Kat and I are now doubly parents. Earlier this week, we welcomed Rebecca Alison Meyer into our home and our hearts.
We chose Rebecca in honor of Kat’s late grandmother, a grand old lady of enormous chutzpah who taught Kat her near-legendary bargaining skills. The middle name, Alison, honors Kat’s mother, who we’re grateful has lived long enough to receive the honor.
I’m behind on posting this because not only do we have a newborn to handle, but there’s also Carolyn to consider. Carolyn is an amazing big sister and more than eager to help us, but she has a schedule to keep and needs help with some things, as all children do. That makes free time almost totally nonexistent, which means time to write posts is similarly at a premium.
As we gradually settle into a routine, I expect to get back to the things I had cooking, but for now it’s pretty much all in abeyance while I concentrate on our newly enriched family.
