It's only the 5th of May and I feel like we've already been through the ringer.
We made it to my parents' house on Thursday evening and the weather was beautiful. Friday we spent a lot of time outside and Whitt got to enjoy a sucker.
That afternoon, Amanda and I got to have some BFF time. We did some shopping, got pedicures and just enjoyed each other's company.
Jon got me a magnolia blossom from my parents' magnolia tree. It smelled heavenly!
The next day was Whitt's party (that post to follow). All of us needed naps afterwards, but Whitt refused, so my mom took him to my grandpa's car garage and let him "test drive" a few beauties.
Sweet Anna and Annabel had some fun in the bounce house that evening.
And this is the only picture I got of the birthday boy on his actual birthday. I woke up Sunday morning with my throat absolutely on fire. We drove back home, I went to a walk-in clinic, they gave me a steroid shot, but said it was just allergies. Monday I felt even worse and couldn't even talk because my throat hurt so bad. I went to a different doctor, was diagnosed with strep throat, given a penicillin shot (which almost made me pass out) and now I feel almost 100% better! Praise the Lord!
Anyway, poor Whitt didn't have any of the fun his sisters did on their actual first birthday, but at least he got to wake up to balloons, thanks to his Nana & Happy.
And we're down to just nursing once a day at night. He's doing great with that, but still likes his morning cuddles.
