Well, Mrs Gankomon's parents, who were with us for the week preceding Thanksgiving returned to Japan, and the house feels a touch emptier. Mrs Gankomon's mom was with us for the past three months, and she was invaluable, especially in the period immediately succeeding the actual birth, wheen Mrs Gankomon was not really energetic, and didn't feel up to doing a lot of things around the house. Especailly once I returned to work, Mom was a great help. Dad came over on the Sunday preceding thanksgiving and he was also a very welcome addition to our little household, as we got to spend some quality time together as a family. We took them over to SF airport on Friday, and they took the redeye back home. Fortunately everything went well, and they called us to confirm they got home safe on Saturday evening- they had to go through South Korea, hence the delay!

Chibiguri has been growing. Mrs Gankomon took him to the doctor today for his regular checkup, and we expect to receive more growth statistics. He has been growing at a very rapid rate and considering all the milk he sucks up, I am not surprised. He has proven to be a very capable eater, suckling Mom at regular (and irregular) intervals and preventing her from getting sleep on a regular basis! This has proven to have unfortunatel effects on Mom's temerament, though she does try to keep herself as upbeat as possible...

We have also noticed that Chibi is a rather particular eater as well. He is constantly being urged by Mrs Gankomon to eat a lot and then sleep a lot, but he prefers to nibble, sleep, nibble, sleep and nibble, sleep. Thus he can be constantly asking for more, yet he rarely takes a long nap- at least not when I am present. Mrs Gankomon confirms that Chibi does not exactly keep a regular schedule! We hope that will change as he continues to grow.....
