Aside from missing our beloved friends, I am going to miss the fun of having a “gaijin” (foreign) baby in Japan. Everywhere we go folks start talking to us because of our crazy, hammy, outgoing daughter. She is truly a people person, smiling and waving at strangers. She makes life fun. We have met so many new friends thanks to Sophie. She brings joy to folks around her, especially the elderly. Here are a few photos of our funny little girl, Sophie Miya.

I love oranges!

“You think this thing can hold me? Haha!”

She loves going for walks in her stroller!

This is Sophie first thing in the morning – she pops up with a huge grin and giggles!

Look at me with my bowl!

All smiles with the sakura (cherry blossoms)
