Hallie Update

Hallie is feeling so much better lately! Thankfully her fever broke and the rash went away. We made a visit to our new pediatrician this past Tuesday and he said he had seen this same scenario on other kids so far this summer. He called it a "summer virus". Strange. Nonetheless, the fever did go away as did the rash, so for that we are tremendously thankful! Now we're just dealing with teething--Hallie is getting her one year molars. Fun times.

On a happier note, Hallie and I spent some time at the pool yesterday. The weather was beautiful and it was great that we were all feeling well enough to get out of the apartment! Hallie has turned into a water baby (we'll see if that remains). She loved floating around in her little ladybug float and then thought she'd be brave and play in the kiddie part of the pool. After that she wanted me to swim her out to the lions--there are lion heads all around the pool that spout out water. She LOVES them! If that wasn't enough, she took to climbing (sort of) up the ladder and then walking around to the side of the pool to jump into my arms. She did this over and over and over again! I was amazed. After doing this multiple times, she wasn't even waiting to make sure I was ready--which I always, thankfully, was! She had so much fun. We hope Daddy gets to enjoy some of that fun this weekend! :o) I would love to have a video of her jumping into the pool...but that's kinda hard when you're the one doing the catching. So hopefully soon! :o)

Thanks to all of you who prayed Hallie (and the rest of us) would feel better soon! Much love!!

Wow! Sounds like you do have a water baby! That fearlessness is great, but it makes mom's hard even harder :) Great you are all feeling better!
