Jen under the weather

I have a bad sore throat and am afraid Claire is coming down with a cold too.
I stayed home with Emily today and Mark and Claire went with Vaughn, Andrew, Elsa and her two nieces to La Brea tar pits and LACMA. They all had a great time.
Emily was quite taken with Andrew before they left. He was making faces for her and she was very entertained.

Claire is still very itchy at least for part of each day. She wears long sleeves, tights under her pants and a onesie that snaps at the bottom so that her arms legs and torso are not exposed for her to scratch. (This is not ideal with the 85 degree weather we've been having. And it is not ideal for ease of toilet training.) Meal times, bath time and time spent on the potty and or having clothes changed are prime candidates for scratching fits. Please pray for her skin. I am currently applying 1% hydrocortisone a couple times a day to trouble areas which seems to help some.

Sorry you're under the weather. Hope you're feeling better now. We'll pray. The recent rain you've had in L.A. should be good for Claire's itchiness. Love, Nanna
