Keila is One Month Old!

Posted on Monday, December 06, 2010 | 0 comments

                       Keila is one month today! Everyone swears that the time flies, and they're right....I think it has something to do with sleep deprivation, for the most part.
   ...Yesterday we all visited Sengen Shrine in downtown Shizuoka (see here if you want details on the shrine:, which coincidentally was packed with couples bringing their babies in for a visit.
  It's customary to bring babies to a shrine when they turn one month old, although I'm not exactly sure what people do besides make an offering and pray. All of the other babies were dressed in fancy outfits or baby kimono, whereas ours was simply strapped to Daddy and basically incognito under her sun cover. Not that I'd planned on bringing her there especially for a blessing or anything, but I have to admit that it'd have been nice to take some pictures of her in an over-priced baby kimono! Maybe we'll do that when she gets a little older...and regrows some hair! Happy One Month, baby Keila!!!
