10 weeks

our little bugger is already 10 weeks old. here he is enjoying some tummy time on his play mat.

unfortunately, he's still not the best sleeper and the pediatrician thinks he may be colicy. i'm on a new dairy free diet for 2 weeks to see if he may have a dairy allergy. it's torture. i don't envy anyone who needs to live like this. i LOVE milk. not only that, but dairy is in EVERYTHING. things you wouldn't think have dairy in them, do. it's the hardest thing ever! we went out for the hubby's birthday on friday to our favorite restaurant and i couldn't order a single thing on the menu without having them alter it for me! thank goodness it's only for 2 weeks. if it turns out that he does have an allergy, i will probably be done breast feeding. (which is very disappointing for me) it's just so hard to cook for a family without dairy and i don't especially want to make two separate dinners every night. i have a hard enough time getting one meal on the table.

with all that said, i wouldn't trade him for the world. when he's happy, he's the sweetest baby who smiles and coos non-stop. i love mornings as that seems to be the only time you can count on him being happy for more than 2 minutes.

Sorry to hear about the no dairy. My daughter turned out to be allergic to peanuts, milk, and eggs so I feel the pain of the no dairy. Good luck!
