Its been lovely having the in-laws over. Its wonderful for them to meet Ty and for all of us to have some family time together.
The night they arrived, Fumiko couldn’t wait to carry her Grandson. Ty is pretty fussy for a couple of hours in the evening, but the pacifier has come in handy to calm him down a few times.
In the morning Ty kept Grandpa company while he did some yoga. 🙂
Fumiko and Herb brought over LOTS of presents for Ty from relatives and they gave us an adorable blue knitted set of winter wear for Ty. I couldn’t help but put the hat on Ty much to his displeasure in this hot weather.
Thank you Fumiko and Herb for filling up half your suitcase with things for Ty!
We took a trip to the beach, Shimoda. It was quite a long drive and we all were pretty tired when we arrived, but the views of the beach from the hotel etc were spectacular! More beach photos coming later.
On the way back to Tokyo we stopped by to see my family. I was so happy to see everyone, especially Chris who I haven’t seen in quite some time! It was also wonderful to get help from Mom and all the girls in caring for Ty. Again, he was SOOOO fussy since it was the evening and it took him a couple of hours to fall asleep. Unfortunately, these were the only photos I was able to take since I had my hands pretty full with Ty. Its was nice for both Grandparents to spend some time together. Thanks mom and Rumi for being perfect hosts and encouraging me that it’ll get easier (concerning Ty).
Finally, after a bath, 2 hours or so of off and on crying and feeding, he finally started to settle for the night and Jen put him to sleep like a pro!
Ty is really starting to change. In just a couple of days he’s become A LOT more alert during the day, smiles and talks a lot which makes the sleepless nights and fussy evenings a little more bearable.
More photos coming soon.
