I had to go back to the doctor yesterday because Mommy and Daddy thought my cradle cap was a bit much. Cradle cap is really common, and not something that you have to go to the doctor for usually, but Daddy says I am an overachiever. So I took regular cradle cap, and with my sensitive skin made it a really nasty case. So nasty I itched it, and since I am still learning how to use my hands I itched it a little rough. This left me with a few little scratches on my head, and open cuts can easily become infected ... poof, I have Impetigo! It got nasty enough that Mom called and insisted that my "cradle cap" needed to be looked at by a doctor.
Sigh, so we had to go back to the doctor. You can see some of the yellow funkiness on top of my head in the picture. We aren't sure if its a staph or strep infection -- really who cares, the medicine is making it go away!
I got some medicine for the infection, which I have only had to use twice so far and it already looks about a million times better, but they had to weigh me again. Seriously, I think I should be allowed to stay dressed for that! But I weighed a whooping 14.6 lbs, which means I have gained an entire pound in 3 weeks! That is amazing, even the doctor said so!
While we were there she and Mommy talked a bit about my gagging and choking, which has not gotten any better. I decided to help out a bit and had an episode right then and there. The doctor got to see it, and she told Mom to start giving me a medicine twice a day to help lessen my reflux. I may have super bad reflux, I may have trachea issues, I may have both, but all of the above are treated with this medicine. I haven't noticed a difference in taking it yet, but I have only had two doses, so we will see how it works. It tastes pretty good, so I won't complain about it!
Lastly, I wanted to show you this picture of me with my Froggy. Daddy bought me Froggy a while ago, but now that I am learning how to use my hands I like to play with him a bit more. Sometimes the Frog really makes me mad, and I try to get him. But, since I am not so good with hand eye coordination as of yet I really haven't been successful with this. So I usually wind up just swinging away and getting mad, it makes Mommy giggle so she took a picture of me. I think I look intense, she says I am cute. Whatever, I say to-may-toe you say tom-mah-toe!

My last "age" post was for seven weeks old. Well I have matured quite a bit, above you can see me at 8 weeks. I was tired because my parents bought me a new toy! They actually went to the store a couple of times to make sure they picked the right one out for me, its a baby mobile. I love watching things move so they spent a little extra and got the Cadillac version that had spinning parts, dangling parts AND even projected a picture, all while playing music, making nature noises, or a heartbeat sound. However, turns out they could have bought the cheap one because I don't give a hoot about all of that, as you can see below I just love the motor where the sound comes out!Seriously, I love that thing! Mommy rolls her eyes and says someday she expects to find me clinging to the side of the crib with a screwdriver trying to get inside of it to see how it works. Daddy just smiles and plans to by me a set of 'em when Mom ain't lookin'! I just laugh because they are both silly enough to think I haven't already tried it.
Moving on, I also turned 9 weeks old, and again I was pretty tired.
Do you have any idea how much growing do each day? You'd be poopered out too! But to bring us up to date ...
That one is probably my best yet. Mommy acted totally ridiculous, so I had to laugh at her and she caught me smiling. Aren't my eyes amazing? (I know, I know, I am so humble!) You can also see that I am getting much bigger. I have a spare chin now!
All it involved was a few x-rays the nurse said, no biggie, but I wouldn't hold still for one of the pictures (I know, big surprise, a baby not wanting to hold perfectly still). So I had to yell at some people, which I suppose wasn't nice but they made me put my arms up really high and I didn't know this before, but I do now, I hate putting my arms up over my head. But they did get the pictures and we will hear from the doctor later on if they see anything or if we haveto do more pictures.
Anyway, check out the awesome x-ray machine:
I had to admit it was cool to look at but my attention span is too short to care for more than like 10 seconds. Micah thought it was awesome though.

In the beginning of time, back about two months ago now, I refused to use any pacifier/Plug other than Soothies. You have seen pictures of me with my fave plugs before if you have read this blog for a while. However, recently I branched out.
Mommy and Daddy say that this means I am getting older. Funny how that makes them so happy and a little sad at the same time!
