Well, our little Isla is just over 9 months old, which means it’s also been more than that long since I most recently published here. And, I don’t where to start.
The quick update: Isla is healthy and happy. She’s developed such a fun, happy and inquisitive personality over the course of the last few months. It’s been the joy of our lives to witness her daily changes and curiosities.
The longer update: when I started this blog 12 months ago, around the same time, I looked over at my husband and (half jokingly) asked, “Wouldn’t it be wild if we were still doing this (quarantine) until my due date?!”
I couldn’t have fathomed that we’d be doing “this” well past my maternity leave for work, and likely Isla’s first full year. I couldn’t have imagined, when I started a blog to simply capture my experience or the last trimester of pregnancy during a global pandemic, that entire pregnancies — from conception well through birth — would fit in that same pandemic.
Yet, here we are.
I’ll plan to share more updates on what the last several months of our lives and parenthood have been like. And also, the very happy news that Dan and I are now both fully vaccinated – a glimmer a light at the end of a very long tunnel.
