jessiedupree Spending the first day of 2015 taking down Christmas stuff and cleaning like a mad woman. Very excited and ready to move forward into 2015 and all it has to bring us- I feel like this is a great first step towards that! Can't wait to meet my sweet little one in March, get better at my job, learn to lean on The Lord in ways I never have before, and be better to the people in my life. In a nutshell, these are my goals/vision for this year. Now for more cleaning, de-cluttering! Nesting, much? Ha! Happy 2015!! 4w

jessiedupree Almond milk latte with coconut palm sugar paired with dairy/GF cranberry, blueberry, orange scones I made for the little guy! It's a good start to the day. (Yes, I said start, I slept in late after baking all day yesterday!) I'm not a blogger girl, so the picture isn't perfect...as you can see, our car keys and a sour cream bucket in the background . But Merry Christmas anyway, yall!! 1mon

jessiedupree Ever heard of Amy Grant's 1983 Christmas album?....it's the only thing worth listening to each year. Here's a little sample to wet your tastebuds 1mon

jessiedupree I can't tell you how excited I am to have a relaxing holiday week. Rest, eat, rest more, spend time with family/friends, spend time just being at home doing absolutely nothing, rest. Just, yes. We also took the little guy to pick out his toy for Christmas today, and although that was a bit hectic (crazy holiday shoppers) it was still fun! We're never going to make a big deal of the whole present part of Christmas. It's just not us. But it's fun getting to treat him to a little something that we know he will love! Were excited for future Christmases when he and his little bro or sis are old enough for us to tell them what Christmas is all about. What a gift and honor to get to be the ones who share that with him! Anyway! Yay for the start of what will be a wonderful week! 1mon
  •   birdsandbones Love this! I read a blog where a woman said she gets each of her kids 3 gifts because if 3 gifts were enough for the King of Kings they should be enough for her kids. Seems like a good philosophy to me, now if only I could get the grandparents on board... 1mon
  •   jessiedupree @birdsandbones oh that awesome!! I love that! 1mon
  •   monkeyfeathers I want to put lights in my library like this all year. @suburbangirl 1mon
  •   quayface I love this. 1mon
  •   suburbangirl @monkeyfeathers do it! 1mon
  •   oddleahenough Whay ive seen some people do that I love is 3 gifts like what @birdsandbones said, but its something you want, something you need, and something to read. Which I thought was nice! 1mon
  •   jessiedupree @oddleahenough that's cool too! A great idea 1mon
  •   bethanybrookek I think Santa is kind of fun when they are little but want them to know the real reason for Christmas so what I've been saying is that it's Jesus birthday and since he loves everyone so much he lets Santa give everyone presents. I'm kind of dreading the amount of gifts from family, kids don't need too many!!! 1mon

  •   mamamclain88 Well at least I'm not alone in my pregnancy laziness. 1mon
  •   kimagray Hahaha love this 1mon
  •   jessiedupree @mamamclain88 oh it's strong, mama. So strong. 1mon
  •   mamamclain88 I feel way lazier with this baby. I think it's a combination of not working full time plus having a toddler at home to entertain. Bring on the netflix. 1mon
  •   heat87chezza Netflix allows my inner lazy girl to take flight. Some serious binge watching is going down today. Ps: you're growing a person while wrangling a little human energy ball. I think that gives you a free pass to do just about whatever you want. 1mon
  •   tif.pet I'm into that 1mon
  •   c___monayyy You're incredible. I've been complaining every second of my pregnancy. :( 1mon

