Who's in Charge?

It certainly isn't Charles! Sorry, I've been watching that new Scott Baio show and couldn't resist the Charles In Charge reference there. Anyway, we've come to realize, that this little adorable princess is in reality the ruler of this kingdom. This princess is not afraid to let you know when she wants something, when she's mad, when your not doing the right thing or when you are just too freakin' slow! This little princess cries jump and we ask (with a smile on our face) how high!

I had to get a photo of her letting us know she was mad. We had put her in her crib and she was contently playing for a little while, just watching the mobile and playing with her little Winne the Pooh musical nightlight. When she decided it was time to come out, this is the face I got.

Princess J is doing really well. I can't believe how fast she is growing and how quickly she's mastering new things. The thing she's really working on right now is trying to sit up and becoming mobile. This makes sense, since from the look on her face in this photo our efforts to move her where she wants to be is not quite fast enough for her!

In this photo, you can still see remanents of the rash on her cheeks. It appears that she is allergic to not only the standard formula, but also to the Soy formula. So for now, we are on this super expensive special formula. She is worth every penny though. This little heat wave we've got going on isn't helping it heal any faster, but it is much better than it was just a couple of days ago. The worst part though, is that we've had to keep little baby mittens on her to keep her from scratching. Those little nails are sharp no matter how often we cut them, and she comes out looking like she was in a cat fight! That poor beautiful baby skin!

Like I said before, I can't believe how fast she is growing, I already miss my itty bitty baby! She is just beautiful and I can't get enough of her! So, to answer the question, Princess J is in charge around her for now.....and it's fine with me!

She's still adorable even when she's mad! :)

Poor baby allergic to the formulas. :( Sucks that they can't just tell us what they want, huh?

Try filing her nails instead of cutting them. It takes longer, but we STILL haven't cut Jonah's nails yet - we just file them down once a week. It leaves them less sharp. :)
