The past week has been pretty busy for us. Kai has been trying to walk, any chance he gets, and me and Aya have been trying to keep up with him. After he started crawling, it took him about a week to realize he could pull himself up on things: doors, chairs, couches, legs, etc.. We are continually amazed at how strong Kai is; he never flinches when he is walking around and if he happens to bump into something there are few tears shed.
Kai was also out a couple of weeks ago with Mommy at a local Mom’s meeting. There he met some new friends, and had a chance to play with other babies his age. Kai got along great with the other kids, and Aya told me he was really inquisitive when he was with them (kid is going to be a genius, I’m telling you!). I guess he tried to eat one kid’s hair and pull another baby’s diaper off, the tell-tell signs of brilliance.
We also have been breaking in Kai’s new highchair and he seems to enjoy it so far. It’s hard for him to argue with us if we are feeding him, food is one of the many things Kai enjoys throughly.
That about wraps it up. We officially have 3 weeks until we arrive back in the U.S. and Aya and I have been starting the preliminary steps to board the plane: baby ticket (check), passports (check), ear plugs (needed), and the list goes on. I posted a lot of new pictures of the Kai-man from June. Head on over the the Flickr website to check them out.
