Family Update

Just to keep you all in the loop:

-D's medical referral finally came through!  After about 5 weeks of investigating possible causes for his abdominal pain and wrangling with doctors, the hospital has agreed to send D off-island to see a GI specialist.  We don't know when he'll be heading out- a friend has warned me that these kinds of specialists can be booked months in advance, but even the chance for D to see a specialist feels like a small victory for me.
-Sky just keeps growing.  She's still skinny, so she's still wearing 18M pants and shorts but I've added her 2T shirts, pajamas and swimsuits to her dresser.  It's so amazing to see her grow so fast!
-We've started potty training!  Ask me in a month or so and maybe there won't be an exclamation point after that but it's pretty exciting for now.  She has used the potty several times at school but last night was the first time she asked for it at home.  Of course, as soon as she finished using the potty and stood up, she bent over and swished her hand in it, but hey, it's a start.  I'd thought that it would take a lot longer to get to potty training but I guess she's ready.
-Sky's language is growing almost exponentially.  She said her first non-prompted, appropriately-timed and gramatically correct sentence yesterday: As I was riding away from her school, she waved and said, "Bye-bye school".  We're really proud of her and are trying not to brag too much about how smart we think she is, 'cause, you know, she get's it from us!
-I'm going to be running in Kwaj's Columbus Day Runabout.  It's a 6.5 mile loop around the island, longer than I've ever run before and I'm going to take the baby in her jogger.  I really think I can do the whole thing but I'm not going to be too upset at myself if I have to walk a bit.

  So, I guess that's the high points.  Other than that, it's the usual day-to-day.  Our day-to-days have been going okay lately and I hope yours have too.
