My old friend since high school, who has two daughters, had another grandson from her younger daughter. She has another two more grandsons from elder daughter. Both of her sweet daughters were my students of English when they were high school girls. Although My friend's house is less than one and a half drive away from my house. I haven't seen her and and her daughter long. So happy to see them and healthy new-born boy baby. As you might notice, he is a little bigger than average one month baby.
Sorry, normally I don't like showing up much... but I liked this shot.
(we call a picture with 3 people "three shot" in Japanese English,
maybe this one is "four shot", haha)
I was a bit scared because not much experience holding that little one p;)
My hubby made soba and had them together for lunch. He got soba ready for elder daughter's family living close to her as well; I really missed seeing them. Hubby looked glad that they praised his soba and said really delectable still holding a flavor of buckwheat. We enjoyed first chat in a long while.
It is quite common in Japan that mother take care of her own girl's childbirth and let them stay with her about a month. I think it is quite reasonable thing to do for baby's mother, I wonder if it is also other countries culture as well. I've wrote about 里帰り "Satogaeri, Going back to home town" here .
