Lucia is here!

October 5, 2010

Just wanted to let you all know that Lucia was born this weekend--we are now home from the hospital and trying our best to recover and adjust to our new life!

Like I mentioned earlier, all of October has been "scheduled"--there are a ton of great guest posts and a few that I wrote in advance. Hope you enjoy!

I'll be back in November, hopefully--please excuse me if I don't get back to your comments and emails very quickly this month! I'm going to be enjoying some baby time.
Chrysanthemum Big Book
You probably know this book, but Chrysanthemum  by Kevin Henkes is one of my favorite books that really captures how a parent feels about naming her child. You want that perfect name--I was reminded of how much I love this book as Juliet and I read it a few nights before Lucia was born. If you haven't read it yet, check it out! See you in a month!

Vanessa, What thrilling news! I hope you are both well, and that you are managing to get some sleep. Enjoy and remember to take lots of photographs. I thought I took a lot, but now that the years have passed and I look at photos of those early days, I wish I'd taken even more because it is such a precious time for you, baby and the rest of your family. Best to you, Minnie
