Happy Fourth of July!



4th of July 2009


Things are off to a whiny, food-filled, Elmo-watching start here at our house.

We can’t wait to see how Joseph responds to fireworks tonight!


Last year, I ran the car into the garage

Joseph was just a harmless, chubby baby

and we found out that he was allergic to Penicillin – in a big way.

Who knows what this year will hold?

Wish us luck….

He WAS chubby! Poor little guy with that penicillin reaction...

T Rex Mom said...

I totally remember that! Hope this year you fare better.

Love his patriotic colors!

I wish you a much better year!! Poor Joseph to have such a reaction. That must have been scary.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who has accidents in the garage!!!

And the penicillin reaction looks horrific!! ICK!

Oh how we laughed! (Almost cried, but mostly laughed). I am still laughing as I am writing this. Hope your fourth was not as eventful but still fun.

Tell Joseph that we can form a club - the oddly splotchy people. (I break out in the same way from penicillin.)

I have a similar reaction to some soaps as well (some ingredient that I haven't tracked down, but some of the milder ones like Ivory seem to be the worst) that only came to the fore when I hit puberty. So you might want to keep that in mind if he starts itching after baths and showers in his early teens and/or gets rashes just where his laundered clothing touches.

Now that would freak me out!
