Oh, friends. Oh, readers and friends and people finding this blog by googling terms like “my mother is crazy” and “Game of Thrones best thing ever” – how I have missed you! Let me start with first things first, of course – my beautiful baby boy Duncan was born on February 6th. I went into labor naturally (so tremendously better than induction, don’t let anyone tell you differently), had a lovely labor, a horrifying and dramatic delivery followed by a five day NICU stay for Duncan, and a bitterly cold, Polar-vortex dominated, relatively sleepless maternity leave all of which have resulted in this gorgeous, happy, love of my life (in a tie with his father and sister):
We have so much to talk about! I will probably write a post about Duncan’s delivery. I discovered the HBO series Game of Thrones while on maternity leave. My daughter discovered the movie “Frozen” and it has taken over our entire world. I am back at work and it is awful and awesome at the same time. But for now I think all of that can wait – I think, instead, I am going to publish this post in recognition of my return to blogging with a promise to return to regularly scheduled program from now on.
One more picture of the handsomest boy imaginable:
