Happy 2nd Birthday Surae!

Surae’s 2nd Birthday is Monday, so we celebrated with a little party on Saturday.  This also means that on Tuesday, we will have had Surae for a whole year.  We decided to just invite family for her birthday party as Surae is still not too crazy about other people being around.  She is a big time velcro baby with me. 

Surae, unfortunately, did not hold up too well for the party.  She clung to me the whole time and wouldn’t let anyone touch her.  She got really upset about her gifts (again- an apprehension to all things new and unfamiliar) and just kept saying no.  The only gift she seemed to attach to was a stuffed Camel from Pop Pop and Roni and her dress up jewelry. 

I thought she was handling things even worse than anticipated and I finally felt her head and she seemed pretty warm.  She had a runny nose all day, but everyone in my house has a runny nose right now, so I didn’t think too much about it.  Anyway, when I took her temperature it was 103.1. She always seems to run a really high temp when she’s not feeling well. 

We put her to bed early (before even eating her cake) and she stayed asleep for a few hours, but was then up constantly, so I pulled her into bed with me around 9.  She slept pretty well and her fever went right down, but she is a restless sleeper, so I didn’t get much sleep at all.  It was kind of a crazy birthday to say the least.

In other news, my dad and Roni bought Surae this baby doll that moves and coos.  Surae didn’t want anything to do with it, but Graham loves it.  He keeps wanting to feed it and put it to sleep.  It is too funny.  Graham is calling her his new sister.  Ha!!
