Little Update

I took a little blog break because I have my hubs all to myself last week and this coming week since his school is giving him a little break before he starts back for the summer session.  Here is a little of what we've been up to:

-Found out that Sullivan officially has a peanut, dairy, feather, and cat allergy. It was shocking (for me) at first.  I expected the dairy allergy but was surprised about the peanut allergy.  The doctor said that there is a 20% chance he could outgrow it since he tolerates almonds without a problem.  I am really hoping this is the case!

-Because of Sullivan's allergy to peanuts and dairy I have to give up those items in my diet because though he is slowing down on nursing, he's still doing it especially before bed and naps.  For me the HARDEST is peanut butter.  I love it so much, like maybe its a slight addiction but I am willing to do anything to help him out.  I wish I would have known sooner.

-Sullivan has been eating so much more food lately.  I am so HAPPY about this.

-The little man and I are going to go visit my family in Arizona on Saturday(yay!).

Here are a few recent pictures I took.  I'll be back to the blog soon I promise.

He was doing the sign for "eat" here.  I love that he does this one.

Dear Mom,

I am thankful for the life you gave me growing up.  We had so much fun!  A surprise trip to Disneyland when Stephen and I thought we were going to Nevada.  Countless trips to Mexico and the beach in California.  There was lots of camping, fishing, dancing, swimming, hiking, chocolate chip making extravaganzas.  Mostly there was a whole lot of love(and laughter) and there still is.  Thank you for being my mom, a true blessing in my life.

I love you.

18 Months Old-(4.23.12)

This post is late (4.23.12 would have been right) but I want it for my own record.

There is a little story about this small hammer.  A few days ago Sully saw me hammer a nail into the wall.  He was hooked immediately.  I found an old piece of wood and let him knock it around while being closely supervised.  Its one of the highlights of his day.  He asks for it by running and pointing to area where I keep it and will say "this" on repeat until I get the hint.

We went to the park today and behind the park is a little forest with a walking path.  This picture was taken before I saw a small snake, from that point on we stayed on the trail.


You were watching a Caterpillar.

Dear Sullivan,
I wondered why there were no other kids at the park until I saw you head straight to the puddles.  My first reaction was to pick you up and go, but then I saw how much fun you were having.  A little dirt? No problem. That's why we do bath time every-night.  

I always take you to these tennis courts to see if anyone left behind a ball or two.  Well, today was our lucky day!  We found one ball and there was more puddles of water.  Your favorite!

You sat in one puddle.

And then you were concerned about another caterpillar.  You see just a few minutes before, we saw one in the woods and I let it crawl up on the stick you were carrying.  That caterpillar made its way on to your hand and right as you started reaching to grab it with your other hand, mama screamed LOUD.  It just happened on accident(I didnt want to see guts).   After mama screamed, you cried and the only thing that cheered you up was seeing a barking dog.  Then as we walked back out of the woods I apologized over and over and told you that caterpillars are nice but that mama is not good with bugs.  I hope you understand.  I love you my big big boy.


ps.  When Papa saw this picture of a caterpillar he told me he thought it was a centipede and that he squished one the other day.  Oops.
