hiroyuki is eight weeks old today. and he's so cute. he's smiling at me and cooing--sometimes he almost laughs! i tried to take a picture of him smiling, but he just kept staring at the camera in a 'what the heck is that??' manner. guess he usually gets his picture taken when he's asleep. i put some pictures up at photobucket, so please check them out!

if you're wondering, the red mark is a strawberry birth mark. poor little baby has one right on his face, between his eyes. so many japanese people ask me about it, so i kind of wonder whether it's as common for japanese babies. i read that it should fade by the time he's three years old...i hope it does.
