A very important anniversary!

I realized this week that we hit a major milestone -- Michael has been gf/cf/sf for a whole year now. What a year it's been! He has come so far, and has made tremendous gains in so many areas. I love how connected he is, how he is starting to play games appropriately, and how he is finally asking 'why' questions. We still have a long, long road ahead, but this year it seems much less rocky.

I also wanted to point out that now is the perfect time of year to start the diet. Because Passover is approaching, the Kosher supermarkets are carrying many gluten and casein free foods. I don't understand why, but they are even carrying more soy free foods than normal. It's a great time to stock up! Today, Steve came home with a stash of chocolate chips, various flours, and even a chocolate bar. He said there were some delicious looking cakes that were gf/cf/sf, but way out of our budget. They stayed at the store.

So, if you are thinking about starting the diet, now is a great time to start. There are so many resources to help you, and I love talking about it. If you have any questions or need a cheerleader, just ask me, or leave a comment.
