Emma and I are having a sick day but really it is like we are playing hooky because Emma only has a cold as confirmed by the doctor this morning. She was running a low grade fever yesterday and had a runny nose along with a cough. While Brad and I suspected that it was nothing serious, they made it clear at daycare that she would not be welcome today and possibly not tomorrow if we didn't get to the root of the issue. With that, we decided it was just best to take her to the doctor and let them tell us what we already knew, which he did thankfully. That means that Emma and I just get to enjoy the day together since she is in a good mood and her normal self just plus a runny nose.
Brad and Emma thoroughly enjoyed their time together last week and had a great dinner out on Friday night at The Purple Cow. For dessert, they shared (I suspect that Brad had the lion's share) a chocolate shake. Brad said that he couldn't get the spoon into her mouth quickly enough. We finally ventured out to the neighborhood park last Sunday and Emma had a ball swinging and going down the slide. The slide is about 6 feet up but she had no fear and even went down twice head first with a big old grin on her face. She would have continued to go down head first if we had let her but it is much easier to catch her when she comes down feet first. No pictures or videos from that adventure but we will definitely have to catch some next time. In the meanwhile, here are a few photos from a couple of weeks ago.
