Random Happenings Around Here

Lots of things have been happening around here. First there’s this:

new baby

Then there’s the celiac diagnosis we received on our third daughter, A. What this means is that between a family of six (yikes!) we have five diagnosed asthmatics and allergies to the following (in no specific order): eggs, dairy, gluten, corn, peanut, almond, grapes, soy, pecan, cauliflower, and shellfish.

Yes, I’m serious.

No, really.

So between trying to get all gluten products out of little A.’s diet (which has been thus far a 6 month laborious and still not complete project) and growing the newest addition to our family I’ve had neither the inclination nor the time to write. That’s not wholly true, as I’ve had lots of conversations in my head in the middle of the night for blog posts, I just haven’t had the inclination to actually get to the computer and start typing. Or editing.

So now for a few things on my mind:

1. Zoinks! I now have four children age 8 and under. It is supremely awesome and at the same time leaves me feeling like I have ADHD. The ability to concentrate has left my body and I can only hope that at some point it will come back.

2. Changing a boy’s diaper is wayyyyyyy different than changing a girl’s diaper. And much harder.

3. Not being pregnant anymore is great!
