Welcome to the World

The baby arrived on the 3rd June 2009 at 8.45 am, one day early.

He is perfect.

I'll be taking a summer break from blogging. Hopefully not from reading (thank goodness for audio books!).

Quick recommendations for two great summer reads.

Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler and Love Struck Summer by Melissa Walker

Great review from Amy here and an Interview with Sarah Ocklar here.

Melissa has a great blog you should check out too.

Have a fun summer, see you in the fall!


  1. Congratulations!!!!! :D

    Enjoy your blogging break!

  2. Oh my goodness! Congratulations! Take it easy and take any opportunity to sleep! See you when you resurface.

  3. Congrats!
    Have a good break!

    P.S. "The Book Thief" on audio is AMAZING! I know it may sound like a downer, but it is truly a beautiful book to listen to.

  4. Congratulations! enjoy, enjoy, enjoy this time, as crazy and new and wondrous as it is, and mindboggling and scary and tremulous.

  5. Alexa, congratulations!!!

    Enjoy the snuggling time. :)

  6. I will second those two picks -- really enjoyed Twenty Boy Summer especially and also Lovestruck Summer. Congrats on the baby!


I adore comments, so thanks so much for taking the time. I'll try and return the favour :D
