Itching, Some Feet and a Black Tongue


Babies and Weekend Stuff

I don’t have much for ya right now, but I wanted to say what up (what up!), and to let you know about a little article I wrote for What To Expect. It’s about the transition from infant to baby. From ankle biter to circus performer. From sweet innocence to a bowl of the devil’s nectar.

It’s fun. Peep it here!

So, Natalie’s tongue was like, black this week. Right on the tip and underneath. It’s a good thing I didn’t freak out at all. (read: I totally freaked out). I was like, “AARON I BET SHE ATE A COCKROACH.” But I didn’t call the doctor, oh no. That would make sense. Instead I google imaged “black tongue on baby” and immediately needed a bypass. Don’t ever, ever google image “black tongue on baby.” Never. Anyway, it didn’t give me much. Some riff raff about a stomach infection aftermath, and taking a wash rag to it. The tongue, not the infection. So, I plunged her into the bath and scrubbed her tongue off. She had a BLAST. I was all, “this hurts me more than it hurts you!” I actually didn’t say that.

I’m happy to report her tongue is mostly back to normal. A light, distant shade of gray.

Speaking of, when is the movie coming out? I’m not too sure about their choice of Christian. I LOVE Dakota What’s Her Boob for Anastasia!

That just took an odd turn.

Will’s doing just fine, by the way. No black tongue on him. Only two front bottom toofers and a cranktankerous ‘tude.

Please don’t tell anyone I just said toofers.

Stay tuned, biaaaa.

    I mean when did they get so grown up...seriously?!!! LOVED your post on What to Expect...some solid good advise there! And I'll take your advise and not google the black tongue but I am a curious one so maybe I will take my chances! Happy Friday!! Oh and Nat and all her squishyness in that swing, well it's about the cutest thing for my Friday so thanks for that!!!

    You just hurt my brain so bad and I still can't figure out what you're not trying to give away. I guess I'll have to wait. I will never ever ever google black tongue on baby. Horror, I'm sure.

    One sweet day your babies will dig into the archives of your wonderful blog and say simultaneously to each other, "Those weren't shiitake mushrooms mom liked to eat, were they?!?" I'm teasing, homie. You're totally normal. ;-)

    OMG so cute. And I'd totally flip my shiz if my baby's tongue was black (as in, I'd Google it too)!

    Too cute at every age. My granddaughter is 2.5 now. We were looking at some of her first year pics. Unbelievable the change!!!!! You love her at this age, but you miss the baby too.

    Those babies are just adorbs. Yeah, Googling medical issues frequently lead to near heart attacks in this house, and yet I still continue to do it.
