Meet the Kid

On March 29th, 2010 I peed on a stick, saw two lines and cried.  I cried not because I was happy or excited, but because I was scared.  I was scared of my life changing, of not being able to afford what I was facing, of the challenges yet to come.

On December 8th, 2010, I cried for a different reason.  For not being able to imagine how my life could ever have existed without this little person.





Meet Vivian May.

Thanks, everyone! Yes, the hair was quite the surprise! Look for lots of Vivian to come on the blog in the future! She's named after my Great Aunt who passed away when I was younger - I'm so glad people like the name!

Yay! She's adorable, her name is lovely, and... That hair! Geez!

VW: teltr — v. Let the girl know. "I'm sure Vivian May will understand how much she's loved, but don't forget to teltr every day anyhow."

Okay, I just have to say it.

"Doctor! The power's out!"
"Tell me something I don't know."
"Well... The emergency generators are failing too."
"I was being rhetorical."
"So what do we do?"
"Hmm... Aha! The new baby — Vivian May Madam-Clerk, just down the hall! Rub some balloons on that head and the static electricity will carry us through until the generators are back online!"

And... scene.
