborn little one! Like father like son!! Gotta love a family filled with stubborn people!!

Yes he is asleep on the stairs! I had to move him this time cause he was kneeling and it looked so uncomfortable!!!

Can't leave out "baby sis". She is such a good baby! How can you not just love that face?? Really? Don't you just want to eat those cheeks! LOVE HER!

Potty Training Update

Update: We have #1 down!!!! No accidents in nearly two weeks!! Now if we could only go #2 on the potty!?!?! He has not even gone ONCE in the potty. Will he ever get this one down? I am over cleaning out "you-know-what" out of his underwear!! SO GROSS!!! Please magic potty fairies come help my little boy go #2 on the toilet!!!

Glitter Cups

A few weeks go I went with one of my best friends, Staci, to Dear Lizzie for a night of glittering fun! We signed up to do these fabulous glitter cups. They are so girlie and so much fun to have a drink in. I used mine while on a girls trip to Vegas. I am planning on making many more. So maybe you will be the next owner of one of these beauties for a birthday present, baby shower gift, or just for fun!! I love them!!
