Update #2

Well it looks like things are not getting much better. P-nut's bottom is very red again. She had about 6 bowel movements yesterday. I called the doctor's office this morning and they said that it is still a little concerning, but if there is texture to it then it should be ok. They said that if it is watery, then I should bring her in with a sample. It does have texture, but it still bothers me that she is pooping this much. As the day progressed she seemed to be doing better (2 bowel movements). Later this evening I went to give Grace a bath and I noticed that her left nipple was a little red and slightly swollen. Jason thought I was kind of overreacting and maybe it was just from him holding her (Grace does tend to have pretty sensitive skin). Well after her bath I noticed that it was still there. Jason thought that we should just wait and see how it looks tomorrow morning. Well at about 9:00 pm I changed her diaper and it was still looked exactly the same. Maybe I am overreacting, but this is just really starting to make me nervous. I tried to do some research online and I was not able to find anything. I just wish our little P-nut would get better. Thank you for all of your prayers. We really appreciate it! Please continue to pray for P-nut's health. Hopefully we will have great news.
On a side note, I landed a summer/part-time job at Target. I will be working in the Starbucks located in their store. I cannot tell you how excited I am about this. I can walk/ride a bike to work everday. I also love coffee!

Hey Stacey,
Pierce has ALWAYS been a very poopy kiddo...all 2.5 years of his life. It has actually just started tapering off a bit lately. He would have on average of 4 poops a day and some days, more. They've always been soft, too. He was pretty much just breastfed, so sometimes I think it just has to do with their digestive system. I know it makes for a tough time with diaper rash, though. We struggled with that a lot as well. Hang in there...I think she'll grow out of this as her body gets used to everything.
Very cool about the Starbucks job. I've always wondered if it's hard to run all those machines (and if you can drink all the lattes you want!). You'll have to tell me!! :)Love you guys.

Hey Stace - Just wanted you to know that we are still praying for your sweet girl. Have you tried the BRAT diet? That is suppose to help with babies who are really poopie. I don't know, just a suggestion. I really do hope she feels better soon.

Also, congrats on the job! That is awesome. A dear friend of mine was a manager at Starbucks for 6 years before she became a Mom. She loved it and always says that it is a wonderful company to work for! You will have to keep us updated on how it goes! :)

Much love and prayers to you all! :)
