I have spent five days bouncing a baby, reading magazines, walking through new places along the Bay of Fundy with my dear friend Johanna. The time in a family's life right after a new baby comes home is very special. Everyone is getting to know the baby, and adjusting to having an extra person in the house. It is a time for slowing down, taking care that everyone's needs are met, and little else. I understood as soon as I walked in to Johanna's (beautiful!) home that I was entering a very sacred space.
I missed my family and am happy to return home to them, to my own nest. Having the chance to welcome Wesley to the world, to connect with my friend in her new east coast home, and to write another page in our book of adventures together is very, very special in our continuing history.
