Grab the hand sanitizer

...you'll need it around here: Lovie's got the worst case of diarrhea I've ever seen. : (
Today is day FIVE of it.
Went to the doc and she said to STOP any milk products and give her Pedialite and solids (crackers, rice, non dairy).
My poor baby's bottom. 
I can't even say how many times *I've* broken down in tears because of hers- during diaper changes only. Otherwise she's the happiest, friendliest baby in the world and I'm not just saying that; I have proof!! She met 15 new people on Saturday when we threw my dad a birthday party (77th!). Every single one of them marveled at a) her beauty (sooo sweet- she was compared to the likes of Halle Berry... I'll take it!!) and b) how good she was. I barely saw her the entire time and didn't hear her either.
Then today, after the doc visit, we stopped by my work so I could get some things done since I'll be out wiping someone's butt as gently as I can and caking on the A&D ointment, and every single person she encountered again marveled at a) her beauty and b) how great a baby she is.
And she is.
My Lovie.
My doll. 
arrow is point to her two little teethers that joined our household several weeks ago- finally- at 9m4d (I've been saying she's been teething since 4 months- oops!)
Thanks for stopping by- don't forget to wash your hands now so you don't get the runs, too!


  1. She is gorgeous and sweet! And I love to see those little teeth!!

  2. awww...poor thing! I hope her booty is better soon!

  3. Ahh, poor Lovie! And poor Lovie's bottom! She absolutely is a GORGEOUS babe. OK, off to wash my hands now... ;)

  4. Bless her little heart!!!!! Doc's recommendations helping?

    (She is INDEED a very very beautiful little baby!!!!)

  5. Hope that doll is feeling better!

    I tagged you for some quiz questions... :)

  6. She's absolutely gorgeous! I hope she gets better soon.

    Just thought I'd pass along a couple helpful tips that someone gave to me. If she has a really bad diaper rash you might try blow-drying her butt (on low/cool) during every diaper change. It dries up the rash and worked like a charm on my toddler when she had terrible diarrhea and a bad rash. Also some diaper rashes turn in to an external yeast infection. In that case antifungal cream really works well when regular diaper creams don't. Just thought I'd pass this along in case it helps. I was at my wits end a few months ago when my toddler was going through the same thing then someone gave me those tips and my daughters rash cleared right up.


speak your mind.
