Bart trains & butt paste
Last Saturday, Alex went on his first BART ride. We got off at Powell and looked over the mall for Renee's birthday. He was extremely well behaved and didn't start fussing until we were about 3 minutes away from our stop back in Dublin. He is sitting up by himself for long periods of time now - can sit up for about a half-hour unassisted. We got him a play pen to be on the safe side, since we can't lay him on his mat anymore without coming out and finding him half way across the room. He likes to sit in it and play with his toys. He likes to chew his thumb, and we are hoping that he isn't going to start sucking it. Last night/today, he got his first real case of diaper rash due to pooping so much. When I wiped it, he went hysterical and it almost made me cry because I could see that his little butt crack was so raw & painful. I bought him some boudreaux butt paste or whatever it's called, and some balmex. So far Balmex is the best only because it is so thick and doesn't melt off as fast as desitin.
