Update from our end of the world

I cannot believe how long it's been since I last posted. I am going to do my best to get you all up-to-date on what's going on down here...will give y'all some bullets. Hopefully after today I can figure out a way to post at least once or twice a week!

* We are remodeling our Master has needed to happen ever since we moved into the house but we finally started the project about three weeks ago. We started it with the goal of having it complete by March 24 at the latest. J is leaving for a quick business trip on the 25th and I did not want to be home with M and dealing with the mess of a remodel. Um, yeah, J is going to Minnesota and I'll be home with a remodel mess. Oh Mom will be here and the weather should be good so we'll spend more time outdoors!

* We've tried a few more foods from M's allergen list. It looks like bananas are SAFE!!! We tried them for about 2 weeks and no reactions! We tried soy this weekend by cooking his turkey burger in soybean oil. Not really sure how it's going. He didn't break out right away but did start itching his cheeks while eating. He also developed a cough after trying that burger...but I think that was the start of a cold. :(

* M started swimming lessons a couple of weeks ago...he goes twice a week. J goes with him on Saturdays and I go on Mondays. I got the better day...only 3 other kids in our class and it's so calm. The teacher is amazing...she goes at the rate of the kids and not what her notes tell her to do.

* We booked our next trip to Belize!! I cannot wait to get back there. My goal is to print out pictures of the people we'll be seeing so M can recognize their faces. He's such a shy boy right now and I want him to have some facial recognition before he gets loved on.

* We got our annual passes to the zoo and to Sea World...when the weather allows we try to get to some place fun at least once a week. M loves riding on the carousels!

More random pictures for you :)
M finally got to eat at Rudy's - yay for turkey! He's been several times but two weekends ago he finally got to eat their food. :)

M on St. Patrick's Day...we ended up at Friday's. I really wanted to go out for fish & chips...after finding out the wait for dinner was 45 minutes we buggered off and ended up eating a very non-traditional St. Paddy's day meal.

M has started smiling for the "camera" (the phone).


  1. M is so adorable! I love his eyes- such a cool color!

    Good luck with your reno- hopefully it finishes up soon!

    1. Thank you :) I love how many colors are in his blue eyes...they are really neat.

  2. That's a lot going on! So glad to hear bananas are safe and that M is doing so well! Love to photo from swimming lessons. Super cute!

    May the work trip for J go smoothly for all involved. And yay for Belize! Can't wait to see photos!

  3. So happy to hear that he is able to eat more foods now with aversions. Wow what an absolute cutie pie :)
