The Homecoming

21 Oct

It’s funny – I started this blog because I was off for the summer, bored out of my mind, and obsessed with babies.  It’s been about a year since my last post because I went back to work, took on some extra responsibilities to fill that boredom, and, well, I got pregnant and had a baby.  Now she’s almost 2 months old and at the risk of becoming one of those annoying mommy-bloggers who posts pictures of poo and waxes poetic about being covered in baby vom, I’m gonna give it another go because I am finding that I have a lot of “free” time these days.  Also, while previously my “free” time could be spent doing any activity I would like, it’s now usually limited to a recliner and possibly only one hand.  Thankfully, I have mastered babyholding while typing.

I guess I should tie up a few loose ends:

I found out I was pregnant on Christmas Eve.

Ross matched to internship and residency in Dallas and graduated in May.

We moved in June.

I sweated my pregnant self through the hottest summer on record.

And then the weather changed the week that I had a baby.

So, meet Robin:

She will be 7 weeks old tomorrow, was born in the wee hours of the morning of September 3rd, and she’s pretty awesome.

She enjoys car rides, swimming in the sink, airplaning, and being held.  She smiles a lot, doesn’t cry too much, and generally enjoys staying up late and sleeping until noon.

She has coppery red hair, long skinny legs, and big feet.

And… since this IS shit I KNIT – she of course loves wearing hand-knitted booties and hand-dyed shirts.

You might be seeing a lot about her.
