Ah, fancy Thai hospitals. The play areas really rock-when's the last time you saw a kid crying cause it was time to go home from the doctor's? We took advantage of being in Bangkok and at the hospital to get Nava's one year thyroid check up and I really liked the endocrinologist that we saw. First he checked the xray of Nava's hand (digital, which is cool anyways, plus much lower power required) to see how her bone development stacks up. He got out his textbooks and studied away and concluded her bones seem to be exactly what 1 year old bones look like. He felt her soft spot and reviewed the blood tests and said he was very impressed that everything was right on target. We discussed her height, saw it is following a curve well.

But the best part of the weekend was Saturday afternoon at the Rainbow Room. We only made it over for an hour last month and that just wasn't enough. This time we were there for playgroup and everyone had a great time. We met some Thai OTs from near us in Laos (who speak Lao) and they talked for hours with Nanny Noi--priceless! We found out a friend of theirs even comes to Vientiane regularly so maybe we can set up some regular sessions. But the best part of Rainbow Room is not OT and networking--it's playing! Lots of great toys and the paddling pool was a definite highlight! I even ran into an old friend from grad school there with her son. Now, how to start a Rainbow Room in Lao?
Nava was in top form all weekend-super cute and a great traveler. She's also turning into a ham for the camera:
Over and out!
