This week Uliana discovered the world.
She saw us and smiled.
She reached for her stuffed toys and gurgled.
She said "ah-goo" to just about everything.
Then she decided that the world was all too much and she screamed. Nikolai doned a pair of ear muffs and I wore the baby carrier for two days straight.
Certainly her world was made worse by a seriously sore bout of cradle cap. I didn't think to take a proper picture, but this pretty much sums it up. It was all over her eyelids and eyebrows.
First I tried olive oil and her skin turned red and swelled up. The consensus at the preschool drop off line up was that pure coconut oil would do the trick. Her skin swelled so much that she couldn't fully open her eyes, so I put a call into the midwife. Breast milk was deemed to be the magical cure, and it was. Three days later all the cradle cap is completely gone and her mood is much better. We still have a small bout of crying during the witching hour, but it is only to be expected in a 6 week old.
Shake until it's nicely mixed.
