Kids and food can make for a super stressful combination, especially when it entails a child refusing food you are giving them. Every child is unique and every family has to make their own choices. I am sharing how we feed our kiddos, why we believe food is important and how I believe it has shaped their food preferences.
Food allergies is a topic that is always a little controversial, even in like-minded circles sometimes. Everyone has an opinion and their doctor (or doctors) has an opinion. There are those people that do not even believe food allergies exist and then there are those that may choose to eliminate a food from their diet because it's "trendy" or the "thing to do" right now. Both of these groups are extreme and not ones I would personally take advice from. Everyone's body is unique and responds to foods differently. It's a fairly long post today, documenting our allergy story.
So how many different potty training sites, books, opinions can there possibly be on potty training?? They are everywhere. First of all, this is not one of them. This is a story about an unexpected potty training bonus to a new routine in an attempt to ease nap time.
It seems like Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) has every symptom/effect under the sun. Everything from irregular periods, infertility, cysts on the ovaries, acne, unwanted hair growth, thinning hair (where you do want it - on your head), elevated testosterone to the more serious issues effects such as, diabetes, high blood pressure, increased risk of heart disease and really the list seems to go on. (source: Mayo Clinic) If you are trying to get pregnant, check out my Pregnancy Story. For those with kiddos, PCOS just doesn't go away.
The baby just got her first pair of glasses. Big sister picked out the color, lavender. They are super cute. But she is just under two so getting her to keep them on can be a fight - except not for daddy.
Fourth of July weekend is always a big weekend. We typically drive back home to see family. My husband's birthday is the end of June and there are a few other birthdays in July. His family makes a big deal of birthdays, but I like it. Its fun to celebrate with everyone and let the kids be around extended family. But the four to six hour drive can be a challenge - especially with no DVD player and a car sick prone kiddo.
Faith is something I believe we all have, it's just a matter of what you have faith IN. For me, I have faith in God and that He is in control of all things, despite what I may think at times. My faith has been tested and strengthened in so many ways over the last few years. Most recently, I am discovering a whole new level of faith.
It's hard to believe that my baby is 5 1/2 months ALREADY!! It has gone by so fast that I can barely remember these past few months, it's just blurry. I am trying to slow things down and take more time for "the little things". I do not believe in holding them back from milestones and if they are ready, then they are ready.
Please check back often as I am adding or modifying pages as time permits.
