Our Tiger

Arosha being a tiger.Today is the last day of October, and more notably, the Halloween. I am quite ambivalent to this “holiday”, but I think as Aroshka will get older this day might get more fun. I do enjoy seeing people in costumes though, so any trick-or-treaters are very welcome at our home. Too bad none actually came, which means that I’ll have to eat that big bag of chocolate candies all by myself.

A tiger or a pirate? Both?We did not dress Aroshka up last year, but this time around Aroshka’s grandma got him a tiger costume. If it was a tad warmer, I would have dressed him up for the morning playground walk, but with weather being in the high 40s I did not want to risk it. We dressed him in the evening though, and Danya took a few pictures. Look how adorable!

Lost something.On a different topic — I seem to be unable to keep Aroshka from getting little scratches, bumps and such. I noticed on Saturday evening that a small piece of his front upper incisor is missing. I think it was all fine in the morning, and then it just happened at some point during the day. I felt pretty upset about this and I really hope that it will have a minimal effect on his dental health.

Flash is exciting.He also fell down on his scar on Sunday (while squatting and picking up sticks on the playground), but again — I hope it’ll heal in a few days and will not make the scar worse than it is. I keep wondering from time to time if this happens because Aroshka is such an active baby, or because I am more lax with him than many other people with their babies. I just hope that these little things will somehow magically keep him out of big harms ways, and that scratches and bumps are parts of growing up anyhow.

Loading up the car with dad's photo gear.Our Japan trip is coming up. I still can’t fully believe that we’re living in less than 3 weeks. I am really looking forward to it, even though I worry about how both Aroshka and t. Oksana will handle our absence. I mean, people do leave their babies for a short while even at much earlier age, right? From what we read, mid to end of November is actually a perfect time to see the fall colors near Kyoto and Tokyo. Exciting! Danya is doing the majority of our research, but I chipped in a bit on the list of places that we want to visit in Kyoto.
