Mara sprouted some brand new teeth and I can’t help sharing. They’re barely visible, but trust me as a nursing mom — they are present and they are cute. Kee-yute. And I love the way babes eat. Not too many humans can get away with spitting sweet potato in your face or throwing that leg up on the table like a boss.
Unrelated, today marks exactly one year since we’ve made our cross-country move. We’ve come a long way from those first few weeks, now having beds and hot water and all. And despite my resistance and myopia, we’ve carved out a home for ourselves. It has been a year filled with joy, doubt, uncertainties, and vulnerabilities, but when I pause and step back for a look, I see that it is all trending positive.
