near:

  • watching with wonder as my baby transforms from a tiny newborn into a chubby infant — and feeling like it’s a little bit bittersweet, too
  • trying to find ways to balance caring for the baby with other work and projects
  • feeling a little sad about my final postpartum appointment today; knowing I’ll miss these visits with my wonderful midwife

welcoming baby girl Willa Jane Harper!

far:

  • feeling like this was our most amazing, beautiful birth, regardless of the change in plans
  • all of us so in love with her, and each other
  • so grateful for the support and love from everyone around us
