I'm not sure how visible it is in this picture, but I tried to capture Mikan's first "food reaction." We gave him applesauce and added a bunch of cinnamon (all spices were recommended by the speech therapist to try adding to his purees since he can't taste very well with the trach). Anyway, after a few bites and making a mess on his face, I cleaned him up and noticed a bright red ring around his upper lip, cheeks and chin. He seemed pretty happy, even after eating it, so I don't think it was an allergic reaction (nothing severe at least), something just his skin was sensitive to I guess. It went away later in the afternoon. But we'll be avoiding cinnamon just in case. Bummer.
