My Complete Profile

Email Me

Kayla, my oldest. She is 4 1/2 and is a sweet, loving and silly little girl. She took us 2 ½ years and 3 IVF’s to conceive. Kayla is allergic to dairy. We manage her allergy and work to balance her safety with giving her a normal childhood. Kayla loves to read books and play games - she amazes me every day.

Alysa, my youngest. She is 3 years old and is a silly little spitfire. She’s our monkey and loves to climb on everything. She was a “natural” baby, but it was only b/c of my wonderful doctors that we were able to stop an impending miscarriage. Alysa suffers from Acid Reflux Disease and sleep apnea. She may be little, but she has a big personality. She adores her big sister and is so much fun to be around. She keeps me laughing every day.

Food Allergy Awareness Week
*sticky post*

Next week is Food Allergy Awareness Week and I’ve been thinking about what I can do to help spread the word about Food Allergies. Then I found that Ria at Check My Tag is hosting a place for all of us to share our experiences with Food Allergies for either ourselves or our children.

So I will be posting next week our story about Kayla’s allergy – how we found out, how we manage and the changes we’ve made in our lives to cope. For those who live with food allergies, please consider joining in to help educate everyone on the impact that Food Allergies have, not only on those who are allergic, but also on those around them.

My son's allergies hit us hard too, but we've learned a lot about what he can eat. Our biggest problem nowadays is that he's a typical picky eater, so that, combined with the limited range of foods that he can eat, means that we've got about six meals that he eats over and over again, all week.

Are both of your children allergic? Our youngest has none of the crazy eczema that our first daughter had. We're hopeful that she'll avoid the anaphylaxis that our oldest has to peanut, egg and (newly discovered) dogs.
