the skin(ny) on nola

have been panicking a bit about nola's skin. the rash potentially caused by a smoothie didn't go away as quickly as i expected, so i descended straight into pessimistic hell and predicted a return to the very strict elimination diet that i was on when i was nursing paul. i even reviewed paul's pictures from this age and determined that because his skin burst out of control between the ages of five to seven months, she was right on schedule and soon we'd be thrown back into that world of infant allergies. but her skin has slowly and steadily improved day by day, so i'm thinking perhaps i was a bit rash (sigh) in my instant negativity. she does have her six-month check-up on tuesday, though, so we'll ask about allergy testing at that time.
