One Little Baby Step

Little A is on her feet now. Still needs something to hang onto, mostly my fingers, for balance, but watch out, world! She is a-walkin'!!

Here is her first pair of shoes for training.

Couldn't resist but to put them next to my Converse.

My first shoe shopping that was more satisfying than the time I swiped my plastic for a pair of Manolos back in 2005.

Until next time,

Disney Victim

A has recently found her fondness in watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse every morning. See how her toys are pathetically and uselessly laying around her, waiting for their lady to play with them in vain? I suspect it's the colors that are so ridiculously defining and vivid that make everything look super fun for babies to stare at. Look how the picture looks stupidly clear even on a camera shot (doesn't work this way with Barney & Friends).

She loves the part where, in the beginning, Mickey forgets to say the magic words to make the clubhouse appear and tell the audience to say them with him. Damn you, Disney. Everything is made addictive to children! And did you know that babies are prone to notice round things over any other shapes? Duh.

Until next time,

Hello World!

Have just realized I haven't even been on line for three weeks, let alone updated a post on blog. I've come a long enough way keeping Diary of a Japanadian, I refuse to let this die.

While I was busy off line, I turned 33, too. Thank you for wishing me a happy birthday, those of you who did. I did, indeed, have a very nice, homey birthday where A was adorable and T was sweet (bought me roses in antique pink! my fave colour!). Couldn't have wished for more.

Until next time,
