Fulfilled in Jesus

Our pilgrimage with our Beloved in Japan -- Yoko & Ramone on the journey with Jesus!

Our Newest Blessing!


Welcome to the world, Timothy Tsuyoshi Romero! Our baby boy was born on Tuesday March 20th, 2007, at 4:16 (or "16:16") in the afternoon, JST. Contractions started at 4:30am, Yoko woke me at 7:30, and we got to the hospital at 8:30. Serious labor lasted two hours with no drugs to boot, way to go Yoko!

'Kangaroo Care'

After a quick swabbing of the baby's nose & mouth, the first thing they do is put the baby on Mommy's chest. They call it "kangaroo care" in Japan and it really helps bond & calm both baby and Mommy. Minna gambatta! Otsukaresama!

First Family Picture

The nurse/midwife took this picture of us. You can't see Timothy's face, but that's okay because it's all scrunched up like a drunk man's face on a bar, hehe.

Papa Ramone

Then they let me hold him. With other friends' babies, I've always been a little apprehensive or extra cautious, wondering if maybe it was better that I didn't hold them! It was a little awkward or delicate, and well, you know. But with Timothy it felt good!! No problem, no worries. I wanted to hold him! (Hey, friends, it's not that I didn't want to hold your babies! It's just that I exercised some caution with yours that I wouldn't with mine...? Hey, wait a minute!)

With Aunt Michi

Yoko's younger sister Michi patiently waited outside with her ear to the door of the delivery room, and they let me go out to show her the newborn baby. I let her hold him, and she cried. (^_^) She'll be a great aunt. Especially because she can cook really good cakes! (Yumm...)

The Stats!

The stats are in!

Born: 2007 (Hesei year 19) March 20th, 4:16pm (16:16)
Weight: 3408 g (7 1/2 lbs)
Height/length: 54.5 cm (what's that in inches?)
Chest: 33.0 cm (ditto this in inches?)
Genkiness (energy/movement) 1 min. after birth: 9/10!
Genkiness (energy/movement) 5 min. after birth: 9/10!
Status: Very cute. In fact, beautiful. My boy!!!!

Kampei-chan?

After a better cleaning, they let me, Michi & Yoko's mom be with him for awhile while they tended to new mommy Yoko. We photographed him incessantly with our cellphones (and my digital camera). In this picture he looks like a Japanese comedian named Kanpei-chan! (See this picture and this picture.) "Ka-iii-no!" He kind of shed this look the next day, though. But actually, here he also looks like Yoko's father, Takayoshi. Yoko wondered, "Does this mean that my father looks like Kanpei-chan?"

Cute grip

Cute grip, don't you think? His hands were a bit wrinkled and chalky colored. And he probably didn't know what to do with his hands. Probably still doesn't, come to think of it! I think he has my long fingernails. It'll make all the girls jealous when he gets older...

Signature feet

For the first identification marking (I guess) they put the parents' family name on both feet. In our case, "Romero" which is written in katakana, not in kanji (that is, in simple characters instead of in the more complex Chinese characters). In katatana, "Romero" almost looks like "square-X-square".

First Rocking

He was very peaceful as I sat next to Yoko in the delivery room (where she recovered for two hours). He seemed to sleep while I rocked & lullabied him with a few worship songs. Actually, after a little crying at the beginning (which Michi said sounded like a cat more than a screaming baby), he got really peaceful. Not much crying that night. Good boy!

Cute yawn

Yawning! His yawns are so cute. But his forehead & brow wrinkle in such a funny way! Where are his eyes, man!

After the lullaby

Papa after the lullaby.

Name tag

Day 2! Yoko chose a little sheep sticker they had to write his name on (see this post for the meaning & history behind his names).

Day 2 with Mama

On Day 2, Timothy showed us his lung power! And what power he has! He cried & cried, and wouldn't stop. If it wasn't feeding time, he sometimes still cried. Here he starts to nibble or suckle on Yoko's pajama sleeve.

Day 2 with Papa

Day 2 lullabies with Papa! I think it worked only briefly. Later on it worked its magic again, but at this time he was doing his own vocal chord exercises! The craziness hath begun!

