Mia has taken to start saying “i’m sick” whenever she’s in the car and tired of riding in it now.

Maika recognizes “do you want a bottle?” She was crying and I said to her, “do you want a bottle?” and she immediately stopped whining and toddled into the kitchen to point at the bottle.

Maika loves spilling her bottle onto the floor. I didn’t really care in Japan because we were leaving and throwing away the carpet. Now I find I have created a monster. Mommy’s going to have to get all jiggy on her now.

Mia is getting better at “playing by herself” now. she’ll go into her bed (temporary air matress for now) and look at a book for a while. it’s nice.
