First of all, an update on the ND appointment. My ND turned out to be a spunky young red head! So, she was easy to talk to, and didn't make me feel weird or anything. She asked me a zillion questions, and then did a bit of a physical exam. She made a few suggestions, and said to start where I feel comfortable, and move on from there. What I decided to do first is to go diary-free for a month. If that makes a difference, then great, because that's the cheapest way to go! She also gave me a list of vitamins I can take, and a few other things like Omega 3, 6, & 9, and Acidophilis.
If none of that helps, I can do a blood test for food allergies. So, we'll see how it goes, and if NONE of this helps, she has some more suggestions. She said this is the best place to start though, so I'll trust her on that!
Today is my first day dairy-free, and it's kinda hard. Like, when you know you can't have something, it makes you want it more! I keep noticing all the things that I can't have, like cheese, and the yummy dip my mom made. Anyone have any advice for going dairy-free?
Last night Keith surprised us with a night at the local Days Inn. We had a great time in the pool and on the waterslide. Bruce & Heather and Selah joined us for a while, which was really nice. We had the whole place to ourselves. It was really great to be able to not be self conscious in my bathing suit! Let's just say that the 2 piece I bought after Rowan was born doesn't fit quite like it should after baby #2! It's not terrible, but well, I need to find a new bathing suit.
Speaking of bathing suits, has anyone ever bought a suit from here? It is only in the US, and I LOVE their bathing suits. I'm trying to figure out how to make sure I could order the right size, and get it to me without too much hassle.
Does anyone know someone locally that needs an infant car seat? I would like to sell mine, since it expires next year. I would like $50 for it, or a decent offer. It would be great for someone having their last baby. It's a Graco Snugride, and I bought it new in 2005.
Oh yeah, and we also planted our garden on Wednesday. Or should I say, Keith did most of the work :) He was joking the other day about buying himself a dress because he does so much 'female work'. I punched him. (Jokingly of course). I see where he is coming from, but I also hope he sees where I am coming from. We grew up very differently.
Keith grew up on a farm. He helped his dad on the field, as well as in the shop. His mom and sisters took care of the yard work and gardening.
I grew up in town. My mom has worked out of the home off and on through the years, and was really sick for parts of those years too. My dad did a lot of the yard work and gardening, partially because he enjoys it, and partially because he had the time to help. He also learned how to bake bread while my mom was sick.
So, you can see where we don't quite see eye to eye all the time!
Here's a video of Bria trying to crawl. She pushes herself backwards and makes really funny faces!!
And, 2 more pictures of Rowan and Bria. They were playing with the curtains, and it looked neat, so I took some pictures. Gotta love it!
