Corrin {Six Months Old}

At six months old, Corrin...
... weighs 16 pounds, 8 ounces, and is 25.85 inches long.  Her head circumference is 16.5 inches.

... wears size 2 diapers, and 3-6 months or mostly 6 months clothes.

... is still breastfed, but also gets formula.  She drinks Similac Sensitive. UPDATE: The doctor changed her formula to Similac Alimentum. We think she may have a dairy allergy that is contributing to her eczema.  Hopefully this change will help clear up the eczema.

... has really bad eczema.  Her skin is really dry, and is cracking.  She scratches herself constantly.  She rubs her arms against you if you are holding her.  She wiggle when we lay her on her back as a way of scratching. She pulls at her skin.  It is horrible.  I feel so bad for her.  We have tried all sorts of creams.  Everything works for a little while, and then the eczema comes back worse than before.  I am trying to avoid the prescription creams because they have steroids.

... eats a whole container of jar food in each sitting, and is usually fussing because she wants more when she's done.  My girl likes to eat.

... is sitting up much better now.  She's still a little wobbly, but for the most part she stays sitting.

... refuses to sleep in her own bed through the night. 

... is still a mama's girl. I'm waiting for that to change.

... still loves her brother to pieces.  I think she thinks he hung the moon and the sun.

... is called Rin, Rinny, Rinna, Fat Girl, and Sissy.

She was not feeling laying flat for these pictures.
