Cupcakes, Costumes, and Swine Flu. Oh my!

So Thursday was Annie's 2nd birthday party- Cupcakes and Costumes-too cute! We were super excited to go celebrate, play, and wear our halloween costume...ok, maybe I was excited. Well, it started out like every other day but when we got to the party Alex was really fussy. And it just got worse. He was crying and a mess and I had no idea what was wrong! It was really cold- weather we didnt plan for at all! So I thought maybe he was just cold, but it was weird that he wouldnt eat anything! This just wasnt like him at all. So we left and he fell asleep in the car in about 3 minutes! I was so shocked! He never does this and it was early for a nap. When we got home I realized that he had fever. I took him to the doc that afternoon to find out that he has swine flu. Poor thing. I was just glad I caught it early and got him on meds fast. The scary thing was that with me being pregnant I am at a high risk for getting it also. So I had to get on Tamiflu also as a preventative.
We are doing great now! Alex was only sick for the one day really. A little weak the second day but no fever since. So it was very short lived thankfully! And I, knock on wood, am still flu free. I am just praying this continues and doesn't show up in the days to come.

I love all the costumes! Too cute! But Alex is not wearing his. No, he is not an indian or whatever would be in a blanket. I just tried to keep him warm in the blanket. You will have to wait a little longer to see his cutie patootie costume!

Go for it girl!! Love it!! I think she had two cupcakes, minus the cake. ;)

Brandy wanted to get a picture of all the kids and this was a rare moment she caught. Thanks Brandy! Her pictures are so good! And yes, green is a clue but I took his costume off for comfort so this is not it either! :)
