Hi,

Sorry it has taken to post the promised pictures of Alex.
Alexander Jakob was born on 9/3/06 via emergency c-section as he was frank breech.
He was born with the collodian membrane which shed within 3 to 4 weeks after birth.
He has a very minor case of non-bullous CIE according to the ped dermatologist we saw at UNC Chapel Hill. The genetic dr also diagnosed him with this at birth. We go back to the genetic dr in Jan. He has small white flakes at times and very dry skin on his hands, feet, and head.
I guess the biggest shock to me was that at our 4D 29 week ultrasound he had long eyelashes and when he was born, they were gone along with the eyebrows. None of the doctors can tell me what happened in the 6 weeks from the ultrasound to his birth. He has his eyebrows, long top eyelashes and the bottom eyelashes are coming back as well.
I don't know how to post pics so I will link to our website.
Here is Alex right after he was born. You can see the dry scales of skin. http://www.atwoodclan.com/alex1a.jpg http://www.atwoodclan.com/alex2a.jpg
Here is Alex the next day. Starting to look better. http://atwoodclan.com/alex3.jpg
Right before going home from NICU http://www.atwoodclan.com/alex4a.jpg
A few days after being home http://www.atwoodclan.com/alex5.jpg

Alex a few days ago-he is 3 mos http://www.atwoodclan.com/alex121106a.jpg http://www.atwoodclan.com/alex1211063a.jpg http://www.atwoodclan.com/alex12110064a.jpg

If someone knows how I can post the image in my post, let me know.

Michelle

What a cutie pie! His newborn pics look so much like my daughter...She is 7 1/2 months...with what we are currently calling mild CIE. She is also especially dry on her hands, feet and scalp. What are you doing as far as skin care? He looks fantastic!

To post pics...you upload them to photobucket, and then copy/paste the address below the photo marked IMG into your post...

Nice to meet you and Alex! Dawnn and Ayla

Congratulations! He is such a cutie. Seeing all of these cute baby pictures almost makes me want another one. But, I'm content with enjoying everyone elses babies now and getting to see my kids growing up each step of the way. Thanks for sharing!
