SHE is here!
Talk about surprised. We thought Plum Baby was going to be a boy, and we were wrong. A lovely, strawberry blonde peanut arrived on March 7th at 8:11pm. Labor was no fun at all, but it was mercifully short. And when the doctor told me that I could have my baby in one push, I took it as a challenge, and DID.
I know the juggling will be crazy, but right now it feels good. I feel good. Babykins – I’ll call her Plum Bee – is great. Our little house is full and busy. Mr. Pickle Pumpkin is amazing with her (though we have hit a spell of crazy whining – hopefully it is just the adjustment to Plum Bee). This is the best gig ever. And I’m loving the thought of having maternity leave to spend with my little girl. Still getting used to that – my little girl.
That doesn’t even begin to describe it.
