Mark My Words

Writing, flying and yawning my way through motherhood

Welcome to the World, August! November 13, 2008

Holy moly! My dear friend Alysia the Literacy Goddess has given birth to a 9 lb. 13 oz. baby boy. 9/13 is a feat for any woman but Alysia is a mere 4’10” tall. What in the world was Mother Nature thinking? I got this in a picture text around midnight last night. August Morgan, you officially conclude the baby boom of 2008. We’re so glad you’re finally here!

I get upset about how little I can accomplish in a day since Henry was born. But I don’t want to give up moments like this. I know this is fleeting, these moments when he takes his afternoon nap on my chest. There’s no feeling in the world that can compare to it. I didn’t know it until he came into my life, this is what I was born to do.
