I’ve been MIA from the internet lately, as Nick and I welcomed our little girl to the world a few days ago! She came in at 6lb 9oz and 19 inches long, and her name is Nora Wang Nelson. But we’re going to call her “Nori” for as long as she allows us to ; )
Everyone tells me this sweet newborn phase flies by too quickly. As brand new parents we’re trying to take in every cuddly, beautiful, poop-filled, sleep-deprived moment, but it still doesn’t quite feel real that she’s here and she’s all ours. With each day we’re discovering new things about her, as she grows both physically and in her little personality. She’s part Chinese, Filipino, and mixed European – and we can’t wait for her to learn more about her heritage as she grows up.
I got several questions about Nori’s birth story and can’t wait to share that in a bit along with hospital bag tips (now that I can actually speak to some things I found useful)! And no matter how you give birth, the postpartum period is no joke physically, mentally and emotionally, so I might share my experience with that too if there’s any interest.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you all so much for your kind messages and comments and for being with us on our journey to her. We’re so excited to see where she takes us next.
