Owen'sMom

What A Difference!

Recommended Posts

Since October Owen has put on about 2lbs and grew 1.5 inches . He has more energy then ever and has no problems walking from and to Jonathan's school (before I always had to carry him most of the way). He sleeps well and through the night and also doesn't take 3-4 hour naps anymore, now they are more 1-2 hours long.

You guys he looks awesome and he feels great as long as we watch his diet and he takes all his meds .

Here is a collage of pictures, the top ones are from tonight and the bottom ones are from this summer when he was on a regular diet and had so many issues. Isn't it great how much he changed, no bloated belly anymore and no ribs sticking out . I'm just amazed at how much better he looks and feels now. Thanks to a gluten and soy free diet.
