*June* check-in?

Well, anyway, the basic summer plan is to have a baby in my arms in 5 weeks... I hope, lol. Watch me go way over the date again (Rebecca was 11 days late)! Other than that... survival with an 18/19 month old and newborn seems to be a pretty good plan.

Kinda looking for suggestions on protein ideas for Rebecca... she's flat out refusing just about everything with eggs in it, let alone eggs plain, she seems to get a miserable diaper rash if she gets too much dairy, she reacts to soy/legumes, is mostly refusing chicken/turkey, won't eat any fish I've offered yet, and won't eat beef... so I'm kinda having issues, LOL.

Yeah the June check in confused me a little also In a few weeks we have my sister's highschool graduation which will mean a lot of family and allergen foods around. Fortunately one of my cousins also has a little girl (she's 5 I think ) who has a few very serious food allergies so most of our extended family is quite careful about food around her and Will which is nice.

At the end of June we'll be finding out what we're having (boy or girl) and then another big family gathering to celebrate my Grandpa's 80th birthday (and unfortunately that side of the family is not as careful about the whole food allergy thing)

Will she (or can she) eat Sunbutter? My boys both really like it (it is manufactured in peanut/tree nut free facility). It is made from ground sunflowers and has about the consistency and color of peanut butter and also has the same fats and proteins pb does. My boys both really like it and they have sunbutter and jelly sandwiches often.

June huh? Danny is supposed to go in to his allergist again on the 19th as long as his cough clears up by Thursday...if it doesn't he goes in Friday. He will start to do at home food challenges for milk....I think it is first...to try to start reintroducing foods since the allergist hopes that since Danny couldn't break down fats or protiens that the allergy will have resolved...

If I was going to be really strict about the no-soy, then I probably wouldn't give it to her (every one I've found in our area thus far has a 'may contain soy' warning), but I'm at the point that I HAVE to feed her something. However, she doesn't prefer sunbutter. Usually to get her to eat a slice of bread or a sandwich with it it takes giving it to her at lunch, snack, snack, and supper, LOL.

I made some pumpkin butter (green pumpkin seeds pureed and mixed with some olive oil) and she'll eat that, but I'm not sure I want her only protein source other than cheese/yogurt to be pumpkin seeds, because I've discovered the more I feed her of any one thing, the more likely she seems to be to develop rashes and such from them, so I try to keep a good rotation going. Any other seeds I could/should try? She'll eat pumpkin seeds plain and whole, so probably most seeds don't need to be made into a butter form, but I can do that anyway.

I was thrown by the "June", too. I thought somehow an old, old thread was bumped up.

We've got nothing much going on. Luc will have his annual allergist visit soon, as soon as I make the appointment. I don't have much hope that his multiple food allergies have lessened.

lol....I was thinking bout vacation in June. Got a little carried away

My crew is doing pretty good. It seems that Tobys allergies may be starting to lessen just a tiny bit. It would be so nice to see him grow out of some! This is a crazy busy time of year for us..busy at work, lots of family stuff, and we live on the lake, so lots of lake season outings/bbqs etc going on too. Congrats to you mamas with new LOs coming! We want pictures when they are here!!!!
