A Year With Baby, Life With Baby, Relationships

Month 12 With Baby – Moving On When You Really Want To Give Up This is the final installment in my “A Year with Baby” series. And, it will probably be the realest post here on Baby Kaiju. I can’t stress enough how underprepared I was (am) for this moming thing. And knowing that there are moms out there with multiple children, I’m speechless. How do you do manage?

Baby’s First Christmas – Hajimete No Kurisumasu


A Year With Baby, Baby Milestones, Life in Japan, Life With Baby

Christmas is finally here! After months of waiting, it’s time to celebrate baby’s Hajimete no Kurisumasu (初めてのクリスマス/first Christmas). It’s a fantastic opportunity to dress up your kids in Santa suits and dresses, reindeer ears, and snowman themed anything. Japan already loves Christmas cake, so there’s tons of photo opportunity for baby and their first cake.

Month 10 With Baby – Let The Mommy Guilt Begin


A Year With Baby, Life With Baby

You might remember that I was firm in my decision to focus on my new career as a content creator. In fact, after my Ultimate Guide to Winter Illuminations Across Japan’s 47 Prefectures was published, I was genuinely surprised when people reached out to me for collaborations. #humblebrag. Still, when the opportunity arose for me to be a part-time relief teacher, I jumped at it. Little did I know I was getting myself into a mess.

Month 9 With Baby – Living With A Mini Diva


A Year With Baby, Baby Milestones, Life With Baby

It’s hard to believe that we’re only three months away from the home stretch – completing year one with little Kaiju. She was a bit of a late bloomer, but in this month alone, she’s shown so many changes and mastery of certain motor skills. Just a few days before the 9 month mark, she surprised me by standing unassisted. It was very brief, barely for a second, but I cheered so much! I’m very happy to see all of the milestones. She’s currently got 2 and ½ teeth, with more peeking through!

A Year With Baby, Baby Milestones, Life With Baby

In Month 8 we headed Down Under and had lots of fun in the sun in Brisbane and Gold Coast. A post shared by Tokyo Mama Baby Drama (@iambabykaiju) on Sep 22, 2017 at 5:11am PDT Our last full day in Brisbane was memorable only because little Kaiju had terrible teething pains. And her “kaiju” nickname certainly suits her more and more each day. She’s a destructive, sassy whirlwind! I’m amazed at all the little and big things she can do. Here’s 8 baby milestones she’s accomplished:

Month 7 with Baby – My Toothless Wonder


A Year With Baby, Baby Milestones, Life With Baby

Month 7 with Baby – My Toothless Wonder Well, well, well… At 7 months old, my little kaiju is inching her way towards the one year mark! It seems like every day she picks up a new skill- there’s no limit to what she can do! Month 7 with baby was full of accomplishment and frustrations from both of us.
