happy 2nd birthday!

What a weekend it has been! It started out a little rough for Embry. He woke up Friday morning (the actual birthday) crying. He didn't feel good and he continued to feel worse so off to the doctor's office we went. After two breathing treatments, two shots, a needle stick to the finger and a chest xray, we were headed back home to deal with beginnings of pneumonia. The poor guy didn't crack a smile all day until I tickled him right before bed. What a way to celebrate your second birthday, huh?

It's amazing the difference a good night's sleep and some good medicine can make! Embry felt so much better Saturday morning, just in time for the birthday party. We had friends and family over for cake and fun with the help of the Very Hungry Caterpillar. It seemed a bit crazy at times (especially while opening presents) but it was so much fun to see all the kiddos interact and play with each other.

By the way, thanks to my mom, dad and sister for saving my butt this weekend. I put them to work pretty much as soon as they walked in the door on Friday. Instead of knocking out my pre-party checklist as planned, I ended up taking care of my sick baby instead... which even though he was sick, I really enjoyed the snuggle time. Thanks guys!
