Meeting His Cousin Nao
she's 4 days old

Anthony's cousin Nao (七音), a little healthy girl, was born on Monday to his Aunt Namiko and Uncle Shogo (Uncle Shogo being Anthony's mommy's brother), about nine months nineteen hours after they exchanged vows. All are doing well.

Anthony felt that she was heavy, because, it turns out, that he felt the weight of responsibility in holding someone so tiny. As for me, used to lugging around an eight year old, Nao felt about as heavy as a helium-filled balloon.

Exquisite baby! And it seems that just yesterday he was holding another little cousin Felicity.

Great practice for holding Claire, though she will seem gigantic by comparison!
