The days have been floating by, and we’ve had birthday parties and summer parties and glorious warmth and so much swimming–ocean, river and pool. Already, somehow, we’re back in the swing of things, and I’m trying to catch up, but mostly enjoying the world as it is, as it is now, now that she is here.
Lee is one of Xanthe’s biggest fans. He adores her. Her birth really was healing, as several of my friends suggested it might be, while I was pregnant. I was skeptical of this idea though–our relationship went through some of its most significant challenges this past year, and I had (once again) resigned myself to definitely having a solo birth (this time). I did not, of course, and I’m glad for that.
Stay tuned for Xanthe’s full birth story, coming up in the next few days, on my podcast (The Bauhauswife Podcast on iTunes, or here).
