I don't think I'd ever been so excited to wake up before the sun.
I rose at 7am and crept around the dark apartment with Fig, fixing some mint tea and an egg, peeling a banana, thinking about what was going to happen in a few hours. I had been told not to eat anything after 6am, which was the first of several erroneous messages I received from my doctor's "secretary." The idea of getting up at 5:30am for...
During my pregnancy, I kept a journal for Ramona that I wrote in each week from Week 5 when we found out I was pregnant, to Week 40. This is what I wrote the night before she was born.

I know it's hard to believe, but we do have other things going on besides the Bonbon. Things like:
- Grandma is recovering! Thank you all so much for your kind words and thoughts about my Grandma. If you don't know, last Tuesday my mom came home from work and found Grandma on the ground. She was moving and responsive, but couldn't remember what happened or how long she'd been down there. She was taken to the...
