On a Saturday night, in a town like this, I forget all my songs about trains

If you know why my baby's face looks like this then you can understand ALL the fun I am having today!
If you do not know why her face looks like this I will give you multiple choice
A. She got a hold of a Sharpie
B. She got a hold of Kool-aid powder
C. She's trying to be the clown from Spawn (Ryan added this one--google it)
D. She has thrush that is being treated with gentian violetThe correct answer is D. Sometimes I think the universe is telling me to quit breastfeeding...or maybe it's Satan...either way at this point we're in for the long haul, so a little thrush won't stop us!

Too bad Josh Ritter didn't sing a song with the lyrics "I've got a blueberry for a daughter!" (The title lyrics are from the song "Me and Jiggs" by Josh Ritter)

But if you stop breastfeeding you wouldn't thane these adorable pictures. She looks happy and healthy - and so cute, hang in there.

I will need to google thrush. I think you had it in your early teens when you had black stuff on your tongue. Good luck!!!

I've never liked blueberries until today. That is one adorable baby, even with a blue face. I hope she's not too miserable. We love you guys and can't wait to see you (hopefully tomorrow). Love, Mom I

Katie, hang in there. Liesel never had thrush but I had yeast on my breasts and it made nursing quite painful. I treated it with a solution of vinegar and water that I put on there after every time L nursed. We didn't have to use gentian violet but got close.

Just one more thing Liv and Poppa have in common! I loved the taste of the gentian violet (NOT)!
