The other day while Max and I were at story time at the base library a women asked me if I would try out a product for her marketing class, baby knee pads. Apparently they are popular in Japan and Korea for babies learning how to crawl. She said that Americans expect their babies to be tough and was wondering if I would use a product like this for Max. I have noticed bruises on Max's knees from crawling all over the place...but really knee pads? The truth is they would not stay put on his chubby knees. Luckily he was a very good sport about trying them, and tough enough not to need them;)

Shoma together again! Max has his first playdate with his Japanese friend Shoma since we left Korea.
Shoma first arrived and started sucking on Max's stuff, Max just stared at him with a totally shocked look on his face. We will see what happens next week=)
We took Max on his first subway outing in Seoul in the stroller/backpack from Aunt Liz. It worked great! Here we are looking at the electronic timetable waiting for our train to arrive.
