Matylin and Kaylin wouldn't stop fighting over him at first, so we decided they would each get a day with him, and flip flop through the week.
He had a great time at the library!!! Helped Matylin pick out some really great books. I couldn't pull either one of them away from a fascinating book about the Wright brothers. When I said it was time to go, Shinko and Matylin disappeared, but I found them tucked away in the reading cubby.

Unfortunately Kaylin has been having some pain in her lower back, so we had to go to the doctor. Shinko LOVED all the cool tools in the room, he couldn't stop playing with them! When the doctor started to come in he froze by the blood pressure cuff. He said later that he was hoping the doctor wouldn't notice him.

We made a trip to hospital as well for some lab work. I asked him to stay home and keep an eye on Simon (our big fat cat), but he was so worried for Kaylin that he managed to sneak into her bag. He is a pretty tricky monkey. So he kept the girls giggling while we waited for our turn.
We've got lots of work to do in the studio this week and Shinko is being very helpful. He has quite an eye for color!
We're super excited for Sunday to get here because Matylin and Kaylin's Aunt Dawn is running in her first marathon, and we're all going to cheer her on!
I'll write again soon! Shinko told Kaylin he misses you very much!!!
