change is in the air

today marked the end of kenny's internship at OCM.

we said good bye at 5 of the services. hopefully, we'll still be in touch and partner together sometime in the future.

my bro was in town this weekend as well. joey loves his jojo. we went to a yankees/red sox game. it was joey's and my first time to the new stadium. my bro is a die hard red sox fan, joey of course is a yankee fan (kenny doesn't like telling people joey was actually born just outside of Boston), and i just enjoyed the garlic fries.

cause for celebration

meimei has been a lot more vocal this week!

in the middle of the night you can hear all sorts of groans, grunts, raspberries and "ehhh." while this is good for her, its not so good for those who sleep right next to her.

there's also some cause for celebration for joey...he's almost completely potty trained!
i've been brave on a few occasions and ventured out of the house with big boy underwear-- no pull ups! i've also become "one of those" moms who brings their kid to pee at a tree in the park. one day at seward park, i was sitting on the bench and my friend said, "i think joey needs to go to the bathroom." joey had pulled down his pants and underwear and was squatting by a tree. by the time i got over to him he had already pooped! i felt like i owned a dog, having to clean up after him. but what a milestone! congrats my almost 3 year old!

my poor meimei

we went to the endocrinologist today. most of our medical specialists are from weill cornell, we've been very satisfied with the level of professionalism and expertise.

basically, she had to get another blood test to determine whether or not she needs to be on thyroid medication. it's always been hard to draw blood from her. the geneticist had trouble, the pediatrician had trouble and today the nurse had trouble too. she first went fishing in the arm and got nothing. then she decided to to a heel stick... she cut meimei's heel and collected the blood drop by drop until she got the 3 vials she needed. needless to say, meimei was none too please with this. she rarely cries so when she does it's extra heartbreaking. it felt like an eternity. she was screaming with boogers streaming from her nose. my poor meimei

for all those brainiacs out there, please figure out some way to test for these things using just a drop of blood.

we'll find out the results in 5 days ... stay tuned.
