Come on, little man! Come join us.
I have been winding down my work to take some time with the baby. L just had her last day at work yesterday. As a result I feel an odd mixture of calmness and stress, waiting for this thing to happen. The part that makes me nervous is that trip to the hospital -- making sure someone is here to watch Alice -- navigating the journey itself -- and then finally feeling secure and ready at Mt. Sinai. I am really excited to meet this kid, to name him, to bring him home, to see him as a younger brother, to see our girl as a big sister. I can't wait to know what he will look like and who he will be. The miraculous surprise of Alice was that she was immediately her own person, not necessarily a combination of L and me, but so clearly her own being. I can't wait to see who we get to introduce and welcome into our family.
Come on, little man! Come join us. We have been waiting for you forever.
