Six-Month-Old Marina Grace

This month, we celebrated Marina’s half birthday. Some moments, I think, “Six months already?” and other times it feels like she’s been with us for an eternity. But that’s life. The days drag yet the year’s fly by. This month started out like many others, with lots of challenge from Marina. But then, about halfway…

One-Month-Old Marina Grace

Matthew was working long, 14-hour days. My postpartum hormones were all over the place. I was sore as hell. Breastfeeding took the life out of me.…
