Mama



It has taken us a while to get this video but because Mama was sick on Saturday and Jack was very worried he said, 'Mama' all weekend.

Jack Sized Cupcakes

I couldn't wait to try the new tin and tray that I got from Aunty Jules so this afternoon Jack and I made Jack-sized cupcakes and Jack had his first taste of cupcakes. Guess what - he loved them!

Me and My Boy - by Mum


This is me and my boy in his first Christmas T-shirt all ready for tomorrow nights urban family Christmas dinner. We are home from work today because my boy has been sick again, this time it's his tummy. But I have to tell, I am happy to look after my boy even when he is being sick everywhere because I love him so much.

I love you Blinky - get some rest and you will feel better soon.

10 months old today

Jack
Make custom Glitter Graphics

Dad was home for a nice change this weekend and we had a great time going to CISAC for a swim, having John & Jules for a bbq and spending some time at home. Mum was freaking out at my confidence in the water, I can jump in off the side and climb up the pool steps on my own. Yesterday I met Santa for the first time but we haven't got a photo yet because that awful man made me cry! Mum said we will see him again in a few weeks. You can see from this photo that my eczema has almost completely gone and I am also eating white bread and yogurt!

Jack saw the immunologist

For the last 4 months Jack has had a special diet that didn't include any dairy or soy because it made him sick when he was 5 months old when he was just starting formula so that Mum could go back to work.

We went to the 'witch doctor' for Jack's excema who said he also had a wheat allergy and the whole family should also avoid wheat but that was driving us nuts so we went to the 'real doctor.'

We has lots of tests done and he isn't allergic to nothing - not even
peanuts (thanks Aunty Jules) or seafood or milk or wheat or anything.

The specialist says that it is most likely 'lactose intolerance' and
that if we continue to do what we are doing that is good.

He said we should try him with more foods eg. egg, fish etc. at one
per week and try some of the cows milk formula again and a bit of
yogurt and cheese.

He said the eczema was the best he had seen - it was no big deal and
he didn't think he was at all 'scabby.'

He reckoned that with the amount of milk that I consume that if Jack
had a true allergy to cows milk then he would be really upset, not
sleeping and scabby - not to say that these things would never
develop.

He reckoned that if we cut out a lot of foods from his diet, simply to
avoid a bit of eczema that it could lead to malnourishment.

Done and dusted - $400 later and we are good parents with a happy baby and piece of mind.

Phew!

KID CITY!




Mum heard that Kid City was heaps of fun so we went there today. Mum has decided that in future, Kid City is for special occasions only because the screaming kids gave Mummy a head ache.

My favourite things were the jumping castle, the ball pit and the race track although I could only find the reverse gear!
