Pea Allergy

Yes, a pea allergy. There has probably been more than one kid and even some adults who have wished for this one! 😉 I discovered Jacob was allergic to peas when he was about 6 mos old.   His reactions from eating a jar of babyfood peas- [peas, water-listed as ingredients] made it pretty obvious!
