Last week, after 40 weeks and 2 days, Baby Girl James was born. She’s the cutest little cupcake, and my husband and I are ecstatic. Her big brother, however, is on the fence about whether he approves of the new addition to our family. My mother says it took me two years to forgive her for the birth of my sister, so maybe it runs in the family.
While I don’t have a ton of time to read these days, I started a book in the hospital before delivering the Cupcake– The Kalahari Typing School for Men by Alexander McCall Smith (the fourth book in the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series). I’ve really enjoyed every book in the series so far, and it’s the perfect light-but-not-too-light read.
Meanwhile, I’m re-honing my skills in typing with one hand, and pretty much doing everything else with one hand while holding a baby with the other, too. Oh–and I’m also discovering the wonders of late-late-late night television when up for feedings. Who knew the Tonight Show re-runs at 3a.m.?
