or, introducing Ames
Well, Ames is positively lovely. Congratulations!
love you, love Ames, love this newsletter <3
Aw, Ames and I are birthday twins! Congratulations to you and your family!
Many Congratulations to your family on the arrival of dear sweet Ames!! Also, welcome back!
So lovely to read this. You write about it in a way I recognise, the exhaustion, the elation, the miracle of it all, the chaos. I have never witnessed a birth other than the active participation of giving birth three times. I envy you that experience! I’d like to see that.
I just laughed out loud about the momentary loaf of bread/baby mix up. Ohhhhh how I can relate...
Congrats to you all and so good to read your words again!
PS. I too would happily back pay the months you did not charge. Paid leave for all!
So happy for your family Molly! Congratulations and kisses to beautiful Ames.
Like Wendy, I did not realize you weren’t charging during your absence and, if there is a mechanism for retro-paying, please do charge my account for “back pay.” Paid maternity leave should be a right, in my book.
And welcome back! Can’t wait to read more.
I am so excited to read about your new little one! And even more excited to know that you're back at the newsletter. I've missed your unique voice and your unique take on the world.
Molly, I didn't realize you weren't charging us during this time. You deserve paid parental leave as much as anyone else! Thank you for sharing with us--the topics you mention are of intense interest to me, if you ever do want to expand on them.
I am soooooo happy you’re back…however that turns out to be! And so very happy for your new fam! Can’t wait to hear more!!!
Bienvenu au monde petit Ames! Congratulations Molly, Ash, and June!
Hooray for Ames! And Ash! And you! And formula!!!!!! 💘💘💘💘 Sending love and hugs from afar. You guys made it through the first 8 weeks! 🥳
