Dalton's Birthday

At the beginning of September we were invited to Dalton's first birthday party.
It was at the park by their house and the girls loved being outside and playing on the grass.



Little Dalton wasn't a big fan of his cupcake. 

But he was a fan of the babies! And the babies love him! :) I think they will be great friends!

Cute Dalton sat on my lap while I ate and shared my watermelon. :)

Aren't these the cutest cupcakes that Caitlin made?!
 Thanks for inviting us to your party, Dalton!

This has nothing to do with the party, but I wanted to post about it.
When Morley woke up the morning after the party, I noticed a red mark on her arm. I thought it was just from sleeping on it but it didn't go away. 
Throughout the day I noticed more and more red spots and they started looking like hives.
They kept spreading up her legs and arms and on her face.

I had given them bananas for the first time that morning and I wondered if she was allergic to them.
It was a Saturday so I called the urgent care at our Doctor's office just to see what they thought I should do. They asked me some questions and told me to give her some children's Benadryl and take her in on Monday if it had gotten any worse.
Sunday morning she looked a lot worse so I kept her home from church. I felt so bad, but it didn't seem to bother her at all.

When she woke up Monday morning she looked better but throughout the day they started coming back. So I called the Doctor and they said to bring her in.
He looked at her and said it was a viral infection. He said he actually sees a lot of it in small kids this time of year. I told him about the bananas and that I thought she might be allergic to them and he said with food allergies the hives would appear mostly on the stomach and back. She had none on her stomach or back. Anyway he said it would just have to run its course and to let him know if it got any worse. 
The hives were completely gone the next day. And Wrigley never caught the virus, thank goodness.

This is also completely unrelated but that same day, Jeff put Wrigley's headband on her....
Doesn't it look attractive?! :)

Glad to hear she's ok and that knowone else got it. That's so sad. I hate when kids are sick.
