Earlier this year I bought myself a little electronic keyboard so I could make up some children’s songs for my ESL classes. Like most things I spend my money on, it rarely got used… until now.
Watch Rikuto play the piano for the first time ever at four and a half months old. I’d say he’s pretty good for his age!

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 still loves his dummy – this is his second and it’s wearing out fast – but Mami has started spooning him milk as he takes that first step towards eating.
Here’s a close-up video of little Ricky. I filmed as much as I could before he fell off my chest (just kidding!). If you can’t see the video, you can watch it here on Youtube.
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 the cold weather we’re having, he spends most of his time sleeping under the kotatsu anyway (not literally, of course!)
