Elizabeth frequently talks about her cousins, especially Maria. "Change", Elizabeth will demand. "Do you need a diaper change?" we'll ask. "No! Aya. Change!" "Does Maria need a diaper change?" "Uh HUH", says Elizabeth, delighted to have made us understand the problem.
So Elizabeth was thrilled to go to visit "Tiss" (Chris), "Tata" (Erika) and "Aya" (Maria) for dinner on Sunday. (Yukiko is apparently hard to pronounce.) Erika was obviously pretty excited to have guests too. She wrote out invitations and made custom placecards all by herself.
