You may have noticed XIHA Life has a new logo. What do you think? Would you believe the idea for the logo came from our little Fei!

As I wrote before Fei loves to look at plants. Flowers are ok, bu...

Guess what a 10-week old baby loves to look at?

Brand New Dad's Life von Jani

Fei has already shown a lot of personality. He's quite much like his mom; he knows what he wants and wants it now. He's not a tough baby to handle though. As long as he gets enough attention he can be...Erfahre mehr

Daddy's boy!

Brand New Dad's Life von Jani

This week Fei has been very much a daddy's boy. He started to want to be in my lap a lot, being unhappy at almost everywhere else. Kind of funny but also really nice, of course.

The first nurse checkup!

Ward 61

Water breaks - going to the hospital

Brand New Dad's Life von Jani

We had a few false alarms where Wen felt contractions and we thought if this is it... but then it all quieted down. Today she woke up to contractions at 4AM and couldn't sleep after it, but no real ac...Erfahre mehr

Saturday is the day!?

Still no baby, but now I have a very strong feeling he will be born this coming Saturday. My method is quite un-scientific: I was born two days before the due date and for some reason I just started t...Erfahre mehr

It's almost time!

No strike!

First snow!
