9 days and counting…
being a mama is hard work but well worth it. isn’t she lovely?
birthing is also hard work. the birthing center, the midwives and the whole experience was amazing. they were great. in our one week of experience, doctors/nurses seem to have a problem with birthing centers. our pediatrician informed us he is pro-antibiotics. i’m still not sure what he meant by that.
the hyphenated name dilemma only concerns children of two german citizens. if one parent is a non-german, you can name your child whatever the law allows in your home country. one paperwork problem solved, eleven million thousandy dual national paperwork issues left to solve.
i have no idea what’s going on in the world. i think chirac gave a speech. hostages were released or something. the weather is gorgeous. and eventually i’ll get to responding to all of the well wishes one day in the future.
and a link for good measure, in case you are missing the good old posts on race: the segregated blogosphere
