I’m over the moon to share this news: baby boy is here! He came two weeks early this past Saturday. I was so totally clueless about labor and delivery that, after 2 hours of steady abdominal pain (which I attributed to another health issue I had experienced earlier in the pregnancy) I thought Tyler and I should go to the hospital and see what was ‘the matter’. I didn’t even think to bring my carefully packed overnight bag but, ever practical, I did decide to bring my glasses
It’s a snowy day here and I’m cozied up inside with some work and a book. The children who live downstairs are off and yelling from the stoop to the sidewalk and in the stairwell and I hear all the excitement from up here while under strict orders from, well, everyone, not to step foot in cold and ice and snow while in my ‘delicate’ (arguably more like elephant) condition. And even though I want to go outside and play more than anything, I’m begrudgingly following the rules.
