31 Cent Scoop Night at Baskin Robbins

The deal was just too good to pass up. We went to get 3 scoops each and Saya enjoyed our little outing on a Wednesday night. We got there at 5pm to beat the rush and it worked out perfect. No lines and lots of ice cream to go around.  We ate dinner after we got back and then had some nice ice cream for dessert.

Here is daddy and baby with our ice cream.

Saya wanted a taste too! Still a bit too young but maybe in a year or two.

Saya's First Jinbei San

Our neighbors Mr. and Mrs. Hiraga just came back from Japan bearing a wonderful gift for Saya. Her very own Jinbei-san. It's still a bit big but she looks so cute in it. Her daddy has two sets as well so I hope to get a picture with the both of them in their jinbeis.

Saya and Her Spoon

I decided to let Saya try to use her spoon during meal times. At first she wasn't interested and just wanted to be fed, but now she wants to grab ahold of her spoon and shove it in her mouth. The food doesn't come off the spoon all that great yet, but I am sure she will be a pro in no time.

Here she is in action:

Taking a Break after Baby Support Group

Today we went to the Parenting Place in Broomfield to meet other moms and babies. Saya did really well and had fun watching other babies. Mommy also made some friends as well- Very productive day. Saya was a bit worn out from all the stimulation and took a break on the couch.

Since we had such a great time, I plan on going every Tuesday from now on.

Bathtime with Daddy

Here is baby taking a bath. Her hair has grown more so we can create new styles for Saya.

Saya and Laundry

Saya was extremely interested in the laundry as I folded. She got a hold of Jeff's underpants:) They were clean so don't worry.

Saya and Her Soft Blocks

Costco Wore Me Out!

Saya passed out on the way home from Costco. She's cute even when she sleeps. Sweet Saya!

You Want Me to Do What?

Here is Saya attempting to play with her ball. We tried to play catch with her, but she hasn't gotten the hang of it yet.

Chewing Everything in Sight

Another round of teething just begun. Here she is chewing on her swing.

Nothing But Smiles

Scooting Saya

Saya just started to scoot backwards today. I think it's the start of her crawling. How exciting!

We returned from shopping and she started playing on the floor and I noticed her moving further and further back.

We'll try to post some pictures or a video soon.

New Toy Ball

We went to a toy store and bought Saya her first ball. She seems to like it so far. The dogs are eyeing it as well.

Baby in Diapers

Saya started playing with her diapers.

Saya's Balloon

Saya got a balloon yo-yo at the Japan Day in Boulder. She loves it and tries to chew it and scratch it. It give me the chills when she does it but it's fun seeing her enjoy it.

Saya's Finalization Court Date - June 10th

Saya's court date for her finalization has been set. We are scheduled for June 10th at 8am. 8am is a little harsh but definitely worth it. Can't wait for Saya to be officially a Neima.

Mommy Needed a Nap

Baby gets up in the middle of the night and so mommy sometimes needs a nap. Ryder doesn't seem to mind it one bit as he gets to cuddle and get some much needed attention. Doesn't he look comfy?

Stoked About Stokke High Chair

Yes, we got the Stokke Tripp Trapp high chair for Saya. It was the best one out there and she deserves the very best. We set it up today and she had her first meal in her high chair tonight. She seemed to like being at the same height as everyone else. We liked the Red color so we had to get it. The chair grows with her so hopefully she will enjoy it for many more years to come.

Jeff is holding her straps as we still had to adjust them a bit.

Straps are adjusted and snug. Ready for dinner!

Apples and squash with some oat cereal- Yummy!

Saya and Daddy's Ear

Saya discovered ears, not her but others. Here she is discovering her daddy's ears:)

Bye Bye Infant Carseat. Hello Seat Attachment!

We removed the infant carseat attachment on our stroller and now we have the regular seat attachment. Saya didn't mind the switch very much, so we were pleased. She gets to see a lot more on our walks and trips to Costco now that she is not facing the sky or ceiling. Ok, we were in a bit of a rush to head out the door on our walk and didn't really consider her outfit.

We know, the pink jacket, red pants and pink sun hat looks a bit odd in a blue stroller. I'll work on her outfits a bit more- More shopping! (Don't tell Jeff:)

Saya's First Avocado

Now that she is 7 months old, she's ready for avocados. She didn't seem to like them at first. Here's a shot that we took today.
