Poor Avery

I told you a while back that Avery had some skin problems. We think it's exzema, but we are going to the dermatologist on Friday for a visit and the doctor wants us to stop treating her skin so he can see what it is and know the best way to treat it. She scratches her skin in her sleep and during the day, sometimes so bad it bleeds. It's mainly on her back and neck and shoulders, so where she can reach, it looks like a cat took to her and just scratched away on her skin.

A couple of weeks ago, Avery had a bad outbreak. We put lotion on her skin and she started screaming bloody murder and crying because it burned her skin so badly. We finally used some stuff that worked and had it 100% gone (a wash, lotion, and cream) and then, we had to stop using it for the dermatologist. Her skin broke out within a day and she started scratching and we decided we couldn't make her suffer for that long so we would wait until next Wednesday to stop using the stuff again. Well, we put lotion on her skin the other night and she screamed again. "Momma, momma" and she was shaking. I felt so helpless! Every time I would blow on her skin she would scream harder. Broke my heart.

Here is her left shoulder...


Here is her back...



Here is another picture of her back.




I hope he can give us some stuff to help. I think the stuff we were using was doing just fine but usually, that stuff doesn't work forever. Poor Avery.

It was a very good day.

I love it when God smiles upon us. I mean, He smiles upon us all the time. But sometimes, it's like sunshine, and Christmas morning, and rainbows, and babies, and awesomeness. On steroids. And I know that those times are not always permanent, so I learn to really wrap myself in His goodness, to take it all in, be happy, and just sit back and wait to see what He is going to do in my life.
We have been struggling so long. I knew it was only a matter of time before things would be OK again. Where we would feel a little stability. Where we would take all of the things we learned while struggling and apply then when times are good.
We have alot of great things going on in our lives right now. Some really great things. Some amazing, mindblowing, off the grid kind of great things. I wish I could share more, but for right now, let's just say that we are incredibly blessed with some great opportunities God is putting in our lives.
I leave you with a gorgeous picture of our biggest blessin…

What is Your Skin Care Regimen?

Since turning 34 this year, I've been really trying to make sure I am taking care of my skin. I have been using Cover Girl Liquid Powder for years, but it always seemed to break my neck out. And full disclosure, my face cleaning routine consisted of using Avery's baby wipes (which actually do remove eye makeup surprisingly well). So, needless to say, my skin didn't always look its best. So, I received some gift cards for my birthday and I decided to go ahead and spring for some better products. First thing I did was get something designed to clean my face. I ordered the Olay ProX Microdermabrasion System. This system came with the battery-operated scrubber with both a brush and foam pad, plus every day face wash and microdermabrasion wash to be used twice a week. I have really loved using this system. The beauty is that you can really use any face wash you'd like. I will probably buy a pore-reducing wash after the tube they sent me is empty. This system really exfolia…

Dancing With Dad

I have been working on a project these last couple of weeks for my previous company. Yesterday, I was working on my computer and heard roaring laughter coming from Avery's room. I walk in and found Jason and Avery dancing and singing away. 




 By sheer coincidence, this popped up on my Timehop today. Avery was only 1 in this picture.

Boy, are these kiddos lucky to have such a great dad! It makes me heart melt.
