next year’s costume?

8 Nov

If she’s still rocking the faux-hawk (fohawk?), what do you think about Halloween costumes: David Beckham or mini-me circa 2007?

    I don’t know, but I have to ask you something about babies in general. Our most recently-born grandchild has the same kind of pink birthmarkish thing on her face. I had never seen it before, and I think my daughter-in-law keeps forgetting to ask the pediatrician about it. Intarweb sources say that it will probably go away within a year. But here’s a kid with the same kind of birthmark, and her parents are doctors! Gimme the skinny on this, please?

    Also, she’s adorable—and so alert!

      Hello! So sorry for the radio silence–I do NOT have this balancing thing down yet.

      Unfortunately/fortunately, you know about as much as I do. The marks on the face are affectionately called angel’s kisses (cute, right?). You’re right, they almost always go away by a year–Aurelia’s are still very much present, but they seemed to have lightened a bit. We don’t know what causes them, but it’s not from birth trauma or anything like that. Not sure that helps at all, but perhaps provides additional reassurance? Congrats on your many grand babies!

        Whew! I was afraid that you were furious at me because you thought I was saying that Aurelia is less than perfect! Which is silly, because of course she is perfect. 😀

        Thanks for the info and the congratulations! As you might imagine, they are all completely delightful. The 2.5-month-old looks like a giant compared to the newborn twins!

        Don’t respond. Just give Aurelia a kiss for me. That will be a much better use of your time.

        how are you feeling? any residual dizziness?

        Oh, stop worrying, you silly thing! I am way too concerned about how people feel about me, and it looks like you are too! Now lie back down and take a nap while you still can! 😉

        I still have some residual dizziness, doctor. 🙂 The doc I saw on Saturday (who was the one on call for the practice during Saturday walk-in hours) said that adults’ ear infections tend to be of the inner ear, which accounts for the dizziness. So I take meclizine no more than once a day for it. I probably just don’t shake things off as easily as I used to, because I’m 56. And I do enjoy getting older, except for not healing as quickly as I used to. I have more fun every year!
