Tired, but happy. And emotional. And stressed. And relieved. And ecstatic. And worried.

I’m too tired and out of it to write anything resembling a coherent post at the moment (and probably will be for a bit), but I just wanted to make a formal Life & Puppies notation that Baby Girl Sweet Potato has arrived and the three of us are healthy, happy and getting to know one another.

I really want to tell all of you all about how great Meriter was for us, how puppy got super sick the day before Baby Girl joined us, the birth story (though I sorta don’t like that phrase, but I recognize my dislike is totally irrational), the transition home, the breast revolution that began yesterday (holy big boobs! And I thought they were big before!), our baby’s noises and movements, how we’re all getting along, and a million other things. For now, though, I’ll give you a break from my elderly gravida stories and just say to you this: thanks for all of your love and support. It has meant the world. And here’s an observation, or maybe a bit of unsolicited advice: if you tell people you are thinking of naming your child Gertrude, but then you don’t, everyone will absolutely love the name you do pick.
