Well Jake is almost 2yrs old and he has still done very well without reflux meds, we still have skin allergy issues. I have no clue what is making it flare up, I have tried various soaps for his clothing and he usually uses yes to baby carrots for bathtime. So if anyone can help me out with that I would appreciate it! We use Tide Free and Gentle powder on his laundry. Sad to admit I can barely remember him being small and newborn ish because we slept so little back then, I just remember a lot of crying and vomiting(baby). He only goes to his chiropractor now as needed and its been a few months since he has gone. I think I should take him back out for another adjustment, that seemed to help us a lot when he was smaller, it did wonders for his reflux and sleep. He hardly ever gets sick in general which is nice. His sleep habits are crazy lately but he has had a word explosion, he went from hardly talking to talking a lot! He comes out with a new word everyday it seems like. He does some two word sentences now. I still have his reflux meds on hand just in case and I am still cautious with sauces like pizza and pasta sauce. I guess eventually I will get beyond that but its hard even now. He eats pretty much everything in sight, he really is a good toddler for the most part, aside from the biting.. I hate this phase!

We are now reflux med free completely, on cow's milk and growing like a big boy! Jake is now 15months old today and is 27lbs 8oz and 33.5" long. He has grown so much over the past year and it just amazes me all the things he can do now. He is a very independent boy but loves his mama. He walks, runs, walks backwards and says a few words. He is a pretty quiet boy and pretty laid back as well. I feel like I have no clue what to write in this thing I just tend to find time and babble on once in awhile. HAHA..

We are looking into buying our first home and I have been into sewing some projects, I made Jake a couple of blankets and I need to make him curtains to match for his new nursery theme, Pirates! I LOVE pirates and I am hoping he will grow to love them as well! So many new things going on with my life and I cannot wait to hopefully get our own home and paint and decorate and make it my own. We currently live in a home owned by my mom even though she does not live here with us. Its maddening to not have a home of my own that I can just do as I want and not have to worry what someone else will think, do or say.  Well I guess that is all I can think of for now.
