belated announcement

our little levi was born january 9, at 2:45 in the morning.  he weighed 6lbs14oz, and was born without any complications to either of us.

labor was long and difficult – is any labor not difficult?  i’d like to meet that person – and it was not what i imagined and planned.  again, it seems like it rarely is!  but in uncharacteristic fashion, as soon as it was over, i felt satisfied and even proud.  i am usually pretty hard on myself, but i think we made the best decisions for me and our boy.  at some point i will probably write through the whole thing, but for now, i just wanted to get back to the blog!

the four of us are doing pretty well, under the crazy circumstances.  turns out, it’s a lot of f*cking work having two kids!  nate is excited and sweet, and sometimes a little manic, wanting to play with levi while he’s nursing or sleeping or just needs a little space.  i think he’s disappointed that babies aren’t that much fun in the beginning!  we’re gradually getting used to being a family of four, but it’s challenging for sure.

i have a million thoughts about all of this, of course.  but for now, a picture of our new little guy.



  1. Oh yay!! I was wondering about you. He’s beautiful and I love the name. Welcome, Levi! Congrats to all 4 of you.

  2. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I’ve been checking, and checking! Thanks for sharing your news. It’s a lot of work, yes, but you will all soon find your rhythm.

  3. Congratulations! That’s my birthday – a great day to be born!

  4. Oh wow! Congratulations. He’s beautiful. Yes, it is a lot of work!

  5. Hurray! Very glad to hear that everyone is well and hanging in there. I wish your family all the best in learning the new rhythms that a second child inspires. Congratulations!

  6. Welcome Levi!
