LEG WARMERS


LEG WARMERS
Originally uploaded by piroko_kuroda


Went to Nihombashi and had lunch at Mandarin Oriental Hotel. Pretty good Italian buffet, we ate too much. Ren had to go to Iai, and me and Tonchan went to Nihombashi Tamashimaya. Purchased leg warmers since the weather got cold and we don't have clothes... It's a little too tight around her thighs....

外人アパート

So, here we are, living in a gaijin apartment for three days now. Tonchan looks like getting used to this place, and went to sleep fairly early today, and gave me some time to blog.

Went to Gymboree Music class today. She was freaked out by wave sound instrument, and didn't quite attend the activities.... Oh well.

Koharu was there with her mom for the other activities there, and we went to have lunch together. After having tea, she became sleepy, and we said good by to them.

At home (for the time being), Ren and Brad were back from zen retreat, and Ren had to leave for work.

ergo baby

Did I write about ergo baby Haruka got me from Hawaii? It's soooo comfortable and a lot better than the other baby carrier!! If you're thinking about getting one, I'd recommend this one. Thanks Haruka!

さよならユウカ

Went to Yuka's for her farewell before her departure to India. Her dad's relocated to India for 3 years. Her mother was happy since they'd live in a huge house with maid and driver. Met up with the other babies, and tried to take photos of them all together. Failed like this one. They never stop, reach for camera, toys, moms, etc... They'll be walking in another 3 months....

After the visit, Yuika came by to have dinner with Tonchan. She ate fine with Yuika. Seems she's getting better. Ren came home early and helped her and Yuika bathe, but Yuika didn't like some stranger bathing her. Her dad came to pick her up, and they left for home.

Getting better

She's a lot less grumpy today compare to the last 3 weeks! I guess she was probably lactose intolerant, and medicine worked.

Went to hospital to check if she's got better. Dr. said it was just a cold, not the exanthem subitum. Also got her tilactase in case she might temporally became lactose intolerance due to diarrhea.

Got home, and she was playing with a plastic bag of bagel. Somehow she managed to pulled out the bagel, and started biting on it!

9 months check up today. 70cm height, 7.4kg weight. Growth curved is becoming gentle. Ren had to get back to work after 1/4 of the check ups, and couldn't join lunch.

Had SOMEN (noodle) for her dinner, and she through up again before going to bed!! Maybe wheat is not good for her...?

Asked my mother to look after Tonchan while I was attending previous night's wedding party. Tonchan got used to be with her after a night. I'm sure my mother was happy that I asked her help finally.

Went to my old office to say good by to Erika who's leaving at the end of this week. Said hello to the people I used to work with, chatted with other women who's got kids and soon to have one.

The bruise from yesterday is still there, but she doesn't seem like care about it, so I guess it's OK.

During dinner, she dived onto table and hit her right cheek very hard, and it got bruise...! She cried off course, but after I gave her breast milk, she calmed down and didn't seem like suffering pain, so it's OK so far.

Haruka is back in Japan for her US visa procedure, and she and Aki came over this evening. Tonchan was very happy playing with them, and we ordered pizza for dinner. She helped us placing order. Later, Kobayashi family came to join the pizza. Kairi was dressed in her hip hop stage outfit as she had her show this afternoon. Amazing to see Daisuke jumping and screaming until 9 at night, doesn't seem like his energy is running out any time soon. Wonder if Tonchan will be like that in an year...

Haruka was proposed by her boyfriend and he is flying to Japan to say hello to her family. Congratulations!!

だいぶ涼しくなりました

It got cooled off today, and wasn't painful taking a walk. Went to the Hills, and met Matt who used to work with in the same company. He was working today on Saturday. Not surprising for financial company

Her rush is almost gone, but still has diarrhea...
