I was looking through my computer tonight and I realized that there were a few pictures that I forgot to post on here that I had wanted to for record purposes. So here they are.
In the beginning of the month, Aunt Sally came to stay with us in Birmingham. She comes often to visit her boyfriend and we absolutely love having her around!
This next picture is by far one of my most favorite Halloween pictures that I took of Mary Hyatt and I can't believe I forgot to put it in my Halloween post. Ben and I had gone to our storage one night to drag out these ol' Jack-o-lanterns that my mom had given us. When we plugged them up, Mary Hyatt was mesmerized. She just sat and stared at them forever....well, until she tried to reach in and get the light bulb out of them and I had to put them up high. haha
Another major event that happened in October was that Mary Hyatt got really sick. She never ran a fever but lets just say she wasn't keeping anything in her system. (This is no fun in general, but it is DEFINITELY no fun with a toddler that doesn't know how to warn you when it's coming!) This lasted for about 5-6 days. Throughout this whole time she was totally lifeless. She just slept and slept and slept. We were afraid she was getting dehydrated because she would only have one wet diaper about every 10-12 hours but after multiple calls from an anxious mama, our pediatrician said that was ok. It was still a scary and stressful week. Both Ben and I both each missed 3 days of work.
We ended up going to Decatur that weekend for a wedding. Though she was MUCH better than she had been, she still wasn't feeling quite 100% and she got in a few extra snuggles with her pappy while he showed her something on his phone.
