Caroline's crazy week!
This has been quite a week for our sweet Caroline! To start off, on Monday morning at the park I noticed that she was drooling a lot more than usual, and she also REALLY wanted something to chew on, but her toy had fallen in the sand...so...I gave her my finger and noticed that lo and behold, she had cut her first tooth! The drooling continued and she cut another one on Wednesday. So now she has both front bottom teeth. They are still really little, but if you zoom WAY in on the picture above, you can barely see two little glimmers of white. So she has been a little fussier this week, and wanting a few extra snuggles, but who can resist that sweet face?!
Caroline's other news this week is that we went to see the allergist. Our appointment wasn't supposed to be for another two weeks, but I called Tuesday to see if they had any cancellations and they asked if we could be there at 7:45 the next morning...I said, yes! So we woke the girls up early Wednesday morning and headed into Columbia. The allergist doctor was so nice and made me feel better when he said that he had a little daughter named Caroline too! Anyway, baby Caroline did SO well for the allergy testing (7 pricks on the back - 2 controls and 5 tests) and didn't fuss at all. She just laid on my chest and snuggled. They tested her for allergies to the top 5 food allergens (wheat, milk, eggs, peanuts, and soy) and she showed up as having allergies to milk, eggs, and peanuts. But not wheat, so that was good! All that to say, I am having fun experimenting with lots of new foods and recipes...for me right now, and for Caroline later. We did find out that 80% of children outgrow the milk and egg allergies, and 20% outgrow the peanut allergy. Only time will tell for that though!
So that was our sweet baby girl's crazy week! She actually took the allergy news extremely well and didn't even fuss when I told her she may never get to have ice cream ;) Actually, I do have a coconut milk ice cream recipe to try out this week...we'll see how it goes!
