Pneumonia

Ziva has pneumonia. We took her to the doctor Thursday aftenoon after she had to come home from school (10 minutes after I dropped her off) with a high fever, coughing, and blah-ness. After listening to her breathe, the doctor ordered a chest x-ray, which was NOT fun for either me or Ziva, but we survived, and it did show pneumonia as the doctor suspected. She also has a double ear infection, poor kid. So we stayed home yesterday, and she's been dosing up on antibiotics, Tylenol and Motrin. Considering all that, she's doing really great. Even when she's sick, she's still a pretty happy baby.

In other news, I'm expecting that after her one year check up in a few weeks, we'll be needing to upgrade to a forward facing car seat. Can anyone who's passed that stage recommend a seat you love? I can spend hours reading recommendations on-line, or trust people I know. Sounds like a no brainer. :)

Poor little Ziva! Hope she's feeling all better very soon!

I hate that Ziva is so sick! This kind of stuff is the pits. Hang in there, both of you.
I used a Graco convertible seat that they don't sell anymore. I'm getting ready to put it in for Wyatt. If I were you, though, I would check out the Graco Nautilus. I think that's what Ryan's parents have for Ethan and I wish that's what I had gotten. You can use it now through the end of the car seat stuff, so you won't have to buy a booster when she hits 40 pounds. See if anyone you know has one.
Good luck!
