Since we were just here 6 months ago it doesn't really feel like we even left! It's amazing how normal it feels to be back in Yokosuka. Though the area is familiar the time change is always an adjustment. It's ironic, before leaving for Japan it was so hard for us to get to bed before 11pm no matter how badly we wanted to but not it's a battle to stay awake until 8pm. My body is also convinced that 1:30am is when I'm supposed to wake up so I fight to stay in bed until 4am. Gabriel hasn't seem to be too bothered during the evening with all this- goes to bed at 6pm and wakes up between 5 and 6am but he is tired during the day so I know he isn't getting entirely restful sleep yet.
Not only has Chris had to switch time zones but also job shifts- he's working graves the next 5 weeks. To say that things have been a little off may be an understatement but it's worth the cost of being here. You can tell in Gabriel's attitude that he's bothered with not seeing Dad as much- Gabe is napping when Chris gets home and he goes to bed about an hour after Chris wakes up.
While Chris is sleeping during the day I make sure to get out and about to let Gabriel run around and give Chris some quiet time.
Gabriel Quickly makes friends with any child at the park who has a ball. And by make friends I mean he goes and takes the ball away when he gets the chance.
The Japanese kids have so far been pretty sweet about it- they've been great about sharing.
We've already indulged in our favorite eats. The restaurant Nirvana may or may not be one of the main reasons why we keep coming back to Japan...
They serve an incredible curry and naan that is Napoli opposed to Indian. I initially gave Gabriel some cheese naan and was spoon feeding him the curry but he saw how we were dunking our naan so he wanted his own bowl to dunk in too.
We don't have any plans until next weekend which is when we hope to visit the Yunessun Spa Resort, Hakone, Japan. This resort is filled with different themed hot springs! We wanted to go last year but wasn't sure with having a little baby- Gabriel will have fun playing in the water now!