With Mama again

When I gave him back to Yoko, he seemed to calm again.

The cutest feet in the world

Now Yoko gets to gaze upon the cutest feet in the world... which kicked her in the ribs so much! While she or the nurses hold him, he often likes to kick, but for me he doesn't seem to do the boot-to-the-head attempts much... yet.

Somewhat calmer after sugar water

We're basically going the breast-feeding route (natural, baby!), but they gave us some sugar water to feed him and he liked it. He was a bit calmer after that.

Stuck in a wink that you can't get out of

He's got this perpetual "wink" ... well, not a wink, more like a stuck cockeye look? He isn't opening the right eye much yet. Maybe it was that suction cup thingy they put on his head to help him out, haha. But I'm sure in a few days he'll enjoy looking (or glaring) at us with both eyes.

Family!

Sweet family! (And sweet pajamas to suckle on!)

Parents!

God is wonderful. He has blessed us so much. I don't know how to describe all the things I'm feeling. I don't know how to sort it out. It all comes so fast and sometimes I just tear up soaking it all in. Even though I'm at home now (and need to go to bed!) I am overwhelmed. I'm so blessed, and my heart is bursting. Thank You, God. Thank You.

Cranky again

Probably after noticing that no actual milk came from Yoko's sleeve, Timothy resumed crying again. But isn't he cute!



"Maybe this soft white thing will give me some milk..."

Grandma Kayoko and sleeping baby

Later on just before visiting hours came to an end, Yoko's mom stopped by again and this time she got to hold him. She was a bit afraid of dropping him, but we forced her to take him, hehe. By this time he was very calm. Actually, when they put him back in the nursery and Yoko went to her room to rest for a bit, the nurse came back and told us that Timothy had been crying in there until they turned on the music! Then he got calm and sleepy. Looks like we've got another music-lover in the family!

Asleep when Papa goes home

At the end of Day 2, it was time for me to go home, and I left my beautiful wife and son together. He was peaceful, but it was approaching feeding time. Sure enough, as I went down the hall to the elevator I heard his beautiful--but oh so loud--voice cry out again, haha. I'll sleep with my digital camera again tonight. Can't wait to see them again tomorrow.

Thank You, God, and thank you all for your prayers & love.

In Jesus' love,
Ramone

    You have good sperm! LOL. Congrats man. Welcome to the fun! I loved his crying face. We'll definitely have to fly up one of these weekends and visit you three. We'll let Aiden (now 3 1/2 months) and Timothy play (and by "play" I mean, "let Aiden drool all over everything.")

    Hi Beautiful Family!

    I just got your email and looked at the pictures of Timothy!!! I love the pictures!!! Wow! He's so precious… and looks like he has a good pair of lungs on him! You both must be sooooo excited and thankful to God and proud and exhausted... all at the same time!

    Get plenty of rest while you can because your life as you have known it will be forever changed because if this precious child. I pray God's blessings upon you and your precious little family at this time and ask that this child bring you into an ever deepening relationship of intimacy with your heavenly Father... that will bring forth fruit in a greater desire for deeper intimacy with Yoko and Timothy... Somehow God uses the love we experience in the birth of our own children to give us deeper insights into the love He has for us and wants us to share with others. I pray that the deep insights you already have been given into His word only deepen as you experience more and more of the Father's love for you.

    Much love to all of you in Christ with many prayers of thankfulness,

    Hazel

    Timothy is very cute. He changed so much in just 1 day! Fascinating. So do they just keep morphing from one thing to the next until they're a certain agae? I guess those of us that don't have kids will have to find that kind of stuff out along the way.

    Thanks for sharing your wonderful moment with us!

