    Hope you all had a pleasant weekend. We’re going to skip ahead a few lines. In between #4 and #5, he talks about how he was scared papa might drop him, and how papa had a strange face going. So, what did he (the baby) do next?

    だから僕はパパと握手をした。はじめまして パパ。

    1. What is だから?

    2. What does パパと握手をした mean?

    3. What does はじめまして mean, and when do you use it?

    4. What does the whole sentnece, mean?

    1. That’s why/because

    2. shook hands with papa

    3. “nice to meet you”, literally, “it is the first time” so you use it when you first meet someone

    4. “That’s why I shook hands with papa. Nice to meet you papa”

    gotta love babies with a good sense of humor =)

    1. It means therefore.
    2. Shook hands with dad, or papa.
    3. It means nice to meet you.
    4. I think it means, “Therefore, I shook hands with my dad. Nice to meet you, dad.”

    I’m still a beginner, so I had to look up what 握手 was. Is that cheating, xD? I’m happy that I was able to understand that sentence, except one thing.

    I was pleased at how little I needed rikaikun for this one.

    1) So; therefore
    2) Shook hands with Papa
    3) Lit: Beginning; usage: “Pleased to meet you.”
    4) So I shook hands with Papa. I’m pleased to meet you.

    *ANSWERS*

    You guys know what’s up.

    だから僕はパパと握手をした。はじめまして パパ。

    1. What is だから?

    So, Therefore

    2. What does パパと握手をした mean?

    “Shook hands with Papa”

    と is the particle that makes it mean “with”

    3. What does はじめまして mean, and when do you use it?

    Means “nice to meet you” – use it when you meet someone, of course.

    4. What does the whole sentenece, mean?

    ” So I shook hands with Papa. ‘Nice to meet you, papa’ “

    Ok, as always: first – answers, then – check:
    1. I’d translated it as “that’s why”.
    2. I think it means “I shaked hands with my father”.
    3. If I’m not mistaken, it means “Nice to meet you”. It’s used when introducing yourself.
    4. I’d translate the whole sentence as “That’s why I shaked hands with my father. Nice to meet you, father”.
    [update]
    1. Failed, but not too much, I think.
    2. Close enough, I think.
    3. Seems fine.
    4. Well, all in all, I’d say close enough.
