Yesterday was a perfect Mother's Day. Phat Daddy surprised me with a trip to my favourite restaurant - Cheesecake Factory! This meant a trip to Buffalo (holding our collective breath since we don't have a birth certificate for the baby). We had a fun time. We didn't spend tons of money. We did shop at Target and Walden and had a blast.
I'm still ever so grateful for our portable dvd player for the van.
The Baby's Health
I had an *interesting* visit with the naturopath on Friday. Perhaps more details to follow soon. It was pretty stressful. But ... we believe the source of the baby's gassiness and sore tummy is a milk allergy. Since I'm breastfeeding it means eliminating all dairy from my diet except yogurt. It means NO CHEESE. So. I enjoyed the day yesterday and now I'm jumping on the dairy free bandwagon. I actually have a huge list of things that I should and should not eat (basically no sugar) and so I sort of feel like I'm drifiting in this new world of organics, no milk and little sugar. She tried to cut out my coffee consumption, but that may just kill me.
It's Almost my Birthday!
I'm turning 30. Eek. Actually, this isn't a huge deal to me. The 30 thing that is. What is a big deal is that it's my birthday. And, I am moving into another decade.
Lately I've sort of felt I'm ready to be in my 30's. I have 2 kids, a house and a van. Seriously. Not to mention I don't feel over the hill. My grandad is going strong at 99. I have a long way to go!
