Happy Birthday Riley

Wednesday, October 18th, 2006

Today Riley turned 4 years old. The BIG news of the day is that Riley no longer allergic to eggs. Praise God!!! Yeah!!! Riley was diagnosed as allergic to eggs when he was six months old. He has been getting better over the years. Today he went in for an egg challenge. This is where you eat a couple of eggs in front of the allergy doctor to see if you are going to react to the egg. Riley ate two scrambled eggs, and LOVED them. He was given the all clear and topped off his morning with a strawberry filled doughnut from Dunkin Donuts. He has never had a Doughnut before today because of the egg in the batter.

After arriving home from the doctor there was a knock at the door. Riley got a delivery of a cute stuffed animal with a ton of birthday balloons attached to it. These were from Grandma and Grandpa. As you can see, Riley really liked this surprise.

We celebrated Riley’s birthday by having breakfast for dinner. We had pancakes and sausage. Riley finally got to have my really fluffy pancakes (with blueberries added to his) that I make that also have egg in them. Up until today I have made a special batch for him where I used baking soda, vinegar, and water as an egg substitute.

We topped off dinner with a few Birthday gifts. Here are the highlights.
