the teeth have been coming thick and fast! it’s less than a month ago he still only had the bottom 2 and now he has 4 big ones on the top and number 7 is sprouting on the right side on the bottom. amazing! he has been cranky on and off with it all (understandably so…) but i think we’ve been pretty lucky to have so many over and done with so quickly. CHOMP CHOMP CHOMP! :)
so things are generally looking good with the dairy! about 4 hours after eating that entire yogurt, egon broke out in a minor rash on his torso, neck and face, but it was gone the next day. very minor reaction compared to the extreme flare-up which took place when i tried to feed him yogurt at about 5 months. so i’m hopeful he is out-growing the allergy. i am still eating dairy myself and he is having no reaction so far to my milk, so big thumbs up on that count!

love this one :)
in other news - egon now helps me in the mornings by putting the empty milk canisters into my bag. he is frequently showing me that he understands what i ask him to do, which is so exciting! simple things like ‘put the block in the red cup’ etc - makes me wonder how much he does understand what i say! it’s lovely.
his grandma is coming to visit from england in just over a week’s time now! we have plenty of fun activities planned :)
because egon just ate an entire yo baby yogurt - main ingredient whole milk - with no major outbreak (just a few red patches where the yogurt got on his face and i think irritated the skin?) - did he grow out of the allergy? did it ever actually exist?? i don’t care - i can eat mac & cheese again!!!!!!!!!
… well that’s what i just wrote on facebook, but of course only time will tell. i am crossing my fingers SO HARD over here!
egon’s on the mend from his first fever. temperature maxed out at 102, (though mainly hovered around 100) and lasted for 2 days. 2 days of intense sleepiness, off his food, clung to mama like his life depended on it (that was the one cute factor), nursed 24/7 and made the most heart-breaking sad noises. baby with a fever = saddest thing in the world. i stayed home from work with him yesterday and took him to the doctor after he puked, but of course by the time we got there he was giggling and looking a lot more chipper :) after a good afternoon nap and then a great night’s sleep he was much his old self this morning, so off to daycare he went after eating two helpings of breakfast. that’s my boy!
