Welcome, Baby M.

Baby M

This past Tuesday was “supposed” to be my due date. Instead, I had a one week old baby in my arms.

After a (relatively) smooth labor, Baby M. made his appearance on Tuesday morning, August 23. Little E. has been a kind and gentle older brother and N. and I are somewhat tired but very proud and happy parents. We’re delighted to share our happy news with you all!

    Oh, E. He is just precious. What a beautiful gift your two boys and supportive partner are–and they are lucky guys to have you! I have found such inspiration in your posts about parenting, pregnancy, the academe, and style. Now in the last stretch of my own second pregnancy and trying to make progress on my dissertation, too, I find myself looking to your (and the other academichics’) posts for ideas on how to seek balance and care for myself as well as my loved ones. Your grace and humor over the course of your process–now archived–are a great resource. Thank you.
