49 weeks

So this week, well actually today Caitlin is officially walking.  We have been working with her for a few weeks now, she would take one or two steps then fall down.  She can cruise along furniture like no ones business, but the walking alone she struggled with her balance.  Well today I bribed her with some goldfish crackers and she walked about 5 steps before falling.  I kept doing it over and over and she just kept coming.  When Jason got home I showed him and he was so pleased with his baby girl.  I knew she could walk we just needed to bribe her with the right thing!
This week she also had the worst diaper rash I have had with any of the kids.  She woke up at 5:30 which is so not normal, I let her cry for about 10 mins before deciding she wasn't going to settle back down.  I went to get her and I could smell the poop.  I went and gave her a bottle and when she was done with her bottle I changed her diaper.  She had been in that diarrhea poopy diaper for a while.  Poor thing screamed while I was cleaning her up, and her whole area was bright red all up her front and back.  I covered her in triple paste and then just cuddled her.  She wrapped her arms around me and would not let go.  I climbed back in my bed and we both fell asleep till Ashton woke at 7:30.  Every time I had to change her diaper she just screamed, I hated it I felt so bad.  She was super clingy all day and I could barely put her down.  I ended up trying three different diaper creams to finally give her some relief.  Lets just hope we don't have anymore like that again.
