Ja ne, Tokyo!

Lots of fun times in our Tokyo apartment. I will miss it, especially this sunny perch!

Cinderella was home!

I really enjoyed Tokyo Disneyland, my second trip to a Disney park. I was especially happy to visit Cinderella's castle and find her home (I especially liked meeting the prince), after my previous disappointment at the Anaheim castle! I wanted to watch the Lilo & Stitch parade repeatedly (I had no idea who they were, but I never saw a parade before so it was cool), and when Cinderella's dress lit up in the Electrical Parade, my eyes popped in awe. I actually seemed to enjoy some of the rides this time. I got a princess phone with a "It's a Small World" ringer before coming, so my parents only had themselves to blame for me already singing it repeatedly before riding it. Autopia was a highlight because I got to race cars even though I technically wasn't supposed to drive. But in the end, I really liked Tom Sawyer's Island, even if it was just like one big playground!

To the right - I learned how to say "cheese" the Japanese way after seeing enough local tourists do this.

Floor time

I've been putting in a lot more floor time now that my brother is spending more time there and less in my parents arms.

Is this how Cinderella syndrome begins?

Thanks to Cinderella, I am totally into wedding dresses and dancing! Check out my "wedding dress" and "tiara"! Sebastian and Daddy play prominent roles as the Prince. Mommy keeps telling her feminist version of the Cinderella story, but she sighs at the possibility that this is the start of Cinderella Syndrome.
