Our new enemy, the Asian pear


This weekend was a fun time. We were getting ready to head out to the park because it was so pretty and we decided Landon needed a snack before we went. I got out hummus, crackers & some pear slivers. I decided to pick up an asian pear to try when I was at the store and figured they were like any other pear. Nope. Of course by the end of snack, he was covered in hummus but he wasn’t throwing things and was happily eating…so WIN. Anyway, I go to wipe off all the hummus and his face is super splotchy around the mouth and he had puffy lips! WTF? So we called the Dr. and they said to bring him in right away. Long story short, he is allergic to Asian pears. He never had breathing issues and was happy the whole time at the doctor. We now have Jr. epipens and have to keep an eye out.

Sorry for the rough picture, it was my phone.
