Chicks & Chilluns
We delighted our little Katie-girl last week by bringing home 16 little Rhode Island Red chicks!
(fresh eggs someday soon!)
She calls them “her birdies,” or the “baby chickens” and always wants to hold them and feed them and get them more water.
“Birdies don’t feel good! Needs food in her tummies!”
I wish I could spell the way she says “birdies.”
In other news, THIS one is now 7 months old!
On the day she turned 7 months, she finally officially sat up on her own!
(she could have a lot sooner if she’d just quit trying to stand up instead!)
Victoria sure is a fun little character! I love watching her personality blossom…she’s an intense one!
Her preferred method of communication is shrieking.
Happy or angry. It requires high-pitched vocalization.
Katie likes to respond,
My poor little pumpkin has eczema on her arms.
It used to be a lot worse, but I still have to keep her in long sleeves all the time or she scratches at it until it’s bleeding and oozing. (Yuck and ouch!)
Anyone have some good tips for fighting eczema? I recently heard of using hazelwood necklaces, (kind of like amber necklaces for teething.)
Have any of you used or had success with those for eczema?
