Vaughn woke up sick on her birthday. I could word it many different ways but it's easier to say that it just sucked. We canceled our birthday plans for her and even a play date that we were supposed to host the day after. No cake, no candles, no birthday girl pictures.

A small 4 year old
I took her to the doctor and no reasons were found for being sick. Which is great, but would have been nice to know what's wrong and given medicine to fix her. I'm thinking it's just her 2 year molars coming in. Poor thing has been miserable and has been clinging to Justin and I, which is a whole lotta fun.
While we were at the doctor's, she went ahead and did the 2 year check-up so we didn't have to come back for our scheduled appointment. Vaughn is still The Big Lovely Lady (BLL) and the doctor compared her to being a small 4 year old.
Sidebar: The doctor told me that it's hard for parents with kids who look older because the general public assumes that they are in fact older and should behave differently and will often make comments on their assumptions. Hmmm....Didn't that happen to me last
So, the BLL is in the 96th percentile for weight and the 98th percentile for height. And I'm in the 100th percentile for being in shock that our big, little baby is 2.
I went to the dentist yesterday and the hygienist gave me a hug. Was it my shoes? My never having a cavity? Maybe that's how she celebrates Cinco de Mayo. Who knows, but it's Thursday and it's sunny and it's pizza night. Hugs for everyone!
