That little cutie is the newest member of our family: Alexander. He was born exactly 3 weeks ago on June 26, weighing 6 lbs and 12 oz. He was full term, which many of my darling readers know is a blessing after my first pregnancy. I had to have a cesarean, from which I’m still recovering, which is why I’ve been missing for the past month or so. My stay at the hospital was the usual affair, with a lactation nazi thrown in for good measure. Actually, 4 out of the 5 nurses that took care of me during my longer-than-normal stay were absolute angels, wonderful in so many ways. I always have the utmost respect for all nurses, and people like Lauren, Kara, Kit, and Sevan from the Holy Cross Hospital’s maternity unit are the reason why. I really can’t say enough good things about my nurses. Now that I’m home I wish I could have brought one of them with me (although hubby is doing a good job).
Just know that we’ve all been watching True Blood, scratching our heads about some of the idiocies (wtf is an ifrit?). I’m actually enjoying this season, but I may be the only one! Hubby is predicting what’s gonna happen, which can be both fun and annoying… we’re both wondering about Salome’s true intentions, even though we have her figured out (mostly).
I hope to pick up on my stories soon, and hopefully I’ll be able to continue the True Blood commentary for what’s left of the season. Thank you all for bearing with me during this special time.
