Day 244-- My husband bought this plastic baseball and bat for Emily to take to the family reunion. The first time we played, she had no idea how to hold the bat. I taught her how to hold it, and then she was a natural. She got a hit right away. It was pretty amazing.
After that, it all sort of fell apart on her. She almost always spins all the way around with each swing, so she looks more like a ballerina than a baseball player. She hits about a quarter of my pitches now, which seems normal to me.
To continue Annika's saga...
She had no cold symptoms at all, but the fever wouldn't go away. She also developed one heck of a rash all over her legs and butt. We thought maybe diaper rash or heat rash or eczema, but it didn't really look like any of those.
MUCH time was spent researching rashes on the internet. I started to feel like I would explode if anyone mentioned the word "rash" near me ever again. No progress was made.
