One week ago David and I joyfully welcomed a baby boy into the world. The birth process had complications, but we’re all home now, healing and healthy. More than anything, we’re feeling over-the-moon happy to have all three of us together.
At some point, I hope to have some words to wrap around the experiences of the last nine months: a hard pregnancy, a complicated but wonderful birth, traumatic first hours, the joy of new motherhood, and the way marriage has kept me afloat through all of it. Till then, I’ll say that motherhood changes everything (but you’ve heard about that part) and also nothing. We’re still here. Showering and reading the New York Times, just blearily and with more tiny cuddles.
I’ll leave you in the talented and capable hands of Maddie and the team. For now I’m going to spend time with my two guys: one big, one very small.
