allergy update

Well it looks like little G has several things we are going to keep an eye on:

First and foremost he is testing positively for peanut allergy. How severe, we wont know until he eats peanuts again, but that wont be until he is at least 3-4 yrs old. Until then we avoid it like the plague, along with eggs and possibly wheat.

He also has a chronic sinus infection, that darn runny nose just wont go he's on meds to zap that and then we should start seeing the hives go away. The peanut reaction would last a few hours not weeks so we are blaming the chronic hives on his viral/bacterial infection. Ears are clear thank goodness, and these meds will fend off any impending infection there!

On a good note, these are all manageable ailments and he is happy and VERY rambunctious. He also is 19 lbs and 29 1/2 inches long - that puts him 50th% for weight and 95th% for height. His latest favorite pastime is clapping! ;0) SO cute.
