LAst night Grandma sliced up some cantaloupe for us....YUMMY!! Christopher jumped right in, eating a piece as we were all still gathering around the table!! I just let him enjoy his cantaloupe.... but we all kept a watchful eye since cantaloupe isn't a common food in our house (Anna won't eat most melons, so we really don't buy and eat a lot of melon).
Sure enough the little guys chin (where the juice had drippled down) started to break out. I just let him finish it... he LOVES fruit!! And then he started complaining about his mouth hurting so I went for the Benadryl!!! He got a dose and played around with his food and then was a little moody the rest of the evening, probably from the reaction, his mouth, and being sleepy (he didn't have a nap, instead they played with Grandma!!!).
Grandma also purchased a honeydew for us to munch on while we're here. So I"m tempted to let him try it to test out this "melon allergy" theory. And I'm also really curious to get some in Lydia and Anna....what if his allergy is from having a little bit and then not having any for a year or so????
