Dear Maya and Emi,
The days and weeks are flyyyyyiiing by lately! Between school and work and errands and dance class and practicing spelling and reading and so much else, it's hard to find time to sit down, much less go through my photos and thoughts to put them down. But here mommy is, the night before Thanksgiving, taking some well-earned down time to catch up before the holidays start in earnest tomorrow. So here it goes:
You guys love your cousins! Between William's birthday party, a silly few hours hanging out at Grandma's house today, and some family holiday photos we took a couple weeks ago, you two have spent lots of time with your cousins lately. They are so cute and you guys play so well together!
Maya, we took to New York City the other day to renew your Japanese passport. We zipped around the few major sights we could see in the short time we were there and you had such a great time. We enjoyed spending quality time with you, too!
And finally, here are three photos documenting how big you're getting, Maya: a side-by-side comparison of your old and new passport pictures, your 1st grade school photo, and one showing your second lost tooth. You're so grown up!
Time for mommy to get some rest. I love you both!
