Merry Christmas

We headed up to Buffalo for Christmas this year. We ended up making it in one day, which was nice that we didn't have to stop at a hotel, but threw of Piper's schedule too. She did very well sleeping at Grandma and Grandpa's house and the pack n play. She has been a little sick with a cold too so maybe that helped her sleep at night. She managed to do three whole nights of sleeping 12 hours straight! We had a nice mellow Christmas up in the cold. Lots of hanging out and eating cookies and good food.

I just tested positive for celiac's disease (gluten intolerance) and so this trip might have been the last time I will get to eat my favorite lo mien and the last apple pancake from original pancake house too. :( I go see a specialist at the end of January to figure out what to do from here.

A couple days at home now before shipping out to Cali...should be a fun trip to see the family and friends too! Here is a couple pictures of Piper and then all the grandkids on Christmas:

We also had a few pictures taken of Piper a couple weeks ago. One of them (the first picture below) we used on our Christmas card. But here are a couple more of our darling daughter:

I absolutely love this close up of her:

This one we thought was too funny...we almost used it on the Christmas card, but couldn't bring ourselves to do it:

Lastly, I had a photo taken of me holding Piper's hand holding the necklace with my moms thumbprint. It is a beautiful photo and I have to share it too...

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with their families and friends.

She is just beautiful!!! I love the "other" photo! Have a safe trip to CA! And what was going on for you to get tested?

I just love Piper's smile. She seems like such a happy baby!

Will you have to take medication in addition to modifying your diet?

Beautiful pics! I too love the one you almost used on the card.

It's an adjustment, but eating gluten free is easier these days. If you feel better, then it's very much worth it.
