Gaetano's Food Allergy

To make a really long story short, we have good reason to believe that Gaetano is allergic to artificial colors in food. For the last month or so now, we've done our best to avoid giving him anything artificially colored and let me tell you it hasn't been easy.

Since he's been off the artificial colors, he's no longer congested all the time. His behavior has improved in school, he's learning more, eating better with increased appetite, and he's grown at least an inch. Sure, some of that may be coincidental, but not all of it...

As soon as I find a moment to exhale, I'll schedule him to see an allergist to confirm my suspicions. I'm more confident than ever though that they'll be able to confirm my suspicions. In fact, if it turns out that he doesn't have an allergy to artificial food coloring, I'll be pretty shocked.
