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.

My Budding Advocate
It is really amazing to watch Kayla's understanding of her allergy grow. Her knowledge and understanding has been growing before my eyes the past couple of months.

-We took the girls to an Elmo show today (pictures to come tomorrow as I'm not at home) and initially Kayla was a bit fearful of "Elmo" and said she didn't want to go. So she came up with this reason...
"Daddy, I can't got to Elmo because there will be dairy there."

-Getting out of the car this past week at Walgreens...
"Mommy. Look there is dairy, right there."

-Walking past the ticket counter at the theater today...
"Mommy. Look, that lady is eating dairy (pointing to the ticket lady)."

-After eating pineapple today at my Mom's house...
"There is no dairy in pineapple Mom. It is safe for me."

-During Elmo today, there was a big chunk of swiss cheese in the play. The first time Kayla saw it our conversation went like this...
Kayla - "Look Mommy, that is cheese."
Me - "Yes, Kayla you're right."
Kayla - "It's cheese for my Sister, Alysa."

-We are taking a trip next week to my Sister's and she has so wonderfully planned every meal dairy-free. So when I sat Kayla down yesterday to tell her that Aunt Christine is planning every meal to have no dairy, Kayla's face lit up with a big smile and said, "It will be safe for me?"

It's a blessing when you have family that cares so much about your families needs - our family is that way and I've always been thankful!
