Monday’s are never bad when they are 70* outside, and the kids are in the best of moods. Yesterday, we started the day off at Owen’s allergist where we learned he will start a series of “challenges” this week with some new foods. This friday he will eat eggs, at the doctor’s office, and we have to wait around for up to four hours to see if he has a reaction. I have no idea how he will be occupied for that long at the doctors. I am hoping he naps at some point for me! Part of me is beyond nervous, in fear of them needing to use an epi pen, and the other half of me is so excited to think he may have a chance with these foods! The reason why they decided to take this step is in his allergy march was his blood work results. His blood work came back testing negative to being allergic to eggs and dairy. His “prick” test, was positive. Blood was negative. Crazy kid…. so now we have to get to the bottom of it all. I will keep you all updated as to how it goes, send some positive vibes Owen’s way!
The rest of the day we played outside, took a little break to drop off some delicious egg rolls to my parents house (posting recipe tomorrow), and ended up playing outside for the rest of the night until we couldn’t help but feed our hungry tummies. Brody and Owen both LOVE taking walks, so we end up creeping up and down the block all day long during the nicer months. Brody loves pointing out everything and anything he can tell me about, or ask questions about. And, Owen, just loves to go right along with his big brother. I love days like these. More than ever Dan and I are aching for consistent warm weather, days full of sunshine, and hours spent playing with the kids. Come on Cleveland…. we know you can do it!
Prepping the garden. The boys are currently in love with the movie The Lorax, the one they got from the easter bunny, and are trying to convince me to plant a tree. Right in our tiny 4×4 garden. If you haven’t seen The Lorax yet, and have children, or grandchildren I recommend watching it! A great lesson in the importance of taking care of our Earth. Perfect for Earth Day coming up on April 22nd!
