Hallie can have ice cream!

Unlike her big brother, Hallie is apparently not allergic to dairy products, much to our relief. This is especially good news for Erin and her dairy-loving side of the family and their connections to a certain state university that has its own on-campus dairy farm.

We gave Hallie formula for the first time today - the version that's based on cow's milk. And she did just fine! No spitting up or rashes, so in my experience as an amateur allergist, that means (in a few months) she's cleared for pizza with the cheese still on it. The other good news is that she takes a bottle from me pretty well, so dad can be more involved in feeding her - especially in the middle of the night, hooray!
