She's totally fine now, but last night we took Charlotte to the emergency room. She had a fever the day before yesterday and then spent yesterday with a high fever as well. She was cranky and needy and just not herself. We eventually borrowed a baby thermometer from Jason's brother (you know, that kind of thermometer) and her temperature was 104. She was also make some funny jerking motions when she was sleeping and I was starting to worry that they were little seizures due to the high fever. Given that Jason has had a few seizures, we didn't want to risk anything so we headed over to urgent care. We got there and they sent us right over to the emergency room.

To make a long story short, Charlotte had an ear infection (and possibly other infections). They were able to get her temperature down and then gave her a shot of antibiotics in her leg (along with a prescription for amoxicillin). By the time we were ready to head home, she was feeling MUCH better:
