Great news! Cradle cap is GONE!!! Thanks to Kim for recommending Mustela foaming shampoo. This stuff works amazingly well! It was a challenge to find it and not cheap, but once I got my hands on it we were ready to wash that cradle cap away. It took two shampoos to really see a change and by the third shampoo it is gone! No more picking waxy residue off her head, YAY!! Thanks Kim for sharing this with me!!! I also bought the matching baby lotion, but it seems to cause a slight rash on Cailyn, but fortunately, I love it and it is not wasted money.
Cailyn is doing really well, not much else to share. We are blessed having her in our life, that's for sure! I cannot wait for the warmer weather to get out and about alot more.
We managed to purchase the next car seat, and got the one I really wanted. We opted for the Britax Marathon which tends to be very expensive here in Canada. It was on sale on the weekend, and we had to go to two Babies R Us locations to finally get it. The savings of $100.00 was worth the drive. Now we just need to get it installed professionally and she will be set. She has about a month before she will transition into it so not a huge rush.
In a pinch we bought a jar of Gerber Sweet Potatoes and O M G did it smell bad!! Why, why does it smell so bad? I make sweet potatoes for Cailyn at home and they do not smell bad like the jarred ones!! I will continue to make her food knowing how badly the jarred one smelled. I am fortunate to have the ability and time to do this!
This week on TheNextFamily.com I write about the MHA process and visiting Pahar Ganj market area. If you wish to have a read, here is the link: http://thenextfamily.com/topics/family/surrogacy-family/kerrie-olejarz/
Since I started sharing our story on the Next Family, many of us have gotten to know Madge (Madgew). Madge is the marketing guru for the website and probably one of the nicest women I have encountered in my life. Madge has been a huge supporter of ours (and many of you as well) and we love her for her friendship. She the coolest 60 something woman who can use the "f" word appropriately - like when discussing the latest antics of Rush Limbaugh! Madge will be on a North American tour in May and one of her stops is Toronto!! We are stoked to meet her in person and spend time with her - hoping the weather is great for her visit!
Here are a few pics from the week:
