Happy Birthday Pilot

Life has been more than hectic lately. OB appts, birthday parties, and family events have kept me busy and not thinking much. 

Last Thursday, Pilot turned three. He is so excited that he's getting to be such a big boy. 

On Saturday, we had a birthday party for him. Sadly, I don't have one photograph of the event. Pilot got lots of airplanes and books. A big hit was from his buddy who got him Disney's Peter Pan. We didn't have that in our collection and surprisingly my husband had never seen the film. In the space of two days I think it was played four times. My husband realized that the Star Trek VI movie references Peter Pan at the end where their destination is, "Second star to the right and straight on til morning."

On Sunday, I started a new aspect of my diet. I'm cutting dairy as well as grains. I've never tried it before, but after listening to The Gluten Summit all last week I learned that dairy protein can look similar to wheat in it's structure and you can end up with allergenic symptoms even though you are not consuming wheat. I had my last bit of wheat over a month ago at a baptism/birthday party and I'm still sneezing. The cutting of dairy seems to be helping. My sinuses are not as congested and I only sneezed four times yesterday rather than twenty (when I eat wheat, I can be sneezing over 100 times a day. I counted.). It's going to make Thanksgiving and Christmas interesting. I may have to bring a container of food to some of the parties just so I can have something to eat. 

Time is flying. Next week is Thanksgiving. Then begins Advent, my birthday and our fourth anniversary. Christmas will be here before we know it and then the baby will be born at the end of January. Here's to hoping I won't take so long posting again.
