These pictures are at least a week and a half late. You'll have to forgive me. We had the bug from hell make it's way throughout our entire house - it somehow missed me and while that might seem like a good thing I am utterly exhausted from taking care of 2, no...3 sick babies. I almost wish I had gotten sick so I'd have gotten a break from it all and had an excuse to lounge in bed.
The whole thing actually started right here... Yep. The annual Boo at the Zoo. This time it was Scarlett and Carson's 2 year anniversary! Can you believe it? It breaks my heart that she was sick. Here are the previous years - first play date with Carson, 1 year anniversary. We started off strong. Scarlett was so excited to get the zoo and see Carson. And then once she saw him she started fading. She wanted me to carry her everywhere and she wasn't being her typical spunky self.
Did I say LOVED?!
But she must have spent all of her energy running because it was all downhill from there.
Poor goose.Val bought her a special cupcake and she didn't even touch it. If that's not a sign that a 2 year old is under the weather, what is? Then things got a little scary. She fell off the bench she was sitting on (and she rarely falls). I couldn't get her to stop crying. She got really hot and by the time I rushed her home her fever was 103.7! But the "fun" doesn't end there. I got her home from the zoo and Joe was holding a screaming Holden. Now Holden never cries - and he was inconsolable. I had been with Bubs all morning, so I was incredibly worried about her. Joe had been with Holden all morning, so he was incredibly worried about him. Scarlett was lethargic and Holden wouldn't stop screaming. It was so bad that we packed everyone in the car for a trip to the emergency room.
At the pediatrician's the next morning, we discovered that Holden had a double ear infection and pink eye in both eyes. Scarlett appeared to have had a 24 hour bug.
Here she is leaving the first house in complete and total shock that getting candy was that easy.
Scarlett went from house to house until she had decided that she had had enough after about an hour. I asked her if she wanted to get some more candy and her response was, "no mom. I have candies already." But Scarlett...don't you want more? "No mom. I have candies already."
