Ladies and Gentlemen, I’m once again pleased to announce that my husband and I welcomed a darling daughter into the world last week. (Please ignore the blue sleeve cuffs. All of our tiny newborn clothes are hand-me-downs from a family that had two boys!)
And, just as before, our little family is doing well. Labor was a very speedy affair, due in large part to me being convinced that I wasn’t actually in labor until about three hours before she arrived. I’d never heard that second babies can come fast, but it was definitely true for me!
We’re settling into life as a family of four, and so far it’s going better than I could have ever imagined. As soon as things gain some form of normalcy, I hope to get back to my sewing machine. There’s a nearly completed camisole that’s already waiting for me to figure out my new routine. Until then though, I’m just going to enjoy these early days with a new baby, a wonderful toddler, a loving husband, and a supportive family.
