Way too long!

I can’t believe it’s been over a year since my last post!  That is WAY TOO LONG!  Time to play a little catch up….

October 2015
We had an awesome dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free Halloween party for Squid and some of his allergy  and non-allergy friends.  They had an amazing time (even though Squid REFUSED to wear his Olaf costume).

December 2015
My husband had a surprise back surgery because he woke up one morning and couldn’t feel his foot.  He had drop-foot for weeks and after several doctor visits, we discovered that his L4, L5 vertebrae were practically rubbing each other because of the lack of a disc. He ended up having a L4-S1 spinal fusion while I was 30 weeks pregnant.  Needless to say, if something hit the floor in our house, it stayed there until Squid picked it up for us. Last week my husband was finally able to walk on his heals again.  I know it sounds small but it’s a pretty big deal.

January 2016
We welcomed “Tank” to the world at the end of January.  The ultrasound tech told me that if I made it to my due date, he would be over 9lbs.  Yeah… he was 6lbs, 15oz.  He may have started off tiny, but at 9 months old and 20 lbs, he’s a man baby now.  Big ol’ Tank.

May 2016
Squid celebrated his 3rd birthday with a bike, a bounce house, and a wacky cake.  Delicious!!!

Summer 2016
We felt the call to move from the city to a small town about 2 hours south.  Everything about the experience was God sent.  He made it so easy!  My husband had a job offer before we made it home after the interview.  Our city house sold before it went on the market. Our rent house was the first one we saw.  We attended one church that immediately felt like home.   Bonus: We’re closer to grandparents.  Amazing! Simply amazing how it all came together… but more on that later.

September 2016
Squid started a new “school” at our church.  It’s actually a Mother’s Day Out program but he doesn’t have to know that.  He LOVES school!  He loves learning.  He’s such a people person and he’s fitting in so well.

ALLERGY UPDATE
Squid is down to only dairy and egg allergies with no sensitivities.  He’s been cleared to try shellfish but with everything going on (and his constantly runny nose of allergy season), we’ve decided to wait.  He sees the allergist again in a couple weeks.

We’ve been in some impossible situations where there is no way we should have survived with out a reaction.  Maybe he’s grown out of the contact allergy?  We shall see!

As for Tank, he’s showing no signs of food allergies so far.
