I've been keeping a secret. It was so sacred and delicate that I couldn't bring myself to announce it to the world just yet. My nature is to keep big things safely guarded within my small world.
Well, I think it's time to divulge.
I baked something special; perfectly sweet and irresistibly delicious.
It's our new baby girl.
She made her appearance into the world just in time to ring in the new year, a mere 4 weeks ago. Everything went smoothly, thank G-d, and her brother and sister are enamored with her.
I feel so incredibly blessed to be able to experience such a miracle. My pregnancy was quite challenging in the way extreme fatigue, debilitating nausea and watching two hyper kids can be. My days melted into each other and my main goal was survival. Meals were mostly haphazard, a careless combination of whatever was in the fridge. I had no strength and felt helplessly uninspired. The few times I had energy to cook and create, I came back eager to share, because I love being here.
