Around Town

Kaito took a trip around town yesterday.  He saw some of the landmarks in the area including the Zojo-ji Temple and Tokyo Tower.  (That's him in the Baby Bjorn.  I'm just the transportation.)  They are gearing up for the New Year's celebration, a major holiday in Japan. 

Cheryl is always behind the camera taking these great photos.  I will try to take over at some point and get a shot or two of her up here as well! 

Here is another shot from the window of our hotel room. 

You can see the dark roof of the Zojo-ji shrine in the center of the photo in front of the skyscrapers. Having been up at various hours of the night, I can tell you that Tokyo never sleeps!

An Update from Tokyo!

So, we've been a little busy!  Apologize for not getting these photos up earlier.  Kaito is doing great.

This is the three of us on Christmas Day!

Here is Kaito hanging out in his crib.

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! We will update again in the near future.

The Season for Good Tidings and Great News! 海人!

The phone call that we have been waiting for finally came unexpectedly on a Sunday night as we sat down to eat a dinner.

The good news has come in the form of a son, Kaito (pronounced Kite-O) who was born on November 21, 2011 in Hokkaido, Japan. His name, 海人, means Ocean Person. He is healthy and doing great.

We are now finalizing plans for when we will meet him. We will let you know when that happens.

Please contact us through the blog for future updates!

With much love, Andy & Cheryl
