yes, folks, that's right she's allergic to it. what? crazy. this is her first time having antibiotics so this is our first opportunity to find something like this out.
ethan had strep throat when he was 13 months old, his first big illness (my kids tend to go in for big ones when they get sick for the first time huh?) and he got amoxicillin and he was completed covered in a raised red rash all over his body!
awesome. so now we are thinking we need to get them ID bracelets with a medi-alert on the backs of them because they have different allergies and it might be hard for grandparents etc. to remember these things....still in the works.
i'm not allergic to anything that i know of, kendall is allergic to molds etc. so somehow i think that carries over with the penicillin family anyway, in my mind. who knows! an allergist we talked to (when ethan had his reaction) said that he would probably grow out of it, but (how do you know?) because everytime you give the medicine, as long as they are still allergic, the reaction will get progressively worse and worse...i don't want to subject them to that and just have an epi-pen ready (mariley, i need to take notes from you how to use one, just in case) SCARY! anyway....so that's what's new with us.
otherwise avery is beginning to voice a lot more things and that makes me very happy and ethan is hilarious and will quote entire scenes from Kung Fu Panda for us, really amazing memory but he totally fits in with all our movie quoting mania we have in our family!
