Welcome, Wren!

It has been almost a year since my last post. Not blogging has actually become a new source of guilt – as if a working mom needs another one of those! Instead of feeling guilty I decided to just write a quick entry. What better way to kick off a mommy blog entry than with the great news that I had a baby!

Welcome Wren James! Wren is my second son and is basically an angel! He sleeps, he takes a bottle, he giggles and coos…did I mention he sleeps!

I am happy to say that I had Wren as a VBAC – which was a personal goal of mine. I was really happy with the whole birth experience. It was a long labor (is 80 hours long? Uh yeah.) but worth it!

Miles loves his little brother and never fails to kiss him gooodnight.

I took four weeks to cuddle and enjoy that new baby smell. Then I started working again – mostly from home at first, but gradually have gotten back to being at the University every day. More on that later. Suffice to say it has been a fantastic year. I’m looking forward to 2017!

    • Thank you so much for your comment! I am grateful that society has moved past the days of seeing children as a distraction for working women. Having kids has actually made me a better and more productive scientist.
