Last week Devin went for his 2 year old check up. The doctor was very impressed with his ability to speak in multi-word sentences and his growth. For the first time in 2 years we only need to buy one kind of milk as now Devin can have skim milk! Yay! That is very exciting (to me anyway!)
After his visit we were sent for blood work. Have you ever taken a toddler for a blood draw? Eeee Gawd it was awful! He sat on my lap while Daddy held his arms down. When the phlebotomist stuck the needle in his arm- Devin gave her the DIRTIEST look like "What the hell lady??" And then he proceeded to scream and cry. It was very dramatic and very sad. Until, that is, the prize bucket came out and she let him pick not just one, but two matchbox cars. That cheered him up a bit. Well that plus Mommy and Daddy brought him to Applebee's. Now tell me he isn't like his Daddy?
The result of the blood work came back today. No food allergies!!!! Wait, did I even mention he was getting allergy testing because of a reaction to shrimp that he has had? At any rate, the doctor said that all of his results were absolutely "normal" and that we shouldn't be concerned at all. Apparently, shrimp just doesn't agree with his stomach but he isn't allergic. Well, now we know. The best part? I can give him PEANUT BUTTER now!!!
