She's ba-aaaack. That was a long trip to Mommyland but I have survived (barely) and brought back with me a gift...introducing the bun straight from the oven, Little Deelish Dish! My best creation yet. Sigh. Sob. Fall asleep on the spot.
I'll spare the gruesome details but to catch you up, we were due the 12th, set to be induced on the 19th, when I went into labor the night of the 14th after days of Braxton Hicks contractions. And to think I was planning some "Why-Isn't-My-Baby-Here-Yet Apple Muffins" the very next morning! By that time we'd already welcomed our beautiful little boy into the world—screw muffins! It was a very long night followed by a blurry few days in the hospital, but we're now home and so, so happy. He's a week old today and a total delight. I mean, duh. All the snorting, squeaking, spastic arm-throwing, fire hose-peeing, round-the-clock cuddling, coma sleeping, and endless diaper-soiling included. Just the best.
I hope you'll excuse me while I come and go...we have friends, family, paternity leave, and a precious new babe to enjoy! Thank you all again for the kind words and support. Lots of love from our new family. xoxo
