Back to health

Leah had a stomach virus this week. Lots of changing of clothes and sheets and doing of laundry. Not fun for any of us. Her appetite isn't quite back to normal, but the vomiting and diarrhea have stopped. Shafi and I got very excited about Leah's solid poop this afternoon...ahh, the joys of parenting.

So not much to report this week other than that. Her vocabulary is growing incredibly fast these days. Not only does she repeat words well - we've been doing lots of please and thank you and things like that - but she's starting to say a new word every day or two. Some of the words are even useful - she has started asking for milk. Although that was not a good thing this week, since we took her off milk for a few days so as not to make the diarrhea worse. Friday she threw a 45 minute tantrum when I wouldn't give her milk...I had to take her out for a walk to calm her down. I think we may be in for a rough time with the terrible twos starting already.

Despite not feeling so great, we've been able to enjoy the park and playgrounds in the nice weather this week.
