Hideo got to come home from the NICU on Christmas Eve afternoon. He is so sweet-tempered -- he sleeps pretty well and is eating really well. I forget how fun it is to have a newborn baby -- but boy it's tiring, too. But I think everyone is adjusting well, and my pain is definitely better.
Emiko is getting used to having a baby brother. She will look at him, say, "Baby!" and then she tries to steal his blanket. Occasionally she tries to poke him, but she says, "Gentle. Gentle," while doing so. Very cute.
We all had a very Merry Christmas -- hope you and yours are having a great holiday season!
