It's almost three weeks since the birth of my daughter (she was due about a week ago).
She weighed just under 3kgs. Her appetite is absolutely voracious, so she's gaining weight by the day. It also means that it is very rare for me to be awake and have more than one hand free - all my recent posts have been one handed. I'm sure this won't change for a while.
It doesn't feel right to violate the little one's privacy on a public forum, so until she's old enough to have a say I'll refer to her as "Kuchizamishii" 口淋しい, a term that was often used by her great-grandmother. A loose translation is 'lonely in the mouth'.