jessiedupree Wow. I can't even tell you how encouraged and thankful I am by all your responses to my last post about our little boy! Thank you EVERYONE for your suggestions and great resources! Once I recover from this early morning wake-up call (he woke up at 4:30, hungry and wanting momma) I will make a list of these sites, etc and start gathering great recipes and knowledge! I will also get with those that have specific recipes to share. Thanks again, all! I really can't tell you how grateful we are 2mon
  •   kind.of.hilzey @jessiedupree check your DM! 2mon
  •   livwellss sweet little face 2mon
  •   homeland_obscurity In my journeys with alternative milk, coconut seems to be the best. Almond is great if you can do nuts, but I'd avoid soy - even non GMO soy can really mess with your hormones! 2mon
  •   babydo11y My boys have allergies. They have plant powered almond milk now (made by almond breeze) and it actually has a decent amount of protein in it finally. They have chocolate, coconut, etc. Mine prefer vanilla, I'm sure the wolf man will love it ♡ 2mon
  •   jessiedupree @homeland_obscurity yeah...we try not to be soy people. Right now we're doing almond milk and he seems to love it! We'll try coconut next! 2mon
  •   homeland_obscurity Awesome! I've been following a Paleo approach tailored to autoimmune disease - I have learned so much from that community! I think you might like the blog Sweet Potatoes and Social Change. She's a sweet, smart girl. 2mon
  •   map426 My son has been allergic to dairy since he was born after breast milk we went with hemp milk. He loves it and it works to bake and cook 2mon
  •   meganmichelles @jessiedupree i have a great cream resource that is all natural and works like an absolute charm, jessie - mmfabry@gmail.com - had eczema for 20 years and first relief i found that didn't have steroids and when diet couldn't kick it worked :) xoxo 1mon

jessiedupree This week has been a week of healing for our family! First, Kim's successful stent surgery, and now this boy...For the last 6 months, Wolf has had worsening eczema over different parts of his body, including his face. No matter what we did at home, nothing worked. We finally knew it was a gut/food allergy problem and that we couldn't pinpoint it on our own. I can't tell you the pain/worry/stress/guilt/you name it associated with watching your child suffer from something that you can't fix because you don't know why it's happening. Now don't get wrong; I completely know and understand that there are MUCH worse things that he could have been suffering from, and countless people feel all those things I named on levels I can't imagine, but no matter what, when the baby is hurting, the mommy is hurting. Anyway, this Monday, we took him to our wholistic Dr and found out he has a wheat and dairy allergy. We are on day 5 of him being completely free of those things, and I can't explain to you the difference we have already seen. Not only is his sweet face healing already, but he is so HAPPY! I could go on and on with how ecstatic we are, but I'll leave it at this: I prayed for months for answers, weeping at night in bed. And they were answered this week. Not only is he a new boy, but I feel like a new woman! The burden has been lifted from my heart! Anyway, sorry for the novel everybody. But I had to share in my joy and thanks to The Lord for being a God of hope, healing, and answered prayers. . Sidenote: any great wheat/dairy free recipes?? Send them my wayyyyy!!!! 2mon
  •   cranberryjane @ngmeisan my life is already better without them both. #magic 2mon
  •   senorita_marcelita Idk if anyone's suggested it yet, but LUSH dream cream and dream wash are both made to help eczema! 2mon
  •   jamiowlyson Hey, Jessie! David and I check up on you guys now and then. This post brought tears to my eyes. I'm so happy for you all. Wolf is a sweetie and we'll be praying for continued healing. 2mon
  •   jessiedupree @jamiowlyson thank you Jami!!! Weston said he saw David the other day :) thanks for being happy alongside us! 2mon
  •   breee_faith Kris Carr has an amazing book called Crazy Sexy Diet and cookbook Crazy Sexy Kitchen about healthful eating for our bodies with great recipes that are vegan and gluten free. They're delicious! (have you tried some breast milk on his healing eczema? I'm a doula and have had clients tell me it works wonders) 2mon
  •   erinfay So glad to hear that his eczema is clearing up! I'm not sure if you've ever heard of the skincare line Dermalogica, but they have a calming line. And they have a product called Barrier repair. It's a fragrance free, dye free, waterless calming lotion. It's a bit on the expensive side. But it's worked wonders on me when I've gotten eczema flair ups. And an esthetician I know has used it on her son for his eczema and diaper rash, and she's said it's the only thing that helps. I know you've probably tried every lotion out there. So if you're interested in still trying to find something, this is a good one to try! 2mon
  •   heartnsoul @jessiedupree can I ask how y'all have been maintaining his breakouts? My 6 month old has eczema too. We use a cream that takes about 3 days to help heal, and lavender oil everyday, but he breaks out conatantly. I'd love to know what you do. Would you mind emailing me if it's long? Pickles3353@gmail.com thank you and I hope he continues to find healing. You have positive vibes galore coming your way. 2mon
  •   julissadude three week old post but I had to share @dehappy5_mama's daughter has an incredibly moving story being that she has totally overcame eczema with raw foods. there are a million and one opinions out there but you must check out their results i 3w
