The New Normal

bathtime – three weeks old
Originally uploaded by telfandrea.

Cate is three weeks old today and Telfer and I finally feel like we are settling into life with a baby. I feel better for sure, although I am still anemic and a little weak. Mendy stayed with us until last Wednesday and was so much help…I have a feeling she won't be able to stay away for too long.

Telfer also had vacation all of last week. We took Cate to the Yard House for lunch to celebrate her daddy's birthday on Tuesday. On Thursday, we took Cate all the way into Los Angeles to attend her first literary event (Marilynne Robinson, author of Gilead and Home, at the LAPL). I get a little type A (is this a surprise?) taking Cate out into public, but we figure, really, our window of opportunity for doing some things (literary events, long lunches) with a child is a small one…

  1. Cute pictures! Now it is time for Cate & Neva to meet. 🙂 Cate has gotten to meet lots of her family–so fun. Eden & Cora are dying to meet her as well and feeling a little jealous that mommy & Neva get to come down and they don’t. Thankfully Thanksgiving is not to far away. Love to you 3…


  2. Doing anything with a baby will make you a crazy type A, you don’t even have to leave the house. Trust me, this is another super type A talkin’. Glad you’re feeling better and life is “normal.” About time Telfer had some vacation. We’re counting down until next summer’s NY playdates.
