December update

The last week has been so super busy, with many visits, social engagements, Christmas and now New Years!  Whew...the time went so quickly!  Finally, this morning I can check the blogs and see what has been happening over the past week. 
Cailyn is teething with fury, and thank god for Boiron Camilia!  Since she continues to rub her tongue on the top part of her mouth, we are pretty sure that is where the first tooth will bud.  And of course, intense teething brought on a mad case of cradle cap (YUCK!).  We happened to visit our naturopath yesterday who gave us some cream to try - one that will help manage any inflammation as well. 
We received many lovely photo Christmas cards from our surrogacy friends around the world and these will definitely go in Cailyn's 2011 memory box!! 
2011 was a wonderful year for us in the Olejarz household and we are so looking forward to 2012 with Cailyn!
Oh so pretty!
