hi! just dropping by to see what you're up to.
lucky you're an optimist during the tough days of crying. mom's drinking cow milk is the #1 cause of colic + in breastfed babies too :)

happy spring!

Hi, I just found your blog via Bloesem Kids. I just wanted to say, "Hang in there. It does get better, much better, and not too far off." It feels like just yesterday I was in your shoes, juggling the seemingly incessant needs of my newborn daughter and my active 2 year-old son. I remember EVERYTHING being so hard those first few weeks, especially because she needed to nurse so often. I would spend many sleepless nights with my newborn and greet my son with bleary eyes in the morning, wishing desperately to sleep when the baby slept yet not wanting to deprive my son of alone time with me. i, too, had my mom helping the first few weeks and i was so scared when she left that I wouldn't be able to handle things. But, of course, I did and the kids and I have now settled into a rhythm. You will too. And as your newborn son (who by the way is absolutely adorable in his beautiful outfits!) gets more alert and active, he will interact with your older son and life will quite literally be beautiful as they revel in each other's company. You will still have some hard times with the juggling, but gradually you learn techniques and you get better at the whole thing. A lot of it has to do with confidence and time gives you just that.

Wow, you're a Typepad featured blog. I'm glad I found you.

My son, who is almost five, is also allergic to dairy. Also to eggs and all nuts.

It's great when you first figure it out. And then what it means slowly sinks in. You'll be happy to know that almost all kids outgrow dairy allergies!
