So yeah, Audra has a bad diaper rash at the moment, which we're throwing everything at that we can but nothing seems to be helping it at all. We'll be trying to leave her diaper off a lot this weekend to let it air out, but if it's still bad by Monday, we'll probably have to go to the doctor for it. She also is sick again, and so between being congested, her sore bum, and her upper tooth finally cutting through, her sleep is pretty terrible again. She woke up about every hour the last couple of nights again, and was awake for over an hour last night since she was coughing so badly. For this week's silver lining - although it seems like just a faint memory already - before she got sick she had an awesome run of maybe a week straight of sleeping a 3-hour stretch each night.
Audra went to the pediatrician last week to get a Hep B vaccine and the first of her two flu shots for the season. She only cried for a few seconds after her shots and barely slept at daycare that day, but still was very happy that evening and just had a little bit of trouble sleeping the second day. She did fight her naps all weekend, though, and it took multiple tries to get her down for each nap before she'd finally give in, and Ryan had to walk her for one of them.
This week Audra also got more talkative. I'm not sure if it's just coincidence that we picked a name that sounds like baby babbling or if Audra is already saying her name (probably the former ;) ), but Audra said "ah-da!" and many other things.
Audra is really interested in exploring our house, and is content to just head off to play in different rooms by herself or get into various things. Looking through the pictures from this week, I was struck by how many could be captioned "Audra getting into things", so here she is, getting into things :)
