Could it be?

After 4 years of being very vigilant about what goes in Little Mans mouth, could he really be outgrowing all his allergies?

We did an oat food trial this weekend, no signs at all of any reactions! I'm going to give it a few more days, but I'm very optimistic. His reactions to oats before hit within a couple of hours, so going days is fantastic!

I plan on trying apricots this weekend and then we'll probably take a break for a week or so after that and try the big guns, soy and then corn. Frankly, I'm quite scared to try soy and corn, so I'll take the other challenges first.

So far he has outgrown his milk allergy, tried eggs for the first time at the age of 3.5 and we've tried fish this past year as well. His food options are getting so big, I may be able to actually cook a meal without reading the ingredients list first. I don't remember when I was able to do that before. I'm giddy :)
