We'll just have to keep the celebration going!

On Valentine's night, Harper shared a chocolate cupcake with dad, it was delicious!

Harper got the flu last Wednesday, it's been a long week... Here she is on Thursday, I thought she was totally over it & we'd be back to normal schedule by Friday...didn't happen that way.
But doesn't she look well?
Saturday morning we had gotten over another bad slump!
(Friday was brutal, vomit and all)
Reading books & taking it easy!

Opening up wonderful packages from The Kitts & Great Grandma Dody, what fun clothes!

Birthday eve, Sunday night, after a trip to urgent care... confirmed pnuemonia, but allowed to go home & rest up...
Riding daddy! Off to bed for books...
and a lovely family photo session ;) we're going to have to work on these!

Birthday Girl! Monday we joined daddy & Meme for lunch at Cheesecake Factory!

A special birthday treat, they even sang to Harper! She loved it!

You know our little one is having a tough day when even ice cream can't bring smiles!

And, our day took a turn for the worst!
Harper spiked a fever again in the afternoon, up to 103 in a matter of minutes.
After talking to her doctors, we decided to take her to the ER at Children's Hospital.

Thankfully, one of the physicians saw Harper across the incredibly packed waiting room,
noticed her breathing problems and "fast tracked" us into a room. They were able to stabilize
her breathing & the fever started to drop. Due to her other complications (DS, VSD, etc..), we were checked in for the night. So, Harper's birthday evening was spent away from home.

Truth be told, I was thankful. This roller-coaster ride of fever, then okay, sick, than okay for the past few days was exhausting all 3 of us! It was a welcome relief to know that she would have the best people to watch over her & make sure she got well.

And, she did! We got the okay to go home last night!

She is doing well today.
The celebration of Harper's 2nd year will continue on...
Pizza Party on Sunday and a trip to Great Wolf Lodge
in Kansas City on March 6th!
Words just cannot express our love for our dear, sweet Harper Grace.
We are so incredibly blessed to know and love her.
She is our pride and joy.
I am a lucky momma.