    Dearest Ramone, Yoko, and Timothy, Thank you so very much for sharing your very special time with me and allowing me to be part of your family. It is with Thanksgiving and Praise to Our Father in Heaven; that He has Blessed you all with this special gift, named Timothy Tsuyoshi. What a wonderful gift from God. You and Yoko will be wonderful parents. I can't imagine what it must be like to hold your own infant son in your arms. But I have been Blessed by your sharing the pictures and your thoughts at this special time. I can feel the love that has already developed between Father and son; and Mother and son. And you all as a family!!!!!!! It has been wonderful to see the change in Tim Tim, with each passing day. He gets cuter every day. I think his birth will be the starting point of a whole new phase in your family and will bring new meaning to the love that you and Yoko share. I think it will also bring a new and wonderful understanding of Our Father's love for us. And the sacrifice that God made in sending His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins. It brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it. I know God will use you all in a special way to reach others for Him. I know Lori, is finding it difficult to be here, in the USA, and not there. She can't wait to hold her new grandson in her arms. Wish you all lived closer. Hope Yoko is getting a lot of rest and is less sore. I'm glad Michi can share this time with her new nephew. Hope all continues to go well and I'm hoping you will continue to keep me updated. Love you all very much, and am praying for you all. Nancy

    So thrilled for you all. Your little guy is just as handsome as he can be. When I think of a Timothy, I think of the dearest man in the world, my dear husband who is also a Timothy. Wishing you all the joys of parenthood as you begin this journey in Jesus Christ. Just think, a totally new little person gracing this planet that has never been seen or known until now (except by his Father).

    Our Love in Jesus,

    Hi Ramone, Yoko and Tim,

    We are exceedingly glad to hear the wonderful news of the safe delivery of healthy and cute Timothy. Thank God all went well with with the delivery. I realized how much I have taken the blessing of a the delivery of health kids when I happen to see an infant with some kind of defect. Well, has He not promised to be with us in our going in and coming ins and even turn any evil plans by the devil for us into rich, fulfilling blessings. For sure He keeps His rich promises to us.

    How good it feels to hold your own child for the very first time. I remember wanting to look at my first baby every clicking second, just like a poor boy does to his first photograph. We share in the sweet joy that the arrival of Timothy brings to the family at large . We are so happy for you!!Actually wanted to post a short comment right after grandma Lori's but my pc seems to be having some headche now.

    May Jesus continue to provided your family with divine protection, guidance and fortitude needed to take care of and steer Tim in His footsteps. Hopefully we would have the chance to meet Timothy sometime in the future.

    Remain Richly Blessed and guided by the Lord.

    Congratulations on the birth of your precious son Timothy. God has given you both a wonderful gift. I really like the name you chose. (It's the same as our 4th son who is now 9 years old). I checked out your blog site. Great photos too. Be blessed and relish every stage of Tomothy's growth. Believe me, it will all be behind you faster than you can think. Our children grow up so fast. Life itself sometimes seems like a blink.

    Hello to all three of you!

    Good friends, my thoughts have been wandering your way of late, trying to imagine what you are up to. Now I know! I love the pix of young T.T. They remind me of times long ago when, one by one, four wizened-up little faces showed up in my family. Four of them in six years, and all quite ugly, to be honest. But beautiful too, especially when that first smile broke out. You've got loads of fun ahead of you, and unfailing entertainment 24/7.

    Glad to see the healthy baby, isn't that a fulfillment in Christ?

    May he be as his parents, walk in the way of Righteouness, giving his life to Jesus, and may God just cover him with His blood, His love, His joy and peace. God bless you!

    Great pics of the newest Romero :)

    I pray he will grow strong in the Bible, and lead his parents back to the truth in Jesus Christ.

    Love you!

    Hi Daniel (Danny?),

    Thank you for your well-wishes and prayers. Like the mother and grandmother of Timothy in the Bible, we pray we'll be parents who will raise our son on Scripture alone, because in the Gospel of God's grace is found "the full counsel of God" as Paul declared it and later mentored his spiritual son (Timothy) in it. All of God's prophets testify that we have forgiveness and salvation in the imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ our Savior. It is God's testimony which He has given about His Son -- that we who believe in Him are saved. I can't wait to share these things with our little Timothy.

    If you have any questions about my reply here, please email me. Thanks, and blessings to you in Jesus Christ and the Sabbath-rest of His love.

    In Him,
    Ramone
