Its my Birthday!

Yay! Happy birthday to me! Its funny because my birthday kind of snuck up on me, much the way it did last year. Last year I was busy with a little newborn, and this year all the birthday planning was going into Bean's bday, not mine. Then, all of the sudden, I was thinking Wow! My birthday is in a few days. I can't think of too much I want...maybe a few hours to scrapbook, hubby to put Beanie down to bed after we go out to dinner tomorrow, my wedding rings sized (I haven't been able to wear them since I was playing around the house with Beans and both rings -- they're not soddered together -- went flying off my finger and onto the floor), a blender. I did get some money from the inlaws and an Old Navy gift card from my mom, so I will be able to buy some new clothes. Woohoo! I still don't have too many that fit properly. Am I really 29 though?


I'm planning on reintroducing dairy to Beans today. We cut out all dairy a few weeks ago when she got a horrible hive-like rash all over her body. I still don't know what caused it...we washed and rewashed her clothes, put Eucerin lotion on her 2x a day, cut out the dairy. I figure the only way to know if it was dairy would be to reintroduce and see what results. The rash really didn't seem to bother her much. I am so hoping its not the dairy because that would be a real pain in the ass. Plus, she loves cheese and yogurt and since cutting them out I've felt like we've really been slacking on quality solids for her. Wish us luck! I will be happy if we can rule out dairy as the culprit to her rash....

  1. Happy Birthday, Kristen!!
    I finally got time to sit down and read your blog...I can relate to the "busy" aspect of your life...ugh.
    Wow, you sound like my friend, Michelle. She, too tries to juggle it all when her and her husband work opposite schedules so they don't have to put their daughter in childcare. They never get to hang out and it drives them both nuts.
    It is good to get an idea of what your life is now that you are a mom and wife. You sound like an amazing, caring wonderful mother - go for #2!!
    Seriously, it sounds like you are trying to do everything right (breastfeeding, homemade babyfood, surrounding her with love and as much patience you can muster :) )-try not to put too much pressure on yourself. Remember who "Kristen" was and incorporate her into the great wife and mom you are now. You deserve all you give your family. Sounds like Glenn is a great husband and father and I am so happy to hear that you are doing well. And Bean (what we call my friend's daughter) seems happy, loved and so freaking adorable...I hope to meet her in person one day.
    I remember from your myspace that you enjoyed martial arts? Do you still practice (? is that the right word?)?
    Thanks for inviting me to read your blog. I am enjoying it.


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I love to hear from you.
