Still Amazing

This child is still amazing me daily.  She is just so sweet, so confident, so full of spirit.  Her vocabulary is just exploding  Today's word was "Hey".  She'd tap me on the shoulder and go "Hey!"  We went to the commisary and I stopped in front of the milk and she shouted "Water".  (well, close).  She shouts "BARNEY" when she sees any Barney character.  She still chatters away in Chinese most of the day, but I love that English words are sneaking in there. 

Josiah still doesn't play much with her, mostly because he's really at a loss as to what to do with someone he can't really talk to.  He is also smitten with her, just like everybody else around here.  Everytime he gets a kiss he gets a huge smile on his face.  Today, he pulled her on the wagon all the way home from the playground (several blocks).  He keeps talking about how cute she is, too.  He has also decided he's really going to need to learn Chinese!

Yesterday, I took Abby, Lanie, and Josiah on a base sponsored trip to Nagano to visit the snow monkeys.  I couldn't even consider taking Evie along because she is so terrified of all animals, and I didn't want a repeat of the Safari Park. It turned out to be a great decision, because you had to climb up a snowy mountain for about 2 km.  Josiah was completely burned out about halfway up the mountain, and I could not possibly carry him for very long.  If I had brought Evie too, I probably wouldn't have made it all the way up.  It was a treacherous hike too, with all the snow and ice.  Josiah did not enjoy his time at all because he was so tired.  I'm sure just having gotten over a stomach bug earlier this week didn't help.
