Tiny Talk Tuesday and a Pip Update

Posted on Updated on

We were enjoying a pleasant family dinner with our normal entertainment (Belle). She was sharing with us what she was eating:

Belle: What’s this?

Mommy: You know what that is. What is it?

Belle: Carecut (carrot)

Mommy: Yep!

Belle: What’s this?

Mommy: You know what that is. What is it?

Belle: Broci (broccoli)

Mommy: Yep!

Belle: What’s this?

Mommy: You know what that is. What is it?

Belle: Lalaflower (cauliflower)

Mommy: Yep!

Belle: What’s this?

Mommy: That’s pork.

Daddy: It’s pig.

Mommy: Don’t say that. (Worried that she would be traumatized to realize we were eating piggies!)

Belle: MMMMMMMM, PIG! (as she stuffs a handful in her mouth)

Mommy and Daddy: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

After re-reading my post about Pip’s 5th month I realized I left out a few things and there’s also been some new developments regarding his skin. Ok, maybe “developments” is too big of a word here but we’ll go with it.

In the 5 month post I mentioned that the gross formula wasn’t really making a huge difference and so we were going to go back to regular formula. Well I was wrong.

I have an issue with this little thing called impatience.

I guess it was making a difference and I’m not sure why I didn’t notice but when we switched back to normal formal, oh my word, he got the rash/eczema back all over his body and it was alot worse. So we’re back to the icky stuff and after two days I’ve noticed it’s improved alot. There are a few barely pink spots but most everything now is just dry skin. We’ve also been doing the bath at least once a day, sometimes with baby oil, and then creme (which I can’t remember the name now) 2-3 times a day. And when I say creme I mean lots of it!

I talked to the doctor last week and we decided to stay on just formula through yesterday.  Yesterday we started oatmeal cereal since the rice cereal made him break out the first time. And so far he’s been doing great. So now we just go from there. If it doesn’t get worse we’ll introduce new foods every 4-5 days.

Considering how quickly he broke out after I went back to normal formula I’m pretty he is allergic to something in there. I guess the gross formula has a little bit of that but the proteins are smaller so break down easier. Or something like that.

And yes I do remind myself that if I would have stuck it out breastfeeding we’d probably not be in this situation. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

Anyway some other things about Pip at 5 months I forgot to share:

-He’s a major blanket baby. He loves to hold a blanket and suck on a blanket and hug a blanket and chew on a blanket. Well actually any type of cloth. It doesn’t have to be a blanket. A shirt. A towel. A sock. You name it. This is very different from Belle. I don’t remember her ever doing this. It’s so interesting to see how their personalities are so similar in some ways and so different in others.

-Pip’s going blond. He’s lost almost all of his original hair. Has a really long chunk of it in the front. But all the fuzz that’s coming back in is blonde.  And it was at this point in the post I was going to share a picture of me and Hubby when we were babies so you could see what blondies we were. But that would require scanning pictures. And me getting up off the couch. Um, sorry, not gonna happen tonight.

-I already talked about how he likes to smile and laugh at Belle. But he also loves to just watch her. Back and forth, back and forth. He’ll just sit there and watch everything she does. And once in awhile something she’ll do will be funny (to Pip anyway) and he’ll laugh out loud. The other day at Grandma Barb’s they were playing together for about 30 minutes. I think this was the first time for that. Belle would give Pip all the toys and then one by one she’d take them away.

Typical girl, huh.

I think that’s it. I need to get back to the family fun. Hubby, Pip and Belle are watching videos on You Tube. Over and over and over. We’ve created a monster in Belle. If we stop she starts crying and keeps saying “idio, idio, idio”!

    That is so funny – she sure seemed unphased by eating “pig”.
