I just couldn’t have dreamt you up, Storm. I wish you could stay this little forever and I could protect that contagious smile and laugh of yours. I know you won’t remember much about the first year of your life but I pray that you’ll never forget to keep sharing your joy and laughter with the world. My love grows for you a thousand miles a minute. Every day with you is the best day of my life. Happy birthday to my angel on earth.”

On International Women’s Day, Jenner shared a sweet pic with baby Stormi and explained, “this little girl motivates me every day to become the best woman i can be.”

When does an allergic reaction require a trip to the hospital?

According to the website Kids Health, allergic reactions can be caused by food, medicine, pets, and insect stings and “most allergic reactions aren’t serious.” The site does note that “severe reactions can be life-threatening and need immediate medical care,” however.

Mild symptoms of an allergic reaction include itching, redness of the sin, stuffy or runny nose, sneezing, itchy and watery eyes, and hives. More severe symptoms that would require a call to the doctor or hospital visit are, according to the site, swelling of the mouth or tongue, trouble swallowing or speaking, wheezing or trouble breathing, dizziness or fainting, as well as stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea.

The most severe allergic reaction is anaphylaxis, in which a person feels like their throat is closing and they have trouble breathing. The Life Signs website notes that a trip to the hospital emergency room is important for an allergic reaction that involves hives all over your body and/or if you are having problems breathing.
