It's been a while since I've updated the good ol' blog, but I like to think that introducing little Penelope to this crazy world is a good enough excuse...
Born on July 21 (right on the due date), she's been every bit as wonderful as one could expect. Every cliché about parental love and how one 'falls in love the minute one sees their little face' is true. In spite of the 14 hours-long labour, the home birth abruptly ending in the hospital- not to mention a very freaked-out taxi driver- and no sleep, I was mind-boggled by how happy I felt (Jacob sharing every bit of the intense emotions) and how intensly I loved the little sweetie dozing off on my chest. She had just popped out, but she certainly felt like no stranger. It was little Penelope, alright.
So fast-forwarding 6 weeks, our little 6 pounds bundle is closer to 10 and showing off her first coos and laughter and making her parents topple over with glee. I don't know where all those weird studies about parents being unhappy come from :P
I'm looking forward to every step of the way with her by our side.
All that said, since this is in theory an art blog, Penelope has been letting me draw. I've just been lazy with the scanning and posting... ;)
