Introductions

Hello all you lovely, amazing readers!

If you were paying any attention at all, you might have noticed that I haven’t posted anything in about two weeks… not here, not on my Facebook page. And for good reason…

The final stretch of pregnancy is crazy. And painful and stressful and just really tiring. In a lot of ways I was very ready to be done, but in some ways I was also sad to see that season end. That’s the way life works though, right? One season ends and another one begins.

What I’m trying to say, albeit very clumsily, is that our new season – the one we’ve been anxiously waiting on, is finally here.

Our sweet daughter, Adaline Nicole, was born the morning of September 9th.

Obviously we are completely head over heels in love with her. I know I am a little over-attached and obsessed with her, even when I’m delirious from the sleep-deprivation and exhaustion. I just can’t get enough!

She was ten days early and I don’t think any of us were really expecting that, but we’ve been so blessed to have family and friends helping us make the adjustment to… well, everything. This is our first baby, we don’t exactly know what we’re doing, right? Ha!

Thankfully, there is no super dramatic birth story or craziness. I am so happy with my midwife/birth center experience – I was able to have the natural, unmedicated birth that I wanted with the people I knew and trusted around me.

So far, Adaline has been an absolute joy to have around. We’ve had a few rough nights of course but she definitely tends to be a happy, content baby – probably not that hard when you’re as adored as she is though.

My time management is a little all over the place at the moment (still adjusting!) but I will definitely be sliding right back into my writing projects as soon and as much as I can in the next few weeks. Now that my brain is slowly resurfacing, I’m missing it!

I’ll see you all early next week!


Love and kindness,

Katharine Marie
