Sweet Baby June

ivy-juneAlthough I mentioned it in passing on my last post, I will formally interrupt this silence to tell you that my husband, two sons, and I welcomed a baby girl into our family on November 15. Her name is Ivy June (we call her both Ivy and June – one month in and we are undecided whether she’s an Ivy or a June) and she is very sweet and mellow. It was, generally speaking, an uneventful labor and delivery. The only complications were expected and brilliantly handled by the hospital staff (I was very grateful). Until I get into some sort of routine, I’m sure I will pop in and out of this space. I do miss talking about books with other bookish adults, but I love newborns as well. Until then, I will go about my day as if I’m not ruled by three tiny dictators of my own making. I am in control. Completely.

Happy reading and happy holidays to all.

    I love everything about this! I’ve got a niece named June (we call her Junie) and I think Ivy is a sweet pretty name too. Either way, she’s got a nice moniker. Congrats!

    So much love to you and your family. I look back at newborn photos of my sweet baby E and wonder where the hell the last 8 months has gone. So fun, and don’t forget to take care of yourself too (hard, I know!). :)
