Subway Ride and Manhattan, NYC

Aug 13, 2012 was a very busy and hectic Monday for Lina <3. We spent all day outside the house from dawn to dusk. You ate breakfast at home, and out we went. Early that morning, Daddy drove us to PorPor's (grandmother in Cantonese) house because she had an dentist appointment in Manhattan, NYC and had wanted me to accompany her.

We took the train for the first time in Brooklyn, NY. Mommy had not taken the train in such a long time and everything looked different. It was actually so pretty. You had a great time looking around the sites. The coming and going of the trains while waiting for our train platform did not scare you at all.

While on the train, you were not scared at all. You like being in new places and situations because it gives you the chance to look around. The noise that the train made when it open and close the door was interesting to you. The children and adults on train were also intriguing.  Mommy was worried that you would be afraid of the train because it can be so noisy, and loud.

Lina <3, we went underground...ohhh ohhh, you did not notice, I bet lol. Sometimes the train goes underground and that is where we have to go on another train. You had such a busy time watching everyone rush back and forth to wherever they were going. So many trains went by before ours came.

My poor baby had such an early day, that she was exhausted by the time the other train came. It is funny that you would sleep so easily on me while riding the train because you are such a poor sleeper.

To our destination, PorPor's dentist appointment that took too long. Got there at 11am and did not leave until 5:30pm because the dentist was so backed up and busy!... busy BS-ing (Lina <3, Mommy hoped that you do not find out what that means, lol). We would had left earlier but Lina <3 was being so good, and quiet; and we did not want to come back. You were enjoying watching all the people in the waiting room. You even interacted with some of the people sitting near us. That is the first time, you ever interacted with strangers by smiling, and staring at them for a long time. Usually you get shy and look around after a while. You also took a walk in the hallway, with Mommy supporting you. You also waved at Mommy for the first time. This the first time you were waving... (Milestone! Yay!) Mommy was so happy that you waved to me because I had been trying to show you for a while. You had fun at the dentist's office. You spent a lot of time with PorPor :) which you both love. The crazy thing was that dentist's office's restroom was not baby friendly at all. There was no changing table, Mommy had to squat and change you on my  lap because there was no way in hell was I putting you on the floor, or anywhere in that yucky restroom! I fed you your organic Morning Os (it is like Cheerios) and you breast milk from the bottle. I also nursed with a big scarf around us (yes Lina <3, Mommy breast fed you in public).

After we left the dentist's office, we took a long walk over by City Hall and into Chinatown.

After a long long long day outside, guess who was waiting to pick us up and take us home? Daddy.  After we got home, you slept about almost 4hrs (the longest you slept in a long time).
