family and friends to share special moments with
creative outlets
rain and lush trees
healthy, happy children
a good night's sleep

I can't do chocolate either. It took a long time to figure out that was the problem and I even tried to convince myself it wasn't for a while, but oh, it so is. I've taken on peanut butter as a replacement.

Valarie said...

so sweet! I love the dress. I'm sorry about the food issues. I really, really am.

She is so cute and bright eyed you can tell she will be smart:)

After a few months maybe you can enter things in one at a time starting w/the chocolate.

Kristen said...

She is so beautiful!! Lucky you!!

Maybe she's allergic to dairy, huh? Kind of sounds like it.

Nettie said...

So gorgeous! What a pretty baby you've got there.

Hopefully, it is just dairy and you can have dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate?

Carrie said...

She is absolutely adorable. Sorry about the chocolate. I don't know what I would do. I LOVE chocolate.

Thoroughly Mormon Millie said...

What a beautiful baby! She's worth giving up chocolate for, if just for a while. ;)

Cmommy said...

~~beautiful, gorgeous, adorable~~

Maine Mom said...

What a sweet picture of Sasha!
No chocolate?...how will you survive?!

EmLouisa said...

She is absolutely beautiful, Lei. And the dress is too. Did your mom make that for your first daughter or was that your dress?

sheri said...

Oh, she's just beautiful!!!
And what a bummer about the chocolate.

Kendra was lactose intolerant also. :(

I could eventually eat cheese and yogurt, but not cream or milk.

I found the only cereals I could use were beachnut, the others use a soy lecithin that bothered her just as much. That meant I had to watch the jarred baby food as well, the gerber brands with their cereal in it, OUT!!

Good luck on finding what else. For us it was the lactose and using the mylicon drops, it worked wonders for that little girl.

It should go away at around 11 months of age.

Sorry that was me up above. I don't know why it didn't register my name. :)

Sunny said...

She is so gorgeous ... I can't get over it. She's just beautiful. Sorry about the chocolate ... she'll only be little for a short time though - it's worth it!

She is absolutely adorable. What a beautiful picture. I have that same bedding! I couldn't have chocolate with my babies either. I tried to think of it as helping to get the baby pounds off faster, but I sure did miss it.

What a beautiful baby! And I enjoy reading your thoughts about sweet Sasha -- you are obviously such an incredible mom. I can only imagine the gorgeous scrapbooks your children must have. The 'darling' baby announcements are precious. Congratulations - Stephanie said she had a great time at your baby blessing. I'm glad it all went well. All my love -
