Lillian is 18 months old!

Time flies when you are having fun being a mom. My daughter turned 18 months old yesterday and I still cannot believe how fast time is going by. I really do feel like she was born only a few months ago, but she is in fact a toddler now. She is almost walking (some of you know about her occupational therapy she gets a … Read More Lillian is 18 months old!

Just a daily blog

Well today was just a nice day – I didn’t get any house cleaning done – so tomorrow I will be doing most of that. But I did get to spend some time with my daughter and my husband. My son was at school, so later on he and I went out in the snow to get dinner. I didn’t feel much like cooking … Read More Just a daily blog

From baby to toddler

Lily is my second child. I currently have a 14 month old and a 10 year old. I know, the age difference is pretty far apart, but things don’t always go as planned. My first child is from a previous relationship, that flopped like a dead fish. My ex was not faithful in our relationship and he told me one day that he did … Read More From baby to toddler

Valentine’s Day – keeping busy with my family

Well today is Valentine’s Day. My husband loved his gifts, as far as I can tell (I bought him some cool candles – don’t worry he likes candles) and I got him a blue tooth meat thermometer – yes he loved it! And I got him chocolates too! I got a waffle iron (YES I did want this, I actually asked for one), and … Read More Valentine’s Day – keeping busy with my family

Diet – Low Carb / Low sugar

Almost everyone has heard of the Keto diet – and how fast you can lose weight on it. And there are many misconceptions about how “healthy” or “not healthy” it is. I have tried Keto and I did lose weight but I had a very hard time finding foods I could eat since I do not eat certain meats, and I dislike certain foods. … Read More Diet – Low Carb / Low sugar

Making goals in Occupational Therapy

This morning Lily’s occupational therapist and the care coordinator came over for an evaluation and to plan out the next few months for Lily. We are going to continue 1x a week visits on Tuesdays and we updated our goals. We are hoping to get Lily to crawl on her knees and hands by April. Right now at almost 14 months old she is … Read More Making goals in Occupational Therapy

Daily life – Daily food logs for the baby

Well, it finally happened… I have decided to make a daily food log for my smallest child, Lily. She is the one I write about having FPIES (the food allergy) and I have kept mental notes of all the foods she can’t have but this past week she has had skin related allergy symptoms. This is new to us, because usually her food allergies … Read More Daily life – Daily food logs for the baby

Food Trialing… again

I am trying to expand my daughter’s food options. Every time I go to the baby food section of the store there are so many types of mixed baby foods for her to try, the problem is…she is allergic to so many different ingredients. Here is what she can’t have: Oats, Wheat, Rice, Broccoli, Pineapple, Turkey and Corn. (so far) Now I am looking … Read More Food Trialing… again

Things are getting better, sometimes

This week my mother came into town to spend time with me and my children. It’s been nice to have her help around the house as well as her help with the children. She and my son went out to the movies to watch “The kid who would be king,” and I hear it was a good movie. The little cakes I made in … Read More Things are getting better, sometimes

A little normalcy

Juggling family life, work and any illnesses we suffer in our home (including mental illnesses) can take it’s toll. This is about my dog. She’s a year and a half old and just a wack-a-do. She is good around me and pretty much only me. So when the kids were in a room with her she would go bonkers, but now I have time … Read More A little normalcy

10 Must have baby items

I am a mother of 2 beautiful children. I have my 10 year old, Calvin. And I have my 13 month old, Lillian. Having children that are almost 10 years apart is not entirely too hard, but it’s not the same. First things first – there were a lot of baby items that people invented over the past 10 years. Big surprise – 50% … Read More 10 Must have baby items

FPIES – Food Protein-Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome

Last night my daughter started acting odd. She is generally a very happy baby girl and the only time she gets fussy is when she needs a nap. So I decided to lay her down to see if maybe she was tired. With in 10 minutes she was screaming in her room, so I went in and picked her up. She had a wet … Read More FPIES – Food Protein-Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome
