Rikuto Attacks the Camera

In this video, Rikuto shows his curiosity for everything and anything by attacking the camera. If I had let him have it, I’m sure he would have tried to eat it, too! If you can’t view the video, watch it here on YouTube. If you like, you can find me on Twitter at @nick_ramsay. I’d love to hear from you!

Rikuto Wearing New Hat and Mittens

Here’s a lovely picture of Rikuto sat on the sofa, sporting a cute hat, mittens, and “I Luv My Mum” socks, courtesy of his Aunty Emma and Uncle Mark. The colorful clothes he’s wearing are part of Mami’s Yahoo Auctions haul. Mami’s online activities also won him a little Big-o-Ball to go with the larger version he got when we went shopping. Doesn’t he look like a couch potato? 😉 […]

Baby Rikuto at 4 Months Old

It’s hard to believe how quickly time has passed, and how big Rikuto has grown, but he’s already four months old and growing out of clothes with each passing week! Just compare the following video to when he was just three weeks old to see the difference. His neck is strong enough to support his head, and he has no problems lying on his front, on his dad’s chest. He […]

Rikuto Wearing Clothes from Granny

On September 9th, I posted a photo of Rikuto’s new clothes, which he got from his granny and grandad in England. If you go back and take a look at that picture, you’ll see how small he was then. If he had worn the clothes, they would have drowned him! Now, just two and half months later, they fit him perfectly, and even though t-shirt and shorts aren’t really suitable for […]

Rikuto Wins Baby Clothes in Yahoo Auction

Mami recently plucked up the courage to bid in an auction over at Yahoo! Japan. The world’s largest auction site is eBay, but it doesn’t even exist in Japan, probably due to the overwhelming success of Yahoo! Auctions. To stop herself getting carried away, Mami claims to never bid over 100 yen. That’s just 90 cents to those of you who think in US dollars. Anyway, even with such a low spending limit, she won her first […]

Rikuto Playing with his Pooh

Our three and a half month-old son, Rikuto, went for his BCG jab today and cried louder than he ever has. When he got home though, he found one of his favorite toys, the Pooh Carousel, recharged with new batteries. He went crazy trying to grasp the dangling Pooh, and had more luck off-camera, but you can still see how much Rikuto loves his flying Pooh. If you can’t see […]

Rikuto Eats His Own Hands!

Next week, our son Rikuto will be three months old. I previously posted the video Is That My Hand? in which he realized that the hands flapping about his head were actually his own, and he could contol them! Now that he can control them, he does what every baby does - he tries to eat them. Thank goodness he doesn’t have teeth yet! If you like, you can find me on […]
