I Miss Blogging

It has been 4 full months since I've posted here.  I've missed it.

Life got a little crazy with Blue's deployment and managing Marek's allergies but things have slowed down enough now that I'm hoping to start blogging regularly again....

Quick updates on life:

Marek and I attempted to continue BF for 2 months after finding out all of his allergens but got to a point where breast was no longer best for either of us.  Since switching him to hypoallergenic formula we are both much happier people!

We have started introducing him to solids slowly, as of now he can have rice cereal, squash, spinach, sweet potatoes and chicken.  We're hoping to introduce a fruit next.  I'm still too paranoid about corn contamination to buy baby food so I'm still making it all myself (which is super easy and I'll probably just keep doing.)

We had him re-tested for allergies and he is still allergic to 15 of the top 20 allergens, the only one he got back was garlic, at least his food will taste good!

Blue's deployment went smoothly and we're so happy to have him home.  I have the utmost respect for single parents, it is a really hard job!

First snuggles after Daddy got home
 We spent most of October and November in Montgomery Alabama for a military school.  We had a great time touring the south and just enjoying the warm weather!

Baby's First Oysters on Bourbon Street in New Orleans!
Marek is now the proud owner of 2 teeth and likes to use them on anything he can get his mouth around.  On thanksgiving he bit his own arm so hard he left a mark that lasted the entire day...  He sits up on his own and started crawling on the 23rd, turns out he just needed the right motivation and coffee cups and Christmas presents provided it!
He wore these antlers around without complaining for so long!
I'm back at work 2 days a week and Marek stays with his Nana (Blue's mom) one day and his MaMaw (my mom) the other.  Its the best of both worlds and I'm praying I can keep this schedule up for a while!

 I'll update with more pics soon.  I swear all I've done for the last 8 months is take pictures of my little man...


  1. YAY!! So glad for an update. I've really missed your posts and wondered how little Marek was doing, especially with all of the allergies. Love the antler pic, so adorable. Glad you guys had such a great first Christmas together! :) Looking forward to more blogging from you.... I hope? :) I know it can be hard to find time now, especially with you being back to work and all too! All the best for 2013!! xo

  2. Hey lady! I missed you! :-) He is getting big and looks soooo cute! Looking forward to more pics :-) Glad things are going well for you guys!

  3. Missed you! Thanks for the update. I'm finding it dificult to manage parenting a new baby and blogging as well.

  4. I was just thinking about you the other day and I was hoping that everything was going well with you and your family! Good to see you for a quick update :)

  5. Good to have you back.Hope Marek will overcome those allergies.Happy and wealthy 2013:)


  6. I don't know why this just made me so excited, considering I see you and talk to you more than just about anyone else in my life and am clearly not hurting for the updates, but... hooray for being back to blogging!

    user in his/her mind that how a user can be aware of it. Thus
    that's why this piece of writing is perfect. Thanks!
