To make a long story short...
We got sick. We had a birthday. We got sicker. We had a birthday party. We got sick AGAIN!
So here goes...
My poor little man started running a fever Sunday morning [his birthday was Monday]. So we actually went to the doctor on his birthday. So not fun!!! And for the 14th time [not really the 14th but sure felt like it] we were told to wait it out...everything looks good. WHY?!?!?!?!? But that nasty fever did not hold us back from celebrating his special day!!!
We started the day off with a doughnut and the happy birthday song! Tiny confession...I went to the dentist early Monday morning and on the way home picked up doughnuts for the birthday boy. There is just something funny about getting doughnuts after you've been to the dentist. Here's the birthday boy with his doughnut...
And we didn't stop with the doughnut...After dinner, he also got a cupcake! And boy did he tear into that cupcake!!! I think it's safe to say he's a chocolate lover...just like his mamma!
He's not looking under the weather at this point. It really started going downhill on Tuesday. Let's just say I went through a bottle of infant tylenol last week! Yeah, it was a rough couple of days.
Went back to the doctor Wednesday and, because his birthday party was Saturday, she gave him a shot and put him on meds. Wednesday night I was praising the Lord for modern medicine! And by Saturday, my little man was back in business and ready to P-A-R-T-Y! He did sleep through half his party! ha! [poor guy...he was still recovering from a week of sleepless nights!] The birthday party was an absolute blast! The weather was perfect, Sam's pulled through once again with their precooked brisket :), we had cupcakes, cowboy hats, cold lemonade and strawberry Abita. I am so thankful for the wonderful people in our lives...the fellowship could not have been any sweeter! I went to sleep Saturday night [completely exhausted] with a very full heart.
And guess who woke up Sunday morning with no voice...ME!!!!
Here's the birthday boy... Oh, I could just eat him up!!! :)
