peanut butter, okay!

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.


  1. Yay!!!! What great news!!!
    we <3 peanut butter in this house, too!
    I have the same baby swing. hahah

  2. how did he do with it sticking to the roof of his mouth? Memphis would always go crazy....sorry I just compared your child to a beagle.

  3. Yay! It is so scary trying to figure out these things. I'm glad it was a success. Peanut butter will make his life better! ha ha.

  4. megan, i love that swing (and the little vibrating seat that matches it)!
    no chris, he seemed to eat it just fine. but yeah, we do like to put peanut butter on lucky's nose, haha.
    jeanie, thanks for your advice!
