Our Christmas past!
Here is AnnaLeisa with her cousins Brett and Derek (Colin's brothers). She was loved up and loved up! So wonderful to see her joy!
And the family photos is the first of all of us together! What a year this has been dear daughter!
Our Christmas was somewhat tainted but trips to the doctor, the Children's emergency room and finally an emergency dermatologist apt here in Nova Scotia. AnnaLeisa has developed a rash that became progressively worse to the point where she would scream and dig and her mom and her would both be crying in the night. The GP recommended a scabies treatment that would supposedly make the itch worse. Well it did and in the night Grandma and I took her to emerg for relief. At this point they said it was not scabies and made a referral to a derm. specialist. Who then said that she could not say it was not scabies.... so a retreatment. And creams and creams... for the dermatitis that could have been caused by too many changes..... internally and externally the weather has seen dramatic shifts.
So the long and short of it is that AnnaLeisa is now back to sleeping on Moma's chest as that is when she settles and has relief. Full circle and into co-sleeping again.
She has been brilliant in all of this! And we are more bonded than ever. So hopefully our return to Edmonton on the 11th will be less dramatic in terms of adjustment.
Great photos eh?!
