• celebrating one whole month with Fiona! (can it really be?)
  • still so fascinated by the miracle of her being
  • feeling really curious about parenting practices (infant feeding, diapering) throughout history


  • knitting like a madwoman, trying to finish her coming home blanket before we go in to the hospital on Sunday
  • feeling scared about the labor, and knowing that this is all part of the process
  • incredibly grateful for a husband who cooks, cleans, listens, supports, loves, hopes, and holds me when I cry
