And The Survey Says....

What survey you ask? Can Jason put the stem on the apple this time around? Cast your opinion in the comments, we find out next month. If you don't know what I'm talking about, you're probably too young to give your vote anyways. And if you can't tell, the left spherical object is the head, the right is the body.

Due Date - November 12th, 2008
Weeks Along - 12
Size of baby in pic - 4 centimetres

Well, as many of you know I was in American Samoa about two weeks ago, but unfortunately our digital camera was either:

a) stolen at the Pago Pago airport terminal
b) stolen on the plane while I was sleeping
c) stolen at the Honolulu aiport
d) misplaced by me somewhere on the way home.

I will tell you I had it in the Pago Pago (pronounced pahn-go pahn-go) airport when I checked in, but when I got home it was nowhere to be found. So unfortunately I have no pictures, when I do some of the stories I'll let you know.

Some of you also know Andrew, Liew and Andersen were just here for a week and a half, and as much as we'd love to post a report, our internet at home went AWOL... just like the camera. So be patient, we'll have a pictoral and video update in the near future!

The Children's Discovery Center

Hooray for Spring Break! I mean, not that it does anything for us directly, but it does free up some of our friends to play. Last week we went with the Nitahara family to the discovery center. It was pretty fun. Ashlyn seemed to like it, even if her face doesn't always express that.

We wanted to make sure Ashlyn knew her geography. There will be no forgetting San Diego for that girl! She is pointing to our current place of residence.

Ashlyn loves fish. She even says it now. "Fsshhhh" These little chairs were so cute. She jumped right in and curled up to a good book.
And, thanks to her cousin Ryan, Ashlyn always wants to play with cars. This little table was perfect.
Playing with Daddy in the tot section.
Guilty as Charged! Judge Ashlyn is just waiting for Judy to retire.
She even got to play like a plantation worker and pick plastic pineapples. She would not let this one go.
Jason was like a kid himself. This was a giant bubble blower. The little kid next to him was fascinated by his bubble blowing skills.

This chair makes Ashlyn look even smaller. Is that possible?

Ashlyn and her best friend here, Kiera Nitahara. They are a little less than 5 months apart, and they have so much fun together!
Kiera's oldest sister, Kyla, is teaching Ashlyn how to play chess. I think she got it.
Ashlyn making friends wherever she goes. She got this worker to help her build with the mega blocks.
Jason with some blocks of his own. Little Ashlyn is trying so hard to help him.
The finished product. He is so proud!

All in all it was a fun day. I don't know if we will ever go back because Ashlyn could only handle about an hour or two, but it was fun to watch her interact with all the people and toys. She is growing up too fast!
