Weekend Reading: August 20, 2011

sid & momma

It’s hard to believe we’re already counting down the days until our Baby Girl’s 2nd birthday. Two is my absolute favorite stage, and we’re already entering that inquisitive, always-learning-something-new, chattering-nonstop stage with her, so I’m not really sad about it, but it is a little bittersweet since she is the baby.

As much as I love her, the past two years have been anything but easy as we’ve dealt with colic, reflux, food intolerances and more, and this past week we started her on a GFCF/soy-free diet. I’ll be sharing more about what that looks like for our family (because, honestly, I was petrified ahead of time, but it hasn’t been as hard as I expected!). While I don’t want her to have to live GFCF/soy-free, figuring out the cause of some of her issues would be a huge answer to prayer, so we’re hoping it will be obvious whether it’s making a difference or not!

If you haven’t already, be sure to check out this week’s Grateful Giveaways as we celebrate back to school, with prize packages from HP, iHome, Shout + more!
