Birthday Celebration

I had a fantastic birthday. On Friday we visited the Getty Center. It was great. Even if you aren't a big museum fan (Harper hasn't quite learned to appreciate museums so we didn't spend much time inside) the grounds and the view are amazing. Here are some photos from the trip. The first is of Tom and Harper on the tram up to the museum and the others were taken at the museum. Notice that we are wearing shorts in January. It has been a warm month.And here is a panoramic photo that Tom took from the Getty with a few landmarks labeled.
On Saturday (my actual birthday) Tom surprised me with hot chocolate and a chocolate cake donut (two of my favorite things) for breakfast. Then we went to California Pizza Kitchen for lunch. Here is Harper looking over the menu:
And after that we all shared some Pinkberry. Harper was a big fan.I loved spending my birthday with my two favorite people! Here is another photo of Harper from this past week:When we took Harper to the doctor for her 9 month appointment we had a urine test done because we are visiting the urologist later this week and she wanted to make sure that Harper didn't have an infection first. Well, it turns out that she does have another UTI. I feel so sad for her. She has to take these terrible antibiotics that makes her sick and we hate making her take it . And we have to go back to the doctor tomorrow to make sure her urine is clear of bacteria before the urologist visit on Thursday. This is all very frustrating. I hate seeing my little girl feel bad and hate having to take her to the doctor all of the time. I also hate that all of this costs so much money and that I have to even worry about how much it costs when all I want is for Harper to be healthy. We'll update when we find out more from the urologist. We were hoping for good news, but considering that Harper has another infection it is doubtful that her condition has improved. Please keep her in your prayers!

Note - Century City in the panoramic photo is where I will be working later this year. That's about a 10-15 minute drive from our apartment, located on the far right.

I'm sorry about Harper's UTI. I hope it clears up soon. Will keep her in my prayers!
