Morning blogging....

I think about blogging a lot--When I wake up early and have several minutes to myself. When Kade takes a nap. When he's nursing. After he goes to bed--but I rarely do it.

He has decided to be lazy and sleep in this morning, so I grabbed a cup of coffee and decided to blog in my free time, even though I don't have anything very interesting to blog about.

This week has been wonderful for me (not as good for my weight or health) because I think Kade has gotten over been healed of his dairy allergy. In January, the pediatrician diagnosed him with a milk protein allergy and told me if I wanted to continue breastfeeding, I needed to cut all dairy from my diet. I did, though not without whining at times, and the symptoms he was having disappeared. A couple of weeks ago, I decided to be bad mommy and had a little bit of ranch dressing on a salad. Next day, a couple bites of a chocolate cake I had made. Over the next several days, I had a little bit of this and that dairy and nothing happened. Last Saturday, I really did it. I made a homemade chocolate pie and Michael and I ate the whole thing between Saturday and Sunday. Kade hasn't had any symptoms whatsoever! I was simply amazed and then I said to Michael, "Well, we did pray for him to be healed, so....."

So, this week (and it's only Wednesday!) I have indulged. First, the chocolate pie, then some peanut butter chocolate chip oatmeal cookies I made for our mommy's group yesterday, coffee with creamer, a couple bites of ice cream. Luckily, it hasn't affected my weight much, yet, but I'm going to have to slow down. The no dairy diet, though terrible, allowed me to lose all my pregnancy weight, plus some. If you're looking for a diet, it's definitely the way to go--and healthy (if you don't eat as many Oreos as I did).

I ordered myself an early birthday present last night (my birthay is in a month). After going back and forth about it, I decided to get a Keurig coffee maker, mostly because I found an awesome deal on one on ebay. When I say awesome deal, I mean $100 less than retail. I'm all about good deals, especially since staying at home. Plus, I am terrible at making coffee. I'm so terrible that I ask my poor husband to make it for me when he gets up to go to work. It seems so simple. Two tablespoons of coffee per 6 oz. cup of water. I just can't do it, though. What I like about the Keurig (from what I've seen) is that you just stick the little K cup in the machine and it does everything else. Plus, they come in all kinds of flavors and varieties and you can also get tea and hot chocolate (Sorry, I'm getting carried away. By the way, this is a personal review, for which I am not being paid or reimbursed by Keurig).

So, like I said, not much interesting to say today, but at least I blogged and exercised my writing skills. Looks like a beautiful day, here. Can't wait to get out and enjoy it!
