Dear Blog

Hello Blog! How I've missed you so! But you see, I've been busy. We made a person!

I have a really cool photo of said person when she first arrived, but as she is still attached to me at that point, I'm afraid I'll have to keep that photo from the sometimes sensitive viewing public.

Oh Blog, I missed you. I wanted to write, but I was afraid I'd jinx the pregnancy, and I couldn't bear to do that. Not after the miscarriage from five years ago, not after the risks and fears and tears.

But now I have a little girl sleeping next to me, three months old tomorrow, and I think I am free to write again. She's even out of the so called "fourth trimester"--the one where she's still such a baby you really can't expect her to do stuff like sleep without being swaddled.

Anyway, I just thought I'd say hello and maybe get reacquainted, if that's all right.

Life is good.

This is Ella Grace at her baptism, Aug. 1, 2010, at University Lutheran Church in San Diego.
