Going on a Jean Spree



If you've followed us for a while, you know that Ryder has really bad eczema.  Since it's been so hot out, I've noticed it's gotten worse.  I'm assuming it flares up from the heat.  Here is a picture of what it looks like in cool temperatures, inside the house.  So you can only imagine when the heat gets to him, it's double this.

This is how his skin looks constantly.  I put his prescription cream on him every day, but it's just not doing the trick.  I guess we'll have to make another trip to the dermatologist.  The only thing that makes all this better is that it doesn't bother him.  He rarely scratches at it, so I think it's just more of a mental thing for us.


Well, I've been cleaning out the closets and have finally broken down and realized none of these babies will ever fit again. 

I've been holding on to them in hopes that maybe, just maybe, I'll be able to squeeze into them.  It's been 10 months and no such luck.  After the hips widen in pregnancy, I don't think there's any going back.  With that said, I will be making a delivery to the Orange Peel in Fondren on September 3, which is the earliest they could get me an appointment.  In tow, will also be tons of really great tops, but they're just a little too clingy for my liking.  In October, they will be taking winter items.  Got alot of that ready to go as well.  I love cleaning out the closet!


I helped my friend Johnlyn Evans start a blog yesterday so if you know her, be sure to add her to your page so you can keep up with the journey of her pregnancy: http://www.johnlynplusone.blogspot.com/.


  1. Are those jeans on top Silvers? I used to buy those at the buckle..

  2. ha they are citizens of humanity... one of my many reed's purchases!

  3. madyson has terrible eczema has for years!

    We have to use arm&hammer no dyes detergant
    We bath her in cephasil(sp) bath wash
    we coat her in the cephasil cream (not the lotion) before bed

    the prescription stuff made it worse. Also when it gets really bad we give her zyrtec on top of everything else.

    After 4 years we finally have it under control!

  4. We use cetaphil for soap and hair in the tub and a magical cream called Delbase. Its a compound thats super thick and creamy but not greesy. You get it in the pharmacy at St. D. You don't need a prescription. ITS THE WONDER CREAM!!!! Yes, the prescription stuff didn't help us either. I coat Crosby in Delbase before bed so he can sleep in it.
