We have pictures taken over the weekend for Emrick's first birthday. We took a nice family one and some of the kids together. But mostly they were Emrick and her fancy polka-dot dress! It was really fun and I am so happy to have family pictures with the kids at this age. We really should do family picture more often.
We had a pretty fun Valentine weekend. Bought a bunk bed for the kids. We set up one bed and have the other stored away for when Emrick is old enough to need a bed. Jacob is really excited about his new bed and had a nice night sleeping in it last night.
Sunday is Emrick's birthday party. We are having a really small thing at the play place in McDonald's. We ordered her cake over the weekend. I have no idea why but Burger picked out Strawberry Shortcake! I can't believe she is going to be one whole year old in less than two weeks.
Jacob is doing well. We recently cut dairy completely out of his diet. There has been a noticeable difference in his behavior and his skin! It is harder than I thought it would be to cut out dairy completely. We already did no cheese, no milk, no yogurt. You know, all the very obvious things. But now we are down to if it is made with milk or any sort of milk product it's a no go. He did have some ice cream over the weekend and I'm hoping we won't notice! I thought we would try this for a while just to see if it makes an obvious difference with his eczema. If it does not, then it's back to the drawing board!
