Tuesday was not the best day that I've ever had! Wrigley has turned into the pickiest eater EVER! He could be eating a cracker, and then you go to give him another one and he'll completely freak out...and it's like that ALL THE TIME! So I never know what to give him to eat, cause half the time he won't even eat what we're eating!

So Tuesday morning my sister Brooke was eating eggs and Wrigley kept doing the sign for food in her face so she gave him some, and he really liked it. So I thought great at least I know that he likes eggs. Well that night I was fighting with him over what he will or will not eat for dinner, before I had to leave for Young Women's. So I decided that I'd make him some eggs (since he had really enjoyed them earlier in the day). Well he had eaten about half when he started rubbing his eye and it started turning really red, then he got little splotches on his face. So I stopped giving it to him, thinking that he was having an allergic reaction. And then I had to go to Young Women's so I left him with Brooke and Jordan.

Well at about 8:30 my Mom comes running into the church gym and said "Wrigley's not doing good at all. You need to come right home. We've been trying to get a hold of you for a while now. He's completely broken out in hives!" Well anyone who knows me knows that I tend to freak out pretty easily, and I am a pro at worrying about anything and everything. So I quickly tell the YW Pres that I've got to go take care of the little one. As soon as I left I started to cry and loose it. But I called his doctors office and had the doctor call me right back. When I got home Wrigs whole face and neck was bright red and covered with hives, he was acting totally fine but I was still freaking out! The Doctor called me back and said that I needed to give him children's Benadryl, and that if he starts to have a problem breathing to go to the ER, so I had my Mom go and get some. But when she came back she said that the pharmacist said that I should "absolutely not" give it to him, because the side effects for children under 6 could be death. WHAT DEATH! HOLY CRAP! So I of course didn't give it to him now more freaked out than I was before!

When Steve got home, he and Jordan gave Wrigley a blessing, and that made me feel better but I was still really nervous about him sleeping, so we left his bedroom door open so I could go in and make sure that he was still breathing! (yup paranoid. I'm aware!)

Well he was fine until about 1 o'clock when he woke up screaming, so I ran in there and his eyes were swollen shut! I freaked out and woke up Steve and he took Wrigley while I called the doctor. He said that Benadryl is fine that I should have given it to him earlier, but that I should give him a little less than 1 tsp. every 6 hours. So that's what we did. But I was so freaked out that I really couldn't sleep the rest of the night. When I got back from work at 9 Wednesday morning he looked tons better but he was still pretty puffy.

It was a pretty scary event for me, especially since I had just had my first allergic reaction to Penicillin a few weeks ago, so I knew what he was going through. He was so great though, just being his happy self, and even giving me hugs to try and help me feel better. He was so sweet!

Anniversary #2!

Today Steve and I are celebrating Anniversary #2!

It is fun to think about the new adventure that we had just begun last year at this time as new parents. A lot has changed over the last year for us. It's been a great year and I'm so glad that I married Steve on St. Patrick's day 2 years ago!

Today for our anniversary Steve told me to meet him at the Little America at 1 with tennis shoes!


I didn't know what he had up his sleeve but I was excited to find out!

when I met him we got in the car and he surprised me with a beautiful bouquet of flowers.
Gerbra favorite!

He drove us up to Ensign Peak and we hiked up and had a really nice picnic.

It was really sweet, and kinda sentimental. Steve said that he wanted to take me up there because it is symbolic of when Brigham Young went up there all those years ago and saw a vision of the future of the Salt Lake Valley.

I thought that this was a neat brick in the monument!

We went up to see the "future"of our relationship.
I thought that was really sweet and just classic Steve! I loved it!

OK so I guess there is some confusion about something I wrote in my tag post. NO unfortunately I'm not pregnant. Yet. Steve and I have been talking about it and hopefully there will be an announcement towards the end of the summer, or early fall.

Don't worry. When it happens there will be no question. You will all know for sure!
