Evan loves food just like his Mama and Daddy. For the most part he's pretty adventurous with what he will eat, and our doctor gave us no restrictions for his diet so it's really great. As you read in my previous post, I love Peanut-butter and Jelly sandwiches as does Travis. So we wanted to share this love with little Ev. He was probably right around a year when he took his first bites of this delicious creation. After he ate about 1/2 the sandwich I noticed a little rash by his mouth. He sure didn't seem bothered by it though so he finished and we played with our friend monkey. About a month later we tried it again and immediately after eating a few bites, I saw this:

Panick...is that an allergic reaction? I immediately took the sandwich away and gave him something else. Evan just looked at me like "Yo Ma, What's Up?". You would never have known anything was wrong.

I brought these pictures in to show the doctor and he said it was just a food rash. But even though it was just a rash it still is an allergic reaction. We did a RAST blood test specifically for peanut and his results came back with a very small allergy. So no peanuts or nuts for Evan till after he's two and we do even more allergy tests. The doc thinks he'll grow out of it and pray he does.


  1. Oh, bummer. Hope your sweetie grows out of it. Love that first pic! ;)

  2. Poor sweet boy. But look at that long beautiful hair. I love it!
