Today we took Brooks to the allergy doctor to finally see if he is allergic to peanuts after a 3 year ban. First of all, the Doctor was incredible. He told us his background and that he picked his field because of his interest in it. You could tell that he is real passionate about his work and we can't say enough about him. So Brooks was a trooper. No sweat. They skin tested his back and he did so great. We were so happy with the results......NO PEANUT ALLERGY!!!!! It really is a big deal to try and shelter a child from peanut products. Anyway, on the way home he said, "give me some peanuts!" He didn't even know what they tasted like, he just knew he could now have something he had previously been told that he couldn't. So we stopped at Wal-mart and I got reese's peanut butter cups and reese's pieces. I got both because I wasn't sure which one he would like. You will see below the picture of him eating the peanut butter cup in the car. He did end up preferring the resee's pieces. We told Jax, after we picked him up from school, and it was so cute, he was so happy. Jax really has been his protector all this time. So below are a few pics from the day.
