apple of my eye & food allergy update

I love this kid.


He's totally worth not eating some of my favorite things for.


Our "week of wheat" went well and thankfully it looks like he is not allergic to wheat and we are able to continue to eat it. For this we are extremely grateful!

Our week of dairy did not go as well and it looks like dairy is definitely an allergy culprit. boo . . .

Oh well.

Apples are always good!

Adorable. :-) I am glad the wheat went well. As an encouragement - lots of babies can't handle milk but outgrow that! Brenden couldn't have milk or soy. We would stand at the fridge and beg for yogurt! (As young as he was I did not make Hannah give up milk.) It was SO sad. But we kept him with ZERO milk or dairy for two years and he totally outgrew it. He now has zero problems with it. And he was so bad because of dairy that he spent his first 7 months of life sick and at one point they thought he had whooping cough - all from milk reactions through breastmilk (which our then pediatrician said wasn't possible which is why the long time to figure it out). So never fear, it may not be a lifelong thing. There are so many wonderful alternatives right now that you will still be able to make many of the same meals too!

What a cutie! I'm glad that you're slowly getting to add things back in to your diet. Even though, the little guy is definitely worth it all, I'm sure it's tough at times. Hang in there! Hopefully you'll be able to successfully add other things back soon.

I live for dairy so at this moment my heart goes out to you. Word on the street is soy milk is fabulous

Yay for wheat! I'm saving some soy and almond milk coupons for you. Have you found any you like? Does gelato have dairy? Hope you are having a wonderful week!

That little guy is the apple of Nana's eye too.

So, so happy to hear that you both can eat wheat again!!! Praise God. And, be encouraged, he'll probably outgrow the dairy sensitivity before too long. All three of my sister's boys were dairy sensitive but have become much more "tolerant" of it.
