malcolm is 14 months old now, and i figured it was time to introduce him to this little thing i love, called peanut butter! i've been a bit worried and cautious about giving him anything containing peanuts, because i was afraid he'd have an allergic reaction. so far, he has shown no food allergies (or any other allergic reactions), but danny's mother is severely allergic to peanuts, and i guess it can be hereditary. i ate peanuts all throughout my pregnancy and while i nursed him, so i figured it would be fine. but better safe than sorry, right?
last night he had his first english muffin with peanut butter (a favorite around here, alanna eats them a lot), and he seemed to really enjoy it! as of today, he is fine. no rash or hives, or weird reaction. yay! bring on the pb & j's!
he also loves drinking out of a straw. this photo made me laugh.
