On February 13, we welcomed baby E into our family. She is amazing, and perfect, and fits into that place in our lives and our arms that was empty without her, without us even being aware.
It is remarkable to have such pure joy in our family again.
I have repeatedly made the conscious decision not to process Henry's absence as we deal with the hormonal shifts, sleep disruption, and general life stress of having a newborn. I will do it when better equipped.
I do know that just as I will always be Henry's mom, I have always been E's.
