Family Verses

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you," declares the Lord, "and will bring you back from captivity."
-Jeremiah 29:11-14

Eating Banana!

She was quite moody this day until we found a cold banana in the fridge! It made her happy... at least for a little while! :) I think the funniest thing is how huge the banana is!!!

We Waiting!

Roomies!!! I just had to post this darling picture of the kids! They have been sharing a bedroom for about a month now. We finally kicked Abby out of our room. :) It couldn't have been an easier transition! My mom helped me rearrange their room last week, so it didn't look like wall to wall furniture. The next morning this was what we found! I think they like it, don't you?

Update on Caleb's Diet

Well, it was been 4 weeks today since we started Caleb's Elimination Diet! 4 very exhausting weeks at times!!! It was initially a huge struggle for Caleb to even think about trying some of the foods we were giving him like... carrots, sweet potatoes, broccoli. In time, he has learned to eat all of them (except for sweet potatoes which boggles my mind because I love sweet potatoes!). In week 3 we decided to go ahead with a blood test to test for the most common food and environmental allergies since we had not seen major improvement in his skin. Today we found out the results of that blood test and it turns out he is NOT allergic to any of the common items. Praise God for that! We are very thankful with the results, but still don't know why his skin is like this and how can we make it better.

So... we are being referred to a dermatologist to see what they think. I don't have an appointment yet. For now, we are excited to let Caleb eat some of his old foods, and yet continue the great new habits he has learned in this process! Even though this process with Caleb has been sooo hard, I'm grateful to God that He's leading us through this because it has already proven positive results in all of us!

Stay tuned...
