This is my daughter (see above photo). And we are learning what H-Pylori is first hand this week. All last month my daughter had stomach problems, and they continued through this month, so I took her into the doctor’s office, where they took me seriously thankfully, and ordered a stool sample test. Last night, I got a text from the mychart app that my … Read More H- Pylori – what the heck is it?
I have been using Lightroom for a few days now to edit my photos, since my new camera uses RAW CR3 files, and my older version of Photoshop Elements did not support that specific file, and I really don’t LOVE Lightroom yet. I find it annoying that this program slows down my computer so much, just to edit some light/colors. I am paying monthly … Read More Hello Monday
These past few days have been a bit of an eye opener for me. I felt alone and cried over some stupid things. I felt like a failure as a mother because my daughter keeps having stomach issues, but after realizing that IF she has Celiac… I am not to blame. I know people who have it and contamination happens. Today I spoke to … Read More Accidentally here – Gluten Free / Homeschool /ADHD / Food Allergies
My daughter has FPIES. And for the last few months we have gone symptom free, for the most part. We avoided trigger foods and opened up to new recipes and were able to introduce home made and store bought paleo pizza, muffins, and crackers (all wheat, oat and rice free), to Lillian. Today I sit here in my living room with a head ache. … Read More Being a mother to a child with food allergies… or possibly Celiac
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!
We found out last night from ancestry.com that my husband is 63% Irish, and yesterday also happened to be the day I take my daughter’s monthly photos. So we are showing some Irish pride in them for her! My daughter is growing up SO FAST. Now that it is confirmed that my husband is over half Irish, he is extremely happy. We knew his … Read More 15 months old – My Irish Baby
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
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
This is just going to be a prominent topic for me on this blog. Food – Allergies and my search for safe healthy foods for my toddler that she can actually eat. Yesterday, my family and I went to Sprouts (that is a super market in our town, and it sells food that is clearly labeled Gluten Free.) They seem to have one of … Read More The search for food
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
