Yesterday morning Caleb started asking me for a sandwich. I didn't want to give him the traditional lunchmeat/cheese combo due to the fact that it was 9:30 in the morning. So, I decided to give him a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, his first. This might not seem like a big deal to most people, but with Caleb's asthma and allergies and everything else he has had issues with, his pulmonologist told us to put off the peanut butter until at least age 3. We have been so used to excluding all products with nuts in it that I think we could have put off the introduction of peanuts and all the peanut products for many more years, but a couple of weeks ago Caleb found a bag of peanut butter M&M's that were on the kitchen counter and ate some. We found out that afternoon that he is not allergic and have been slowly incorporating the food into his diet. He seems to really like it and loved the sandwich yesterday!

Yum! Glad Caleb is doing better, and horray for peanut butter. So sorry to hear about your grandparents. Hope things have smoothed over and that the nursing home stuff got worked out.

Good luck with your appointment today.
