Melissa - Mommy to Sebastian, born 9/28/07 @ 7 lbs 7 oz and 20.75 in. At docs at 12 months: 27 pounds and 32 in! Good grief! GERD - currently on Prevacid suspension (liquid equivalent of 45 mg a day). Allergic to dairy, soy, eggs, wheat, all treenuts, peanuts, fish, shellfish, peas, sesame, bananas, barley, coconut, dust, dust mite, dog, cat, latex. Seasonal allergies. Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS). Neocate only - no solids - until further notice (drinks and loves water, too). Loves his doggie, our rescued Treeing Walker Coonhound, Louise, even though he is allergic to her. Louise will make your doctor a homemade pie if you would like her to. PHOTO: We couldn't do a cake on Sebastian's birthday, but that didn't stop him from tossing around the contents of a big bowl of popcorn! He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(
Happy Birthday to me - OT. REALLY OT.
That's right, folks. I am 31 today, and Sebastian is refusing to let me enjoy it. Cried through this breakfast, cried through his bottoel, SCREAMED through this diaper change, SCREAMED through his nap - although he laughed every time I came in and tried to play. This is like Mother's Day allove ragain (you may recall that that is the day that Sebastian climbed out of his Amby hammock and fell on the floor...and also the day that the A/C unit my FIL improperly installed fell out of my bedroom window on to the deck below, almost flattening my beloved dog.

Anyway, I really have no point in writing this other than 1) I am trolling for "Happy birthday!"s and 2) I needed a second to vent because I just need a brrrrrreeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaakkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk. Thanks for reading!

Now, why do you need a break again? I'm not sure you were clear before.

I wish I could make great big letters---HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Thanks everyone! I appreciate it!! Update: I just made my own birthday cake, but then my husband came home with ice cream, carrot cake (with eggs, but he tried), TWO flower bouquets, and candles! When Sebastian wakes up (he actually did take his secondnap), we are going to the mall so I can pick out some shirts from Forever 21. Yay! I feel special again.

Mom (Danie) to Adam (9-4-03) & Nate (3-7-07) Nate was diagnosed with silent AR at 2 months old. He was on neocate, prevacid 30mg per day and couldn't start solids till he was almost 8 months old. He started cow's milk at 14 months and is currently off all meds!! So far so good :) PIC: Disney trip 2008. Nate didn't know Piglet was there, he didn't like the characters too much.
Happy Birthday girl!!!!
