I gave A a piece of toast with smooth peanut butter, which he loves. He was doing great, just sucking the toast, occasionally chewing and generally licking the peanut butter off it as he usually does, then he started gagging on a piece of toast. He spat it out, but when he went to put the next piece in, i guess his gag reflex wasnt done because he suddenly started vomiting like crazy, it was coming out of his nose and everything. Is this normal? Should i lay off toast for a while?

Some babies do find toast quite gaggy. I think it's something to do with it being hard, but then turning soft. Also, it can have a tendency to stick to the roof of their mouth in a big, soggy lump. Not all babies have that problem, mind. However, if yours is one of the type who find toast gaggy, I can imagine the peanut butter is making things even stickier!
Maybe try offering peanut butter on something else? Or maybe try a different type of bread?

We also had a couple of epic vomits like you describe. It's pretty impressive.

I've also had this experience! (Ok not me personally...but my DS)

I found the PB & toast combo to be a bit much for him. Try some butter instead as it can 'soften' the bread a bit better than the PB. Cashew butter also tends to be a bit more runny than PB so you could give that a go.
