So it turns out that chasing after a newborn and recovering from a 40+ hour labor is kind of intense, and takes a lot of time–specifically, offline time. 🙂 Pip is almost six weeks old now, though, and I’m feeling better and starting to get a vague clue of how this kid thing works. I totally get why maternity leaves are six weeks minimum though! It’s definitely that long before you can even think of something non-kid–and honestly, most of that is lack of sleep and learning curve. Public service announcement: support longer maternity leaves for everyone. And paternity too. With pay. It’s a necessity, not a luxury.
Pip was born in mid-December at 8 lbs 10 oz in great health. She’s kind of adorable–even the nurses at the hospital said so. Judge for yourself:
Anyway, that’s it for now. I’ll see you guys on the flip side! 🙂
