Welcome home, Mariya

It is Saturday today.

In the morning, PhD students presented their results in front of teachers and students. My PhD student did well.

After the presentation, I directly went to Nagasaka Clinic to take Katya and Mariya out to the apartment.

Mariya was ready in a Russian outfit for babies, which Katya’s mother, Natalia, gave to Mariya.

She was wrapped in a  blanket also in a Russian way.

On the Saturday afternoon, there were few people in the hospital. Katya and I said thank you and good by to only one nurse.

Mariya felt the air outside for the first time. I drove them home.

Mariya was put on the bed by the window.

Maya-san looked puzzled but not upset.

Our new life started.

    She looks gorgeous! Great photos.

    Oh – and by the way, I’m sure now that she’s home that you will discover how much babies cry at night.

    Thank you, Ben. She smiles now, so it is more fun.

    Nurses told Katya to feed Mariya “exactly” every three hours, even Mariya sleeps (and they did so in the hospital). Katya did it home at 0, 3, 6 AM, and it was disastrous.

    Now Katya modifies the rule and it became much better.
    Actually, I do not understand how hard it is to Katya because I now do not wake up while Mariya cries.
