Back on the TED

So far 2016 has made me yearn with longing for the return of 2015. And 2015 was a really rough year for us. Go, 2016! The sad part is, the New Year started off great! I had to work that weekend, but I picked up a nifty 30+ hour layover … Continue reading

Looking Back: 2015

I hope you all had a really excellent Christmas! It’s almost the end of 2015, and I figured it would be good to do a little “year end recap” and update. For starters, I’ve been rather quiet on the blog front lately, but that’s actually because I’ve been writing furiously … Continue reading

Weaning, Post-TED Food Trials & MCAD

It’s been a rough few weeks. In fact, there’s been so much happening that I can’t fit it all in one post, so this will be a nifty “ongoing storyline”. To begin, we do have some exciting news! October 30th, I arrived home from work in the early afternoon. As soon as I … Continue reading

Holding Pattern

We’ve been in a bit of a holding pattern the last month. Sickness ALWAYS throws our plans to the wind. After our trip to Chicago, the boys caught whatever cooties I came down with. It took almost two weeks for the sneezing and heavy mucous production to abate for all … Continue reading

Sick Again

It’s been so quiet here for the last two weeks that I can hear crickets chirping, but there’s a good reason: we broke out of our comfort zone in a BIG way – and then we all got sick. Boo. I’ll share more about our trip in a whole post of its … Continue reading

We Love Potatos!!

On Thursday, August 13th, Darrel and I declared russet potatos a safe food for Zac. It’s his 18th safe food, and we couldn’t be happier! For his part, Zac adores potatos. He gets excited by mashed potatos, thrilled with hamburger hash, and ecstatic over French fries. For our part, life … Continue reading

When Band-aids and Bell Peppers Attack!

Well. That had to be the absolute weirdest sickness I’ve ever had. After I said I was definitely getting sick, I went to bed feeling like total dirt. When I woke up, I still felt like dirt…but the fever had broken! I spent the morning absolutely wanting to crawl into … Continue reading

Desperate to De-Ice

Last week I worked Thursday through Sunday, at which point in was snowing in Chicago and the only way to get anywhere remotely near home was to fly to Little Rock, spend the night in the airport, and rent a car to drive home. When I walked through my front … Continue reading

Christmas Stories

The end of the year was so busy around here I didn’t write much. Just to keep the story-telling flow going, I figured I’d fill in the gaps for the last few weeks. When I last updated about the boys, Zac had vomited and we didn’t know why. We still … Continue reading

Riding the Roller Coaster

The last post I wrote shared how grateful I feel for our little “not normal” lives. I was. I am. But, you know, the reality is that no one can sustain any feeling on a 24/7 basis. Not even gratitude for the blessings you have. Last week was an absolute … Continue reading
