Welcome Home

Week 14
Head to bottom, the baby's 3 1/2 inches long - about the length of a lemon - and weighs about 1 1/2 ounces. Its body's growing faster than its head, which now sits upon a more well-defined neck. By the end of this week, its arms will have lengthened and will be in proportion to the rest of its body. (Her legs still have some growing to do, though.) It's starting to develop an ultra-fine, downy covering of hair all over its body (called lanugo). Its liver starts secreting bile this week, a sign that it's already functioning properly, and its spleen starts contributing to the production of red blood cells. It's also producing and discharging urine into the amniotic fluid, a normal process that it'll keep up until birth. My mom still can't feel the baby's movements, but its hands and feet (which are now half an inch long) are more flexible and active. Thanks to brain impulses, its little facial muscles are getting a workout as its squints, frowns, and grimaces. It can grasp now, too, and it may be able to suck its thumb.

These are all the places I've been to (living and just for a vacation). The only thing is, when you say you've been to the US, it says that you've been to Alaska and Hawaii, but I haven't. Just the mainland.
So, the US, Japan, China, Thailand, South Korea, Guam, Saipan, Bali Indonesia, and New Zealand.


Mia, mommy, and Noah! They arrived home safely on Tuesday!!!!


I finished reading The Chosen!! (See to-do list)

Saturday was our Young Womens in Exellence. We did a slideshow of activities we'd had throughout the year. And at the end, we showed pictures of when we were little. The Nanjo kids were so cute!!! We went shopping on the way home for food for our get-together the next day.

Sunday we had Bishop & Youth Council. We talked about Youth Conference and talked about mutual activities we wanted to do next year. Then we went home and cooked dinner for the Single Adults from the ward that were coming over in the evening. Dad spent like all afternoon cooking this chicken tetrazzini except he used leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. It turned out right and was a big hit! People were begging for the recipie. Luckily, the Nanjo girls came and we had so much fun playing Twister, practicing our Ok!go dance, and showing it off to everyone. Ok!go is so fun! The Nanjo girls are my kindred spirits. <3> Oh, and after we danced, the nanjo girls, and me and Tashi took cookies over to the Miuras house. It was raining, and we walked there, but we had so much fun. We were like singing and dancing the whole way there and back. Oh, and we kept taking pictures on Ribeka's camera:

Here's some Thanksgiving icons!!!

This was our Thanksgiving dinner:

I know it looks kind of sad, but there was only the 3 of us. And the picture's just bad quality because it was taken on my dad's cellphone. We made a lot mistakes without mom, but it still turned out okay. Yay Tashi for making the dinner! Yay me for eating it! haha

Oh, and it's something else today. It's somebody's birthday. Guess who!

Did you guess Vanessa Anne Hudgens?

If you did, you were wrong.

Did you guess Ashley Tisdale?

If you did, then GOSH! you believe everything you see!

Did you guess Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen?

You were wrong again. Sorry, I know this is getting old...

And the real answer is....

Miley Cyrus!!!
