Oh No!!!

We are a peanut butter family. I love the combo of chocolate and peanut butter and will chose that for dessert whenever I'm given the chance. Lou has a peanut butter sandwich for lunch every day, Squish has them most days. Bear started on it a couple of weeks ago. And then yesterday he had a reaction to it. His face turned red all over and he broke out into hives that were the size of the pad of my thumb.  He's going to get tested Friday morning, I sure hope he isn't allergic to peanuts, we eat so very many peanut products around here!

On a brighter note, he took his first honest to goodness step yesterday too. I had a cookie. He wanted it. He took one good step to get to it. I still didn't give it to him. I'm holding back on the sweets until his first birthday.

Today I coaxed him with a graham cracker and he took four steps in a row! I did let him have the cracker:)  And it was nice because Lou is home today helping me monitor the peanut situation so he got to see it.

I hope it turns out to be a flux reaction and not an allergy.

I really hope that for him and for you guys that it isn't an allergy! Fingers crossed!
