She was in fine "Zadow" form. Impatient and a little early to the party

So I gave birth.

Yeah it was interesting... more for the fact that it was so damned fast and for the most part textbook. I've never been "textbook" or normal in any other thing in my life, and for this...this amazingly, painful, wonderful, exhilarating, and exhausting thing... I was for the most part textbook (with the exception of the speed of delivery.)

Now I'm a mom. I'm not sure what that means, or how I'm supposed to be. Strangely enough I'm ready to go back to being me pre-baby... almost. I've had my share of breakdowns, my share of nervous moments and a few frenzied nights. Otherwise I vacillates back and forth between freaking out and pure joy.

I know after next week I'll have more insight to this whole strange biological miracle called birth. For now...I'm just over the moon to have had 7 hours sleep last night. (in chunks... but it still counts)

Congratulations! By the way, I've always associate the name Zora with you. I don't know why but I do. Maybe it's the Zadow. Is she named after the write of Their Eyes Were Watching God?

Congratulations again,

YES!!!! OMG you are one of the few who has actually put 2 & 2 together! Yes Zora Neale Hurston is one of my idols, and I wanted also to get the Z in there somewhere.
