No Whey!!!

Our Family had a crazy weekend, On Friday afternoon 30 min after feeding Baby J his top lip started to swell, so I called Shane home and on his way home Baby J's bottom lip started to swell along with his cheeks and ears. Shane called 911 and the fire department came and took his vitals. He was breathing OK but he had some slight wheezing in his right lung. He also started to get hives and white welts on his arms and legs. The fire department called the pediatric clinic and spoke with the on call doctor who said that he had all the symptoms of Hand Foot & Mouth Disease & to watch him over night and take him in to the clinic in the morning. After they left Shane and I both looked at him and said we need to take him to the E.R. We called a friend to come over and help Shane give Baby J a Priesthood Blessing and while we were waiting the Pediatrician called and told us to take him to the E.R. By the time I got to the E.R. a 30min drive Baby J's symptoms had started to improve, the swelling in his lips started to go down. They took us in right away and the first thing the nurse said was that he had an allergic reaction to something. ( My sister & I had suspected he had a milk allergy that was causing his extreme eczema) They gave him a steroid injection and some benadryl & he fell fast asleep. In the end it was a whey protein allergic reaction. So mom is on a no whey diet, (milk, cheese, butter, Ice cream, Dairy of any kind & whole grains like whole wheat, oats, and barley basically everything I know and love) Baby J is as happy and healthy as ever and his skin looks amazing.
I am also proud to mention that Alex lost his first tooth, he came home from school beaming with joy holding a baggie with his little front tooth. The Tooth Fairy came, took his little tooth and left him with a dollar coin.

O My Heaven Look Who's Lucky Number Seven

Mr. Zander is so happy to be 7. He had a great birthday and he wanted to go out to dinner at IHOP for his birthday meal. And of course he wanted a crayon like his siblings, so his was blue.

Sake's Alive Look Who's Five

Our Princess turned five. She liked her brothers cake so much, that she wanted one just like it; but of course pink. She woke up to a pink decorated house and kept saying my celebrations, look at all these celebrations. I think she got decorations and celebrations confused. For her special dinner she wanted hot dogs and Cheeto's
My baby girl is growing up so fast.
