Somethings always out a smile on my face. Joining that list is my little girl’s hair. Not only is it soft and fluffy, but it is also pretty punk rock. It’s current natural state of being is to stand straight up and kind of lean towards the middle, giving her a baby Mohawk. Combine that … More My Little One’s Mohawk
I hold my daughter and once again I marvel at how tiny she is. My hand stretches from shoulder to shoulder and I’ve had apples larger than her head. She nestled into me and the world is one again at peace. Contentment flows through me. It’s energy that I want to breath in. Her hair … More Two Months and Five Days
For most of the day I’ve been help captive by a very tiny warden. She’s forced me to parade while carrying her for hours on end. Food has been prepared on demand, and if it does not arrive timely enough, loud reprimands ensue. Even now I am forced to rock endlessly as she lounges. If … More Help!
Some things you want to go on forever. For me, my baby girl sleeping on my chest is one such feeling. She has only existed outside of her mother for just over two weeks, and yet she feels like an essential part of my life. Like I’ve known her forever. I love this little girl … More Contentment
The truth is I was going to write about something else other than my not-quite-a-week-old baby today. Not that I had anything specific in mind, but I was thinking maybe a week straight was too much. Then two things happened. The first is my mother, who is in town to help us out for a … More My Mom is Mighty
Our little girl is five days old, and for her first five days she stayed with her mom at the midwifery. But today was the day we got to take her home. That in itself was a small adventure. We don’t have a car, nor do we have a car seat for such a small … More Coming Home with Airi
Airi’s grandmother, Mima, safely arrived in Japan today. Very few things are as moving as watching your mother hold your child for the first time. It was beautiful to see her hold my son for the first time almost for years ago, and it was beautiful to watch her hold my daughter today. And now … More The Arrival of the Grandmother!

And of course, one more sweet Airi picture. If you enjoyed this post, please like my Facebook author page and become a patron through Patreon. Or if you like podcasts … More Some Baby Pictures
Last night March 3rd at 11:24, my wife, Rika, gave birth to our daughter, Airi. Airi weighs 2944 grams (6.5lbs.) Mother and baby are both happy and healthy. In the coming days, I’ll have the full story ready for you. For now, just a few pictures. If this motivates anyone to follow me on Instagram, … More Welcome to the World
As the upcoming birth of our daughter grows nearer, I keep thinking back to when we were blessed with our first child. My wife woke me early at some grey area between late at night and early in the morning. The baby was coming. She called the midwife. The discussed contractions. When she got off … More 4 Years Ago: The Birth of Our Son
