Recently Daisy has been gradually able to reduce the number of allergens that she has. Obviously this is really exciting but it also leads to lots of tension at home. While Daisy isn’t trialling foods she has FPIES to and instead is trialling her less severe allergies, it is really worrying still. Still, recently she’s passed Xanthan Gum and now it seems like she may pass coconut too – which is very exciting. This means that Daisy can have lots of new foods – including a gingerbread man! At least now I can choose whether to make homemade gingerbread or not. This weeks living arrows 3/52 post is now live!

Living Arrows 3/52 - Daisy eats a gingerbread man

As you can see Daisy was a little bit suspicious but was happy to try a gingerbread man! She was telling the people in the shop that she was going to have a gingerbread man and she was going to bite his head off!

The week has been a tad stressful, as Daisy’s behaviour hasn’t been 100%. It’s hard to tell if this is because of the coconut making her tummy sore, as she may be intolerant, or something else. Daisy is at the age where she is pushing back on everything, including bedtime, and I’m having to work hard to stay patient! Very hard! Still – we are heading off on a family holiday today for the week so we’ll have lots of time to bond together and relax. I’m really looking forward to swimming, enjoying a nice hot tub and having a whole week off work. I think a week to spend time together, bond and enjoy each other’s company will do us all the world of good!

For those who commented last week – we’ve had good news back about Daisy’s diabetes test – it was clear! 

If you enjoyed this Living Arrows 3/52 post you may enjoy looking back at our first full year of Living Arrows in 2017. You can also look back at the same week last year, Living Arrows 3/53 – if you fancy a look at how much Daisy has changed in the past year!

    Hopefully it is not the coconut making her tummy sore. Glad to see she is kicking some of these allergies into touch xxx

    She looks so pleased with the gingerbread man though! Glad she is able to trial some foods. There is nothing worse than having allergies and having to say no.

    Oh her face is just the cutest! I’m so pleased that she’s gradually able to have more in her diet – allergens must make things so, so difficult x

    Oh I am glad her test was clear that’s great news! I also hope that you have enjoyed your week away and that the allergies are still going well. Biting the gingerbread mans head off is something Kipper would do!!
