And The Results Are....

I took Hannah to the dermatologist today and it looks like most of you were is some kind of allergic reaction. The problem is, I don't know what she is allergic to. I haven't been giving her anything different recently. Her appetite seems to be changing a bit, though. She doesn't eat very much anymore. Here are the things that she loves: any kind of fruit (grapes probably being her absolute favorite food), cheese, yogurt, salami, olives, chocolate and other candy, and occasionally crackers. She seems to like hot dogs, too. Other than that, she usually just takes small bites of anything else and will finish it if she's in the mood. She used to love any type of pasta but today I tried giving her spaghetti and she took two bites and said she was done. I don't know what's up with that.

I haven't changed our detergent either. I use Dreft for her clothes because it doesn't have any type of dye in it and she hasn't been wearing any different type of fabric lately. So, I really don't know what is causing this reaction, but the doctor prescribed us some medicine, so hopefully that will at least get rid of the rash.

While I'm on the subject of Hannah, I believe that she is going to be a little perfectionist. As I told you guys a while ago, she is so concerned with her nails. If she has a hang nail, she has to have it clipped right away. Yesterday I tried doing finger paints with her and she was mostly just concerned with the fact that her hands were dirty. She kept wanting me to wipe them. I also caught her fixing her hair in the mirror the other day. It was actually pretty funny! Here's a picture of her finger paint masterpiece:

Hannah has such sensitive little skin! Here's to hoping that nothing else shows up anytime soon. I can't wait to see you guys! Only a few weeks to go - by the way, the picture of Hannah in your last blog with the "take my picture" face....I think she looks exactly like her Grandpa Sprague! What a fun picture.

Love you all,

Grandma Julia (aka: Amah)

Allergies are so difficult! There was about six months of allergic reactions (hives and swollen lips) for Taylor when he was in the first grade. I took him to the allergy specialist and he couldn't find out what he was allergic to. It finally went away. I didn't think we were using, eating, or doing anything different; but I think I know now that it was the down comforter he was sleeping with that probably did it. Poor thing! I hope you can figure it out.

That's too funny that Hannah doesn't like to get her hands dirty. She's such a little girl.

Sorry about the allergies. Her sensitive skin must come from our genes. I have very sensitive skin and Allie seems to have it too.
