welcome to my world

exactly one week ago today, on the morning of may the 11th, kou-chan was born.
it's official! i'm now a dad to a beautiful boy!

to tell the truth, i'm exhausted and about to crash.
i will do an update again soon, but in the meantime here is kou-chan taken on the day he was born.

little kou-chan has only been home for a few days so it's a huge learning curve for us; a great one though. just trying to get into a feeding routine at the moment which is not that easy.
anyway, thanks for your comment :)

what!?!?! you were born on may 11th too?! wow! happy belated birthday!
i will never forget your birthday now!! hahahaha

Galit said...

Wow! That's amazing and so exciting!!!
Prepare for the best time in your life (although with some sleepless nights to go through...)
Have the best time with your little one!

p.s. my girl was born on May 10th 2 years ago... :)

pascale said...

yea, now I will always remember your little one's b-day too :D and even your sister's! lol

world of sekimachihato said...

* Galit
thank you for your comment.
oh yes, the sleepless nights are here, but it really is an amazing experience.
and wow, your little girl was born one day before our little kou-chan. lots of babies born in may!

Congratulations - belatedly. I hope everything went well for K-chan and you - being there patting her brow and sponging up the obscenities that seem to go hand in hand with childbirth - well for me anyway. Japanese nurses would have learnt a few new ones :)

Kou-chan is well cute. I hope having his Japanese granny there for the first wee bit of his life isn't too traumatic for him - you, or K-chan. I just about got stoned down in the street by the local baachans for taking our first out in the pram on a beautiful summers day when he was two weeks old.

Is your MIL staying until he's 100 days old? In our neck of the woods it is just 30 days of darkened rooms and not seeing the light of day. Whatever.

Good luck with it all. The adventure has begun :)

oh my gosh!

gingerbee said...

Oh, oh, oh, CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU AND K-CHAN! :D He's really beautiful! Did you pass out cigars or something? Heehee. I'll definitely be scouting something from here to send to little Kou-chan! :D

10 hours of back rubs and brow blotting was starting to take its toll on me but as soon as i saw that little head start peeking out all my energy came flooding back.
come today it's another story... i'm back at work and in need of a deep sleep. i guess all will be forgotten though when i get back home and see little kou-chan.

re the japanese granny, i'm blessed and have one of those rare mother in laws who are super easy to get on with. she said as long as her grandson can speak japanese i'll be in her good books for life.
and nope, she's only here for 20-odd days or so, then we are on our own! bit of a scary thought at the moment...

* Make it Easy
thanks aron!

world of sekimachihato said...

* gingerbee
thanks you!
no cigars (although i got given one!!) but i did pop open some bubbly to celebrate!
my life is all about babies at the moment so i hope i don't bore you...

Mary said...

oh i missed this! i've not been on the internet much of late.
CONGRATULATIONS to you both!!!

world of sekimachihato said...

* Mary
i was starting to wonder why you haven't posted something on your blog for a while.
hope all is ok in your part of the woods.

Mary said...

yes, all is very fine in my part of the world thanks.
i've just been super busy!
i'm off to japan for a couple of weeks at the beginning of june. it'll be my first trip there and i'm super excited about it!

hope all's well with you guys. i'm sure kou-chan is getting cuter by the day!

world of sekimachihato said...

* Mary
wow, off to japan huh!?
you are so gonna love it over there. which part of japan are you going to?
if i can be of any help, let me know and i will see what i can do.

Celine said...

Your world must be turned upside down now! (but in a good way!!)

world of sekimachihato said...

* Celine
