Up & down OK

Historically, I've always wanted to ride on the bench or stationary animals. But for the first time, I rode the carousel in Golden Gate Park today and wanted to ride on the horse that went up and down.

We'll miss you, a-Ma!

My a-Ma went home to Taipei after a month visit. I miss having her around to play with, take me to parks, and chase kitty cats together! Although, I admit that my parents will probably miss her more than me.

Ski bunny

Mommy taught me how to ski for my first time! We first tried it in front of the Hannah-moto home as she held my hand and back to keep me balanced. We then went on the bunny slope where she ran behind me holding a ski leash. She was impressed by how well I balanced on skis and skied down the slope!

I also had fun making my first snow angel and sled racing.

Here is what happens when you have too much sugar in the morning:

The "bad" stuff

I get so annoyed when people assume that I prefer girly things. I say "I don't like to play princess stuff. I like to play with bad stuff." Playing pirates, Dart eRaider (Darth Vader), Transformers, or Power Rangers is so much more fun! I told Mommy that I want to grow up to be a boy.

A new pet. Or not.

What??! A new pony for a pet, you ask? Sorry, no such luck! But at Steven's birthday party where I'm riding this pony, I got four goldfish as a party gift. My grandma has been bugging my parents to get me a pet for some time now, so she was happy for me!

I really enjoyed eating meals with my fish. I always remembered when it was time to feed them at breakfast and dinner, and I was very diligent at only feeding them a little bit, not too much.

Unfortunately, the fish didn't last long. After the third day, they disappeared. My parents explained that they got sick and they had to take them to the hospital. Mommy didn't have the heart to say the "D" word. Mommy seemed more distraught over the situation than me!

Whee! Snack!

I get excited by the simple things in life.

(p.s. ...I'm still wearing my Chinese shirt from my school's World Adventure Week. I think it makes me look like the Nutcracker because it's red, thus red is now my favorite color.)

A note from my teachers

My teachers sometimes write little notes to my parents. The one today said: "Isabella has been doing a great job with the clock activity. She is learning how to tell the "hour" on the clock. Way to go! We're so proud of you!"

Never let your guard down!

Mommy left town for 5 days while Daddy took care of us kids solo for the first time. Everything went fine! I admit that on the second day I did start whining to Daddy, "I want to see Mommy! This is TOOOOO long!!!" We must have exhausted Daddy because at 1:30 on the third day, he told me he needed to take a nap (Sebastian was already napping). I was not tired, so I continued to play while he slept. And look what he gets for not supervising me - I wrote him a little love note in ballpoint pen - on my parents' bed sheets!
