February Fun


Pretend she is holding a sucker

Same here

Isabelle had her appointment with the pediatric GI specialist this week. They are doing more blood work to rule out Crohn's disease, Irritable Bowel syndrome, check for more food allergies, and numerous other tests. In about a month, she'll have a lactose breath test. Hopefully, we'll get some answers. She had to have her blood drawn and she flipped out! Screaming, kicking, etc. Poor sweetie was terrified. She got to have a happy meal treat when it was all over.

I'm no longer a smart phone user! I have gone back to the boring side. I will say that I forgot how great it is to have a battery that lasts so long! I do miss my camera though. (Thanks for my new cup, Christina!)

Little buddy has been sick with a cold (runny nose, cough) for the last few days. This morning he woke up around 6:30am and when I met him in the hallway he said he had puked on the floor. I can't find where he did though! I think he was starting to get sick when I picked him up and ran downstairs with him and I don't think he actually had thrown up yet. Unfortunately, he did throw up about 4 times after that though. He was feeling better by the afternoon. Side note, in this picture you can see where his tooth is starting to turn black. He ran into the back of a little girl's head at church recently and knocked his tooth out of alignment. Looks like he has some nerve damage. I'll be taking him in to see the dentist in March.

Ilya is at a really fun stage right now. She tries to repeat everything we say. She has the cutest laugh. She is a climber! She can even wiggle out of her high chair straps to stand up. She keeps me on my toes.


  1. Oh no! Whats wrong with Isabelle?? Poor sweet girl. Praying for her!

    1. Thank you for praying! She has an almond allergy that affects her gastrointestinally. I suspect there's another issue going on, as well. She has problems with stomach cramps and diarrhea frequently. It's pitiful to see her in pain.
