Update on the sleeping arrangements:

Basically, it still sucks! BAD! Bailey has a horrible diaper rash and I have NO idea why or how she got it. Ok, I know babies get diaper rash. I'm not dumb. But, this is very strange. Last night she fell asleep beside me on the couch. I kept thinking she smelled like vomit. I didn't feel any vomit or see any on her but her jammies smelled bad like puke! So, when she woke up I grabbed another pair of pajamas for her, a new diaper, and some lotion. It WASN'T her pajamas that smelled. It was her (sorry for the TMI) poop. It was really acidic smelling and her bottom was BRIGHT red and she was making this noise that Zach and I always associate with pain for her. She winces and makes this awful noise when it hurts. So, I lathered her in desitin and nixed the bath b/c I didn't want her sitting in warm water on her already sore bottom. I finally got her lotioned and changed and we watched about an hour of TV and went to bed. She is REALLY congested too (probably b/c yesterday I started to get a sore throat and I think we both have it). So, we let her sleep with us again. I felt bad that she didn't feel well and I didn't want her to have to cry it out last night. But, we were up ALMOST all night! She kept waking up, crying, screaming... I don't know if she's hurt or spoiled...
And, please say a little prayer for her. She has her 15 month check-up today and she has to get shots :(

AND, thank you to Ashley for nominating me for the "Sisterhood" award :) I can't post it at work b/c the picture won't come up but will get on it later :)

Poor baby.... I hope she feels better soon so you can get back to normal life. Now I feel bad about the award. I thought it was for women going through procedures trying to get pregnant. :( I'm sorry Mel.

Aw..bless her heart. She had diarhea...that'll tear their bottoms up quick. I've gone through it with all of mine. It is not fun. Your gonna have a rough time for a few days until it's gone too. Diaper changes are the worst. Keep her little bottome covered up in desitin. I hope she feels better soon!!

I hope she feels better soon.
