Return from Wheat Exile

Well, I've had a dietary break-thur! Audrey is almost able to handle wheat! That means the slow return of wheat to my diet. Soon I'll be able to eat wonderful white bread and cake and so many other bready thing that I have been missing for the last two months.
Audrey isn't totally able to handle wheat yet. She still gets very gassy but she's able to push it out. I don't think I've ever been so happy to hear a human being fart. But now that she can actually push the gas out, I can start eating wheat again.
I'm adding it back slowly so it won't overwhelm her system but yesterday for the first time in weeks I had gravy! It is amazing how good it tasted! I think it will still be a few weeks before I brave a hamburger on a regular bun but just being able to eat something breaded without worrying that I've just cost myself a night's sleep is good.
Hopefully, she won't develop any other digestive issues. I'm scared about introducing solid foods but at least it will be another three months before I have to worry about that. They say that breast-fed babies don't usually have allergies but since Ray has like 100 of them I'm worried that Audrey will be doomed to boiled chicken and rice. Well that is a worry for another day. For now I will celebrate the ending of my exile!
