Making a Person from Scratch

Even though I'd escaped the dreaded nausea associated with the first trimester, the exhaustion hit me hard. I've never been a nightowl, usually snuggling under the covers around 10:30 or 11 to read The New Yorker or whatever novel was sitting on my nightstand, but as a newly pregnant woman, I found myself checking the clock at 7:30 wondering if 8 p.m. was acceptable bedtime not just for four-year-olds but also 32-year-olds.

When Saskia was pregnant with Harper B. and complained about the constant exhaustion, her husband Kevin exclaimed, "Well of course you're tired: you're making a person from scratch!"

Hey Cuz' - just checking into your blog to see how you're holding up and if there's any new news or silly ramblings along the way.

Mom, Gram Vellotti, Patrick and I are all waiting eagerly to get a status update on the whole life creation process and your well-abouts.

cheers and hang in there, we're all pulling for you (more like heckling from the peanut gallery; but hey, its love all the same right?)
