The Dreaded Ex


We don't have to wait for you to get older to deal with the dread ex. Mommy and Grandma both have to deal with it everyday it was only a matter of time before it would strike you. I am talking about eczema. After hearing you couldn't have athlete's foot (the cream didn't work anyway) and treating you with powder (which didn't help either), I noticed your hands were staring to peel. Mommy's intuition stepped in and I took you to Dr. Saade this morning. You weighed in at 22lbs. 12 ounces and what do you know? You have joined me and Gram in the dreaded ex club. You specifically have dyshidrotic dermatitis. Amazingly, he prescribed a cream that I put over your feet and hands along with Aquaphor and within one application, it looks better! Yeah! You also have a little on your tummy I will start treating tomorrow. 
In other news, your nose is quite runny from that dang molar, your hair is getting longer by the minute, and I love you very much. That is all.
