Happy Halloween!

Drake's 2nd Halloween didn't go quite like I planned.

On Friday, when we went to pick Drake up from daycare Alicia was taking his temperature. Then, I heard him cough. It sounded just like croup. We went to get a desperately needed haircut and then went to the doctor for their walk-in time. Diagnosis - croup! Thank goodness it just started, and he didn't have stridor. We went straight home, and he hasn't left since.

The cough is finally sounding better and the fever finally broke today, but he still isn't sleeping great. We've been running the humidifier in his room and giving him Tylenol 24/7 hoping it will go away SOON!

We had Papa Murphy's Jack-o-Lantern pizza for dinner...

And then, Drake got in his costume and we walked outside for a little while (doctor said the cool air is good for croup). 


Hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween!!
