Settling in

So, how was our first week with Taiko you ask? It was pretty darned good. We had a lot of support from our friends, and were able to devote a lot of time to snuggling with Taiko and making sure Taipan and Taisim got a lot of play time.

Taiko spent the majority of his week sleeping - here is a shot of him mid-week:

The first part of the week was rainy and cloudy and pretty yucky outside. Fortunately the sun came back on Wednesday, and I went on my first outing with all three kids. We went to our subdivision's playground, which is a pretty short walk away. The kids rode scooters, while Taiko slept in the sling.

Going to the park has been a daily activity since then, though today is rainy again so we likely won't go again until tomorrow.

Taisim was playing with my sling, when I reminded her that she had one of her own, so we got it out, and she carried her baby around for a bit too:

And here is our precious guy taking a nap. He's six days old in this picture. He sleeps most of the time, and Yuta and I have been able to get decent sleep as well. Our bedtime routine is a bit in flux, but I think we'll find our new normal pretty quickly.

Both of the kids love love love their new brother. Last night Taipan suggested we give him a nickname, and after much discussion Taipan has nicknamed Taiko "TK". They are all very sweet together, and I can't wait to watch their relationships grow.

congratulations to you all, and welcome Taiko! He's beautiful, and it's so sweet to see your older kids with him.
