Day 167

22 04 2010

Here I am eating my first food – well beside cereal.  Mommy and Daddy gave me some bananas.  I was really enjoying it – they tasted real yummy.  I ate quite a few spoonfuls then I felt full.  Daddy noticed a red mark on my forehead.  Then one on my cheek.  They got worried that I was having an allergic reaction.  Mommy took me in my room to put on my pajamas and check me out.  I had hives on my back and belly.  They called Dr. McCarthy to see what she recommended.  She asked if I was fussy or irritable.  I kind of answered that question cause I was in the background laughing and kicking 🙂  She said as long as I didn’t look like I was in distress I should be ok and there was no need to give me anything.  I would be ok in a bit – just keep an eye one me.  They went to the store and got some children’s benadryl just to be safe.  But I had my last bottle of the night at 9:15 and went right to sleep.

Day 117

3 03 2010

Today I had another dr’s appointment.  This time Dr. McCarthy saw me.  She’s the doctor that saw me at the hospital and for my first two doctor’s visits.  She hasn’t seen me in a few months – boy was she surprised by how much I’ve grown and by all that I can do!  She said I sit up really well and that I can start having cereal if mommy wants to try giving it to me.  We just need to wait a few days because I got another vaccine today and she thinks mommy should make sure I don’t have any reactions to that.  So maybe by next week I’ll be trying cereal….stay tuned!
