Project 52-16

Thanks to a little tip by Shawna, I realized that all the chocolate eating I was doing (can you say "hormones?") was probably contributing to the Little Miss' tummy troubles. This week I made the small change of eliminating chocolate from my diet. She is a completely different baby! No tummy rumbles, no bad gas, no difficulty pooping! She seems so much more comfortable!

It's a small change (and a DIFFICULT one for mom) but it's one I'm willing to stick with since I already see the results. The Little Miss is 2 months old and she slept 7 hours straight one night and 6 1/2 the next. I love it! And, we get to wake up to those huge smile you see in the picture. How could I not stay committed to this?

That's not to say it's not hard. I know this is kinda lame but I was REALLY craving chocolate yesterday. John's boss is right... I need to focus on how Jesus is better than chocolate and my child is worth it.

So far, so good!

This is my Project 52. To see other people's projects, head over to The Styleberry Blog.

  1. Wow! That's a great solution, and somewhat doable! Maybe some Boston Cream Pie flavored yougurt could satisfy your craving/need. I understand! Or mint choc chip hard candy, or somethin'. Don't need a happy baby with a crabby Momma! :) Adorable happy picture! Love it!
