Turning the corner....

We've had 3 good days in a row. I think the tantrums are done! Praise God!

We have a happy,playful baby. Christian is interacting with Daddy again and discovering how much fun he is. They both giggled for the longest time last night. He is also much less clingy and prefers to play on his own rather than have me hold him all the time.

On Monday and Tuesday we had some medical testing done and Christian tolerated it quite well. His ultrasound revealed that all of his internal organs are normal. We are waiting for the final results on the blood work, but he seems to be a healthy boy. He is even less and less itchy, which is making bedtime better. He was scratching himself to sleep. I think it was a combination of his rash and self-soothing behavior. We are hoping that his skin condition is due to poor nutrition/water in China and it will clear up in time.

Jacob is also enjoying playing with his little brother.

Chloe had aweful skin when we picked her up in China. Her head was full of sores and she had rashes all over her body. She would scratch constantly, and she looked miserable. Turned out she had really bad exzema. It took about 4 months to clear up completely with the help of a great dermatologist. We use only Aveno products on her skin because she is very sensitive and slather her up with lotion after every bath. Now she doesn't itch, and she is a lot happier.
