All things Noelle

Noelle GAINED ONE POUND!!!!!!!! yes she is now 20lb 14oz. For all that have been praying Thanks you very much.

This new diet is working really well and Noelle is feeling better.

I was able to make "ice cream" for Noelle out of goats milk, raw honey, and strawberry juice. Jon and Zoey both tried it and liked it too. Just wanted to find something special Noelle could have on Wednesday nights at Grandpa "Brownies" house.

Noelle is on a not fun week of her elimination diet. We introduce wheat again. This is what I think has caused all the problems before so we will try again and see if I am right. Will let you know how she does this week.

Noelle is also going in to do some allergy testing at the Allergy Clinic of Tulsa sometime in September. We will do patch testing it sounds very painful so I am praying that it is not as bad as I imagine it to be.

I made their costumes out of thing around the house. White tights that were old and had snags in them. Noelle and Cyann I used old stained onesies and Zoey I used an old sweat shirt. The paint was what I had in the garage. It was fun.
Sorry i did not get any pictures of Cyann. :( She was so cute.

Noelle's New Diet

Noelle's New Diet

Hi all its been a while but we have been very busy.

I wanted to do an update on Noelle.

I noticed about a month ago that she has been losing weight. Not good for a little one to do. She was 22 lb. first of June then middle of July she was 21 lb. now she was weighed on Thursday 19 lb. 12 oz. Needless to say i am worried about her. I have noticed that she has an allergic reaction to a lot of things we have tried to feed her leaving me searching for nutritious things to give her.

I was feeling very lost and honestly scared because I did not know what to do. A friend recommended going to see a Homeopathic doctor to see if he had some insight. So we did he was great but only cut out more things out of her diet. I left his office feeling a little relieved but then after a week of his recommend diet Noelle looked thinner and had a lot less energy than before.

I set up an appointment with a highly recommended Nutritionist. Let me say she was an answer to prayer. She gave me some very practical ways to feed Noelle what she needs and with the fat and calories that she needs.

She also whats to change Noelle's formula to Elecare. It has a higher calorie count than the Nutramigen that Noelle has been on since she was 2 months old.

I am feeling better about Noelle's feeds now. I am praying that with this new approach Noelle will start gaining weight again. Right now she is -15Th on the growth scale. Hoping she will be in the 30Th percentile by November.

Another thing that is a huge answer to prayer is Noelle will be seeing a Respiratory Specialist in the next month or two. I have been worried about her Laryngeal Malatia and the possibility of her having sleep apnea. I finally got someone to listen to me and turns out they think I might be right.

Just so I have it written down somewhere i wont lose it Im going to write Noelle's can haves.

Right now Noelle can eat

All vegetables
Fruit except citrus and tomatoes
Nut butters except peanut butter
Goats milk

Digestive enzyme.

That is it.

Right now Noelle's newest favorite is Banana shake with almond butter. I make it in my new juicer you should try it Jon says its good (and I make it with goats milk).

Life is very full right now thus the lack of posts. So sorry.

I seem to be running in circles and most of the time cant tell you what the date is but I can tell you the many many things that need to be done.

In an attempt to make my life a little more streamline I have spent the last few days ORGANIZING everything but alas still have a little was to go.

Need to still clean the master bedroom and one more closet. Then it will be time to start at the beginning again. Thus the life of a mom. :)

I will write an update on the kids soon. I'm waiting for Jon to put the pictures up for me. Thanks babe. There has been alot going on so it will be a good one I'm sure. So stay tune.
