don't ask-

because i don't have an answer.
possible explanations include:
-yesterday we went up in green valley where we weeded and pruned a whole lot of ginger. of course ivy tasted the local flora, and did who-knows-what while uncle benny was "babysitting." i guess there is a reason he said he didn't charge for his services.
-sudden food allergy
-she wants to be a cheetah
-she is jealous that she only wears one-pieces and wanted some color on her torso like her sister
obviously, she is not too bothered by it though. oh how love this tough little girl.
the dr says it is an allergies thing and not to feed her whole wheats, eggs, nuts, or something else that i can't remember. problem: what do i feed her? as you can see, she is not one for going hungry. so i guess she gets to keep slurping down the benydryl- which she laughs when she sees because she is so excited, and hope it goes away soon.

Aww, poor baby but she does look like it isn't bothering her in the least. She is a little trooper. There are a lot of products on the market for those with wheat allergies. I've heard the taste isn't great but it might be something to look into. Good luck!

Well, I guess if it isn't bothering her, then no big deal, but man that looks bad!

Just adding some more advice, from a co-worker with a baby. He said that recently his almost one-year-old daughter suddenly developed an allergy to milk and a minor one to egg products. You might check into that as well. :o)
