Carsten's ABC's

video

Carsten wanted me to video him singing his ABC's because he then likes to watch it over and over and over and over and over...
So, here he is singing the ABC's with his little lisp and a cold.

Trying to figure this out...

I am trying to figure out a feeling for how things are going with Reese and his celiac disease. I posted before about the treatments we have been doing with NAET... we are just about done with those and this last week our doctor cleared Reese to eat wheat for three months! I feel weird about this. I am totally excited that he can now eat wheat and he is equally excited--the first thing he wanted was homemade chocolate chip cookies. So far he has felt fine after eating wheat.



I guess I need to just reprogram so to speak and go back to cooking *normally* and turn off my high alert mommy meter when feeding Reese ("Does that have wheat???"). Do I just forget how to cook without gluten, toss recipes, save the rice flour for???







Our doctor has said that she isn't sure this a cure for his celiac disease, but that it should help with any symptoms and we'll know for sure in three months when we have another blood test to see if the celiac disease still exists...
It has been a odd couple of days to say the least--emotions have been euphoric, worried, hesitant, hopeful, glad, thankful...).

Our weekend so far...

Reese this morning eating breakfast in full disguise...


Today we went to a place where they are building a carousel here in town. There are five finished animals that the kids can sit on and you can walk all around and watch 25 other animals being carved and another 20 or so being painted. All the people there are just volunteering their time. It will be another 5 years before they have the animals and the carousel finished and a new building built for it... can't wait! Really amazing stuff...

Reese's favorite was the dragon.

Carsten liked the honey bear.

Carsten tonight in daddy's hat--backwards!
