Update on Colin

he is now over 13# and he broke the 10th %ile!!! (he was born at the 90th!) looks like he probably has about 4# plus normal growth to go, BUT this week he doubled his weight gain from 0.5 oz/day to 1oz per day! GO COLIN!!!

In a realted topic, his allergy testing finally came back! he is HIGHLY allergic to dairy, nuts and wheat. dairy is done, nuts are easy, but wheat is a toughie... we'll figure it out tho. there is a great heath food store near me and I am sure they can point me to some good substitutes.

Todd actually got the results when he called the dr b/c we have reason to suspect Andy may be diabetic. she gave him an order for b/w and hopefully we'll have some answers there soon.

Ryan is doing great!very healthy! he starts karate on Friday and he got a fantastic report card! he is ready for kindergarten NOW! Andy's was fantastic too!

My diaper Biz is doing good. Click on my new logo in the sidebar to visit my store. I restock thursdays at noon.


  1. They do have great substitutes for wheat. They thought one of my grandsons had a wheat issue (wrong) so we did a lot of health food investigation. The non wheat things are very expensive in the healthfood stores. Check the internet; Stop & Shop has a list of gluten free foods which is really helpful.

  2. I had a wheat allergy as a child. It's tough, but doable. I remember eating sandwiches on rye bread. Allergy shots for me were effective and these days I can eat all the wheat I want.

    This is all personal experience, not from the standpoint of a doctor -- After all, I'm just a cardiologist :)

    Oh, and have you tried soy yogurt? It's a great source of calcium, especially the WholeSoy and Silk brands.
