Oh dear lord.......

We get up in the morning, I take Jake's nappy off and if it's not freezing I let him have a little nappy free time. Occasionally we get a little wee, sometimes a poo. This morning was a doozy........

And yes, that's our TV remote *vomit*. How do I clean that????? Must be bodily fuids day today, so far (and it's 7:50am) we;ve had one blood nose, three accidents and Jake's excellent efforts. It's going to be a looooooong day *sigh*.

Jake walking

so here is the video we got last night. It's actually the second time he did it, the first we didn't have the camera, lol. Sorry for it being sideways, I wasn't thinking when taking it. He's so quick I just wanted it on camera!


Today is the day

today is the day for updating my blog. I have been so slack and never actually get around to posting. Now Jake has started walking at 8 months and I need to get you all up to date! He just started to push a trolley along last night but I don't think it will be too long before he's walking alone. Maybe by Christmas? Anyway, stay tuned, I'm going to get off my butt and post piccies and videos.

So.....I am pleased to have a diagnoses of Jake's 'down-there' problem. And he's not allergic, YAY!

After having antibiotic cream and then oral antibiotics, nothing had changed. The Dr thought it was an infection. BUT after getting a second opinion from a male Dr (who I suspect was little more sypathetic, lol) it seems Jake has Phimoses....which means his foreskin is too tight, resulting in redness and infection :( Poor little man. So we have been referred to the Royal and are waiting on an appointment. Dr seems to think it is likely it will be recommended he is circumscised, which seems to make sense. I've heard of steroid creams but in a way I'd be glad to just get him done so it's not a problem anymore for sure. It will be so nice to not see him like that and to occasionally have to feel his foreskin off the nappy......OUCH!

So hooray for no allergies. Not looking forward to an op still but if it's for the best I'll have to get over it :) Better now than later right?
