1 year!

Cant believe this little lady is one year old already! It went by sooo fast for me! She has almost tripled her birth weight. Crazy!! Brynne has been such a healthy baby, but this past week she has been more sick than I have ever seen her!
At first I thought it was teething and then I realized that she already has 8 teeth and she never even acted like those bugged her at all. She wants to be held all day, only wants to have bottles..not her sippy cut and many solids which is so not like her. Cries constantly. Has a fever. Etc. Sunday I stayed home from church with her and she woke up from her nap with a bright red rash all over her face, back and stomach. So as soon as Taylor got home we took her to the Insta care. The Dr. looked at her for about 2 seconds, gave her a strep test, and then told me it was a virus and there was basically nothing he could do!! I was so mad/upset with this guy. The least he could do was try to research it more and figure more options, I really dont believe he had any idea if it was a virus or not, he barley even looked at her, and he doesn't understand how not herself she has been acting, this baby needs some medicine. And maybe there is nothing we can do, but he should have at least acted like he was trying to figure something out right?? That is exactly why I never go to the Dr. for myself, but I cant not take my baby because she cant tell me whats going on... grrrr frustating. Kind of Ironic though since Taylor wants to be a doctor...
Anyways Brynne's birthday party was so much fun, we had a GREAT turn out and had to borrow chairs from our neighbors. Thanks to everyone who could come, it was great to get to talk to some adults :) You can tell in these pictures Brynne is sick, no smiles poor thing!
She attempted to eat the top of her cake, and did a pretty good job! She wasnt as into as I think she would have been if she was feeling well, but was a good sport.
She did LOVE her balloons her dad got her, they entertained her for hours :)
According to Taylors Child Development class after babies turn 1 they are considered toddlers, not infants...sad. But she definitely "Toddles" so it makes sense.
Presents!! She got some great new clothes and toys that she/we will love!!
She opened this puzzle from her cousins and immediately started "Baaaing" when she saw the sheep!
"Clothes....whoopie......lets move to more toys!"
This has been basically my entire week with this little one, poor babe!! (Poor me!) I wanted to get a pic of the rash in case anyone had insights to what it was but the flash is blocking it. Oh well, its there.
Get well soon Brynne, we love you! Happy Birthday angel girl!

Happy Birthday Brynne! It seems like just yesterday you were pregnant (oh wait you were pregnant yesterday!)
I'm sorry that she's been so sick...seems like everyone we know has sick kids. I think my sick kids and your sick kids should hang out while we craft up something :)

Happy Birthday Brynne! Poor girl... I hope she feels better soon. We have dealt with mysterious rashes that no one knows anything about but never along with a sickness like that.

I love that picture of the three of you! I hope you are feeling well.

It did go by fast! So sad that she's sick on her birthday.

I HATE going to the doctor. I hardly go anymore, because most of the time they don't do a darn thing. But you never know with rashes, that can be scarey. Sorry she's sick, and sorry the Doc. stinks.
