Love fall but dread some of what comes with it......

So by now you all know how much I love this time of year.  Birthday season, football season, Halloween, Thanksgiving and then.......CHRISTMAS!  But with all of the love of this, there is one thing I cannot seem to escape no matter how hard I want to.....RAGWEED!!!!!!! I'm allergic to it, Isabelle is really allergic to it and we both end up being down for the count for a few days.  She has been snotting and sneezing and wheezing for a week now, I started with the last cold front on Thursday as my best friend arrived from Florida.  Poor baby, nothing worse than to see your child not feeling well or able to breathe.  We've been on inhalers, and meds for a week and now are starting nebulizer treatments to get her some relief.  Lots of TLC for her right now.  I'm on meds and may go the the doc for some antibiotics tomorrow just as a precaution due to Lana.  Speaking of the amazing gift from God, we have her check up in Little Rock on Thursday this week and I'll be posting an update afterwards.  All is expected to go well though.  I've had alot of friends reecently become more interested in the GF/DF lifestyle recently due to a number of reasons but I'll be posting some more helpful tips and info starting tomorrow but tonight in my crazy foggy head phase, I wanted to share a link to an article I wrote for a local magazine on our story of adoption....enjoy:

The article is called Sitting at a Crossroads

  1. For me this time of year means the dreaded cold is coming. We live in Montreal and there is way too much snow and below freezing temps here for me :( Sigh.

    Congrats on your top 25 Food Allergy Mom Blog nomination! I'm listed as well and it's given me an idea.
