So, Celeste still has allergies, so just like last year, she really couldn't go all out on a birthday cake. BUT, she sure knew birthdays were all about cakes and sweets, so it was a bit of a challenge for us (and disappointment to her) to keep her from away from real cake.
But she is slowly growing out of her allergies. And talking to others, and the allergist, she may eventually grow out of them all. We're down to:
almonds, peanuts, soy products, egg, and milk. They're still major ingredients in most toddler foods, but we've gotten used to it.
