Say cheeeeeeeeese!


Emma has started doing this thing, this look, whenever I pull out my camera. It is sweet and silly and cheesy! She has done it the past two days. It is like she tilts her head and leans out towards me with a goofy look on her face. I have snapped her doing this three times. I will upload the pictures tonight when I get home from work. Here's hoping that she will be ready for Portrait Innovations on Sunday!

California Baby!

I must blog about their products for a few minutes. Emma has "winter skin" which is pretty much like ezcema but her doctor said it isn't actual ezcema.

This is an extreme close-up of my adorable Emma Cakes on Christmas morning for a reference. My poor baby's skin!

We wash all of our clothes in Tide Free and use Publix brand of the Bounce Free dryer sheets. We also wash her in Aveeno Creamy Body Wash and wash her hair with the Aveeno Head to Toe stuff every other evening. We slather her in Aveeno Soothing Cream after her bath and each morning. I have seen the California Baby products at Target and Publix but they are pricier than the Aveeno. She has rough, red patches on her chin, right cheek, left shoulder and her lower back. We were picking up some groceries at Publix the other night so I splurged on the California Baby Calendula Cream. It was $11.49 for a SMALL jar but I have used Kiehl's Calendula face wash before and it really seemed to help. We have been rubbing it on her face for two days now, about three times a day, and it is looking so much better!

Side note: It was great timing to try since we had an appointment at Portrait Innovations this afternoon to get Emma's 18 month portraits. She was not having any part of that though so after about 20 minutes of trying to get her to sit, they rescheduled us for next Sunday. Hopefully by then her face will be perfect again!

I keep trying to figure out if something she is eating is triggering this redness but she eats a lot of the same stuff she always has. This morning she had the white goldfish and apple juice and her chin became very raw again so we are going to go back to the regular goldfish. Anyways...I'm sorry to ramble...I just wanted to say that I love California Baby and I want to try their baby wash too!
