2 days, 2 trips to the doctor

That's right.  We were at the doctor yesterday and then again today.  Yesterday was Emmett, today was Annika (thankfully her appointment was just for a scheduled check-up, not for any illness).

Emmett has been sick for the past week.  I'll save you the gory details, but he has rotavirus, which is not pretty.  It's been a rough week, but he seems to have turned a corner and so far today there hasn't been anything coming out either end. ;)  The skin on his bum is still pretty red, though, but hopefully that will get better soon too.  And it will be nice to get back to using our cloth diapers again.  It's been disposables for the past week, and we've gone through quite a few!

Annika had her 5 year old check up today (her birthday is next Saturday).  She had to get 2 needles today, and she did really well - no tears at all.  The doctor said everything else looked good - she's a healthy kid.  She weighed in at 39.5 pounds and is 43 inches tall.

So hopefully now we'll be staying out of the doctor's office for a while!
