13 months old!

It seems like just yesterday we were having Micah Claire's 1st birthday party and now she's 13 months old. Where or where is the time going? Well, we finally got our results from our allergy testing. As suspected, she has a severe allergy to eggs. The test showed a .37 wheat allergy, which basically means she can eat wheat with no problems. We also found that she has a slight allergy to peanuts, so that means no peanuts till she's at least 3 years old. There is a very good chance she may out grow this allergy! And the big news... she has a milk allergy. I was stunned to find this out. MC was exclusively breastfeed for 10 1/2 months and then took a little bit of a milk based formula till she was1; all with NO problems. She has had a little bit of a runny nose since she started whole milk. But, I just assumed that was due to the weather change or maybe she had an outdoor allergy. Our doctor said it would be impossible for her to have an outdoor allergy at this age because she hasn't been exposed to three of cycles of ragweed. Well, we started on Soy milk this weekend and I'll be danged if her nose didn't dry up. I tell ya what, I've learned more from having a child than I did getting my undergrad or graduate degree. I think if I had to come up with a slogan for my life it would be........" Kids, they'll teach!"

Here is Micah Claire waiting to go to church in her dress that Mimi bought her.

I asked if I could take her picture and this is the pose I got! Such a HAM

She is always on the go these day!

Not wind, nor thunder, nor rain keeps this child from wanting to be outside. So when mommy had to be the bad guy and take her in, she made her own waterworks show :(

These days M.C thinks it's more fun to throw her toys out of the tub than play with them in the tub. Which of course makes more work for Mommy!
