I created my own remedy out of Caroline's Butt Paste (I figured if it worked on diaper rash, it would work on armpit rash) and some baby powder, and that helped with the itching/burning and smelled pretty nice, too. But I still spent a lot of time whining to David, "My pitters itch and hurt and stink!"
The pits have since recovered, and I'm sticking with the overpriced Adidas deodorant that has to be special-ordered from Amazon since it's evidently not sold in stores. Because my armpits are totally high-maintenance.
2) Caroline had her first trip to Target today. David went with us (at my request) and I quickly realized that of the two of them, Caro is a far better shopping companion. She never asks how much things cost or whether we really "need" a particular item. And if she's tired, she just falls peacefully asleep. David, on the other hand, gets cranky at Target and has to be told to take a nap when we get home. Next time it will just be a girls' trip and I might even buy a new shirt or something.
3) My friend Jamie and I met up yesterday to go to a nursing moms' group together and then out to lunch. After lunch, she gave me an early birthday present, which included this book:

4) Speaking of lovely gifts, Caroline receive a mystery package in the mail the other day. It was from an Etsy shop called Trafalger Square, which is where I ordered this print for Eliza's nursery:
|A Jolly Read (available here)|
|bunny and duck available here|
|bunny catching falling stars available here|
I absolutely love them and can't wait to find a spot for them in Caro's nursery (we're setting it up next week!), but the mysterious part was that there as no note or receipt included in the package, so I don't know who sent them! I don't know if I should assume they were sent by the artist herself, or if they were a gift purchased by someone else. I'd love to know whom to thank for them. Whomever you are, THANK YOU! The prints are beautiful and they make me smile.
5) I have tired of daytime television. It's so inane. And the local news is SO depressing. I've started watching Veronica Mars again. Best show EVER. I'm watching Season 3 right now. I still have a mad crush on Logan Echolls (he's just so moody and intense and so cute!) and I still want to be just like Veronica. It's such a smart and interesting show. I can't believe it got canceled after three seasons. If you haven't watched it, do yourself a favor. It's available on Netflix, but totally worth the purchase on DVD.
