Rosy Cheek Test

Pictures of the kids coloring. Both of them LOVE to color.

We are all starting to get a little cabin fever. I even opened our bedroom window for a few minutes to let in some fresh air, before I realized it was FREEZING and shut the window. We are still undecided about the whole gluten diet permanence in our home, but I can't help but think we'll do it for at least a few more months. Carson is eating 2 to 3 times as much food as he used to! And Natalie is eating better as well. Mike thinks that Carson is gaining a little weight, too. But to me the real test of this diet is in his cheeks. They are rosy! He's always been really pale looking, but in the last month, he has developed a case of rosy cheeks, and he just looks healthier. So for the time being, we'll be sticking to the diet to see what long term results we have for Carson, Mike, and Natalie, too.

I wish my girls colored together so well!!! My kids actually get rosey cheeks when they are tired. But hey, the healthy thing works too. I'm glad everyone's feeling better.

Your kiddoes are so cute! I love being able to take a sneak peek at them! I kinda feel like a peeping Tina though!! lol! Good job with the GF diet, it is no easy task but so worth it if you all feel better. Have a great week and Valentines Day!
