It’s been too far long since we’ve last updated our family travel journal. We’ve already been here in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan for more 6 months and not a single post about what we’ve been up to. I feel bad! But now that things have settled down a bit and since its a new year and all, it’s time to catch up with the Cardozas.

We woke up early and broke camp. We had taken showers the night before, so after packing the bags we were rearing and ready to go. But first, we really wanted freshly baked, French pastries for breakfast—because when on bicycle on holiday, we definitely do not count calories…
Every kid has a face. Literally. But some kids have faces they make. The above picture is known as the 'surprised face' and is a Sophie classic.
We booked a stop over in Inchon, South Korea...
Overlooking Da Nang stands the 72 meter statue of Lady Buddha. Nestled on the side of Monkey Mountain, the white marbled statue is referred to as The Female Buddha, The Goddess of Mercy, The Emotional Rescuer, and The Jewel in The Lotus.
The other day we went to the market here in Sa Pa and bought some Rambutans a.k.a Chom Choms (we like that name better.) Sophie loves them! We decided to do a photo shoot of her expressing deep infactuation with them.
Here is Sophie's one year photo shoot! She got some new dresses for her birthday, so we thought we would model them. Washington was the perfect setting! Everything was so green and tons of flowers were in bloom.
9 months is such a fun stage! Sophie's personality is really starting to shine through! She's becoming more active which means she's a busy busy bee. Always finding boxes, baskets and cupboards to dig through and examine the things inside. And she's walking!!! I can hardly believe it!
This was our second ascent to the top of Mt. Timpanogos, but our first time with a baby. I have this brilliant idea that we should hike it each time we get a new kid, that way we can have this cool collection of pictures showing our family growing each time we reach the summit. We'll see how that goes. So far, this is what we have.This was our second ascent to the top of Mt. Timpanogos, but our first time with a baby.

Sophie turns 4 months today! She is now starting to get more and more mobile! She’s able to roll over during tummy time and scoot around on her back. One time I laid her on her play mat and I walked away for a few minutes only to find that she had wormed her way under the coffee table. And so it begins…
Sophia is now a month old! Danny took some darling pictures of her wearing the red polka dot dress I made. She's doing great! She's still pretty tiny and the Doctor said that's fine as long as shes gradually gaining weight. Breastfeeding has been a beast and struggle for her and I, both, to figure out but hopefully it will get better soon.
