Thing 1: I created and birthed a magical tiny human:

Elin_bluemat

She was born just over two weeks ago, and let me tell you, street drugs have nothing on the waves of oxytocin I've been riding. Cats, I am utterly infatuated with her. And sleep-deprived. And typing one-handed. Please forgive coding issues & all.

Thing 2: My national grant proposal was recommended for funding. HOLY TOMATOES. It's going to be hard to beat getting funded in the age of Trump-idiocracy.

My baby's birth and the phone call from NSF happened within 3 weeks of each other! I don't know if I am equipped to deal with the rest of this month, but I feel like I should maybe buy a lottery ticket...

THIS IS SO AWESOME.

Congratulations on all fronts.

I commiserate because I defended my master's thesis and found out I was pregnant with my first in the same week. LOL.

Thank you so much for the update.

Whoa! Double win! And hugest of congrats on both parts. She is adorable and I am glad the oxytocin is treating you well.
