I need help...
No! Not that kind of help....although some may disagree ;)
I need help with two things:
(1) Does anyone have recommendations for wedding dress shopping in Atlanta? My friend here in Birmingham recently got engaged - yay!!! We spent all weekend with her mom shopping around here, but we struck out. Any suggestions are welcome for our upcoming trip!!
(2) Knox's first birthday is quickly approaching (yikes!!!!); and with our newfound knowledge regarding his peanut allergy, I've learned that I can't buy baked goods from stores. Any place that cooks with nuts is off limits for his diet - this now includes Chick-Fil-A since they fry everything in peanut oil. (Have I mentioned how much I HATE this allergy business?!) So, I'm looking for a really tasty, nut free, allergy friendly birthday cake recipe. Anyone have ideas??
On the same note as the birthday cake thing...I guess I really do have a third thing I need help with: I have become obsessed with reading about allergies, toddler diets, etc. It is NOT helping things. It just increases my fear of what could happen to Knox and causes me to be ultra-overprotective and a psychotic mother (see cartoon above). Please pray for us - that I will not live in fear, that we will be patient as we explore this new diet, and that we will boldly believe that God CAN heal this allergy later in his life.
And just to persuade you for prayers...look at this little face:
How could you not pray for him?! :)
