Cincy so far...

So far things have been just a "wee" bit challenging, but Sophie is one tough cookie! Our decision to stay at the RMH has worked out great! We are right across the street from the hospital and can shoot right over in the morning for Soph's xray...which she has daily! A med that we tried caused the worst blisters on her bottom that I have ever seen. I felt so awful. One of the moms here at RMH told me to put some milk of magnesia on it and then wrote down a name of some cream to put on it. It really worked! Sophie is doing much better this morning!

Yesterday we went to the Cincy Zoo. Sophie was able to feed a giraffe a cracker! Kind of cool. We might head back there today depending on the weather. We have gone to the kids museum a couple to times too. I have started carrying Sophie is a "hot sling" and she is loving it! It is especially helpful when we go to the hospital and she is feeling nervous. She sits right on my hip and snuggles right in:) I don't thing that the sling is the way to go if you will be carrying a 30 lb toddler for an extended amount of time, for that I would definitely recommend the ergo. The good thing about the sling is that it is easy to use and not bulky.

I am going to try to upload some pics today. I keep getting kicked off the Internet before my pics have a chance to load.

Talk to you soon!

An ergo works for a 30 pound toddler?? GOOD TO KNOW!! I still can't figure out how to work mine though.. it was passed on to me!

Glad things are going well and the med suggestion worked out!

Ouch, ouch, ouch! I'm so sorry to hear about those blisters. :0(

glad to hear the RMH is working out well and that you had fun at the zoo. I've never been to that zoo before but I've heard it's amazing. :0)

More prayers coming for a successful week.
