From Vanessa’s Facebook wall:
Our pediatrician recommended that we introduce any food that Olivia is allergic to, to the twins before they turn one. There is new research that says early exposure (like before 8 mons) leads to lower rate of food allergies in kids. Anyway, milk and eggs have been easy to give them but nuts have been tough. Today was one of those sneak-ice-cream-before-dinner kind of mom days. The twins had crawled into the kitchen and were judging me as I furtively ate some Butter Pecan. Then I thought, hey, nuts and milk! So the twins ate ice cream for the first time today. They cried when I put it away. And, thus, they are for sure my children.
