Today was Haruka’s 3rd birthday. Since we went to Disneyland last Wednesday, we didn’t do anything too spectacular today. I did buy her an ice cream cake from Baskin Robins, which she only mildly liked it. I have feeling that maybe she was too full to eat all of the piece we cut for her, so maybe she’ll eat more tomorrow.
Haru’s been asking for a little doll called “Popo-chan” for the longest time. Everytime we go to the department store or if she sees it on TV, that’ll be the only thing she’d talk about about for the rest of the day. So the other day, while we were shopping for close that she’s be wearing to Disneyland, I sneaked away and bought he the doll she wanted. It had been in the car the whole time just in case she started poking around in the closets and other hiding spots. Needless to say, she was happy about getting Popo-chan. We originally planned to get it for her for Christmas, but she really wanted this one, so we decided to make it her birthday present instead.
Every year, I look back on old pictures to see how much she’s grown, and it never ceases to amaze me to see the change. Last year, she was only able to sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star in English, and now, although she does not speak too much English she does understand a lot. She’s got a pretty sizable vocabulary, but I think she is too embarrassed to speak it.
