Ichiro x 4 #inspiration

Ichiro x 4

Note: visually explaining how we chose our baby name “Ichiro” as it came from:

  • Ryoko’s paternal grandfather (who died at 49, my age now)
  • Ryoko’s dear university sensei who first took her to Russia and Indonesia as well as taught her all about trees
  • The soon-to-be-hall-of-fame baseball player (who I got to see live many times with Mariners and is a symbol of courage, grace, persistence and skill and defying expectations and awesomeness)
  • Finally a little 3-D scan of our Ichiro in process (expected June 18th)
