Presenting…Bunter on the Outside!
Bunter was born according to plan on Monday. Rather than an unflappable gentleman’s gentleman, it turns out my uterus was hosting an amazing little she baby.
We are both doing quite well–so well, in fact, that we were released from the hospital a day early. (Perhaps they got tired of me advocating for myself [read: telling every person who came into the room to fuck the fuck off and let us sleep].) Since then I’ve been happily cocooned with my infant daughter, doing laundry, eating a great deal, lashing out at my spouse, staring at my baby, taking a thousand years to complete simple tasks, all behaviors that that are strikingly familiar!
The babies have been delightfully charmed by and curious about their new sibling.
I am a middle girl, and it was always a source of comfort to me that even though there were lots of other children lying around, I was the only girl. I am glad that Bunlet is a middle boy. I am glad that Bun Bun is my precious eldest daughter. And ever so glad that this dear, dear creature–this little morsel of perfection who came despite my plans–is my babiest bunny.
