goodbye, dear friend...

i received some sad news on friday... apparently caleb is (most likely) going through a lactose intolerant phase right now. it seems to be upsetting his intestines and causing him to spit up more than usual, have blood in his stools, and not sleep well. so, i need to cut out any dairy from my diet, at least for a while. the plan is to cut it out totally for a couple of weeks to see if that makes a difference. then, i can try to slowly reintroduce it to find out how much he can handle. it's been 2.5 days now and its a lot harder than a thought it would be. i love my milk, instant breakfasts, cheese sticks, pizza, hot chocolate, starbucks, and ice cream... especially ice cream. it does seem to be making a difference, though, and for that i'm thankful. but does anyone have any good suggestions of what i can eat that is still good???

I think you can buy ice cream made with rice milk (rice cream ;)?). It may be in the health food section. Or you could make your own rice cream. But I can't help you with that. Maybe Martha Stewart or Betty Crocker can, though!
