Home Alone

Well, Tim's paternity leave is over!  We were so very lucky to have him home with for so long, but we may have been a bit spoiled!  I mean, how many Dads get to stay home until their little one is 3 weeks old?  Anyways, Tim went back to work yesterday, leaving a VERY scared new Mom-of-two at home.  Luckily, I found out about a class on Monday mornings for Bennet so we went there yesterday and signed him up.  He's the only boy in class but that doesn't seem to bother Bennet at all!!  I should tell you, it's a ballet class, but Tim prefers to refer to it as "rhythm and movement" class.  Either way, Bennet LOVES to dance and is absolutely thrilled with his new class.  I forgot to take the camera with me, but I certainly will next monday and will have to post some pictures.  He particularly loves sautees (jumping)!  

Poor baby Jude has an awful diaper rash (I suspect a yeast infection) and a terrible case of gas!  I'm taking him to the doctor tomorrow to check out his rash and I ordered an extra-strong diaper rash cream and mylicon drops.  Unfortunately, one of the cons to living here is that you can't always just run to the store and find what you need.  It's not too hard to find things online, and I've not come across too many things that I can't order.  But waiting for things to get here is a pain, especially when I know my baby is suffering!!  Hopefully the doctor can prescribe something for his tushy tomorrow and the gas relief drops should be here any day now!

Tomorrow is Bennet's last day of school before summer vacation starts!  We're planning to celebrate the beginning of summer with a whole weekend of events!  Saturday morning, we have Bennet's closing ceremonies for tee-ball.  I've heard that all the kids get trophies!  How stinking cute is that?  Later that night, we're going to a friend's house for dinner.  Their daughter, Chloe, is Bennet's age and he absolutely adores her!!  Then on Sunday, we're going to Safari Land.  It's a local zoo here where you get on a bus to go through and you can even feed lions and tigers from the bus!  (With tongs of course!)

Gabe had diaper rash problems when he was an infant. It was yeast rash (we also had thrush) and for the longest time all that worked was Lotrimin which I hated putting on his bottom but it was better than the rash. Then I (actually my mom) discovered Motherlove Diaper Rash and Thrush Cream. It worked just as good but without the nasty chemicals! It's pricey but totally worth it. I will have some here before this babe is born!
