Food Allergies

I have been thinking about how far Julian has come in just 7+ months. We have come a long way since October 2013. His first year of life was a difficult life for me and on our family/marriage. It's true if mommy ain't happy, nobody is. Looking back on it I probably should of been on medication. It was really hard to deal with all the screaming and itching all day long. Especially knowing everything that you are trying isn't working. I would have to put him in his crib because I just couldn't deal with it some times.

I am so glad I finally didn't listen to the doctor who kept on insisting that it wasn't food allergies. And in all honesty I want to blame the doctor but I do understand that it is all the rage now to have allergies. And his philosophy on things just didn't match mine and how I felt so we changed doctors. I am so glad I went with my gut and demanded to have him tested. Our life has been so much better. Once we cut everything out he pooped like 7 times a day for about 5 days and then he started to put on weight quickly. It can be hard sometimes when Julian sees other kids eating things and he can't have them, but that is just a fact of life. Our next challenge is traveling to California and being around an uncontrolled environment. Here's to Benadryl! :)

He is a happy kid now. He still screams and throws fits but in the normal way an almost 2 year old would. He sprawls out on the ground and puts his face in the ground. He is a little more feisty than I would like but that's him and I love it. He loves to put underwear on his head and give lots of hugs.
