Growing, growing, growing.

By following all the doctors' recommendations about Ben's allergies and his swallowing problems, Ben has been eating like an Olympian for the past month. He has gained just about two pounds in two months, and is getting stronger with every pound! Learning how to cook foods that are allergen-free and which also puree easily has not been too bad, and the benefits are well worth the work. It is time-consuming, of course... but I'm learning how to fit everything in my daily routine.

With the vomiting completely stopped, Ben has been SO much happier and his eczema has been very well-controlled as a bonus. What a relief!

Now, we will just continue to plug along with the therapy and get this boy crawling. He wants to be independent so badly... and my back wants him to be independent, too.


  1. I'm so happy to hear things are going well. It has to be rewarding to see your hard work paying off in the best of ways!
