And I didn’t die! We’re all good! It hurt like fuck (incidentally, I highly recommend epidurals, 12/10, would invite a doctor to stick a pain-killer tube directly into my spine again), but I have a baby. She’s perfect.

I might be a little sporadic in my comics and such for a while as I adapt to this whole keeping-a-tiny-human alive gig, but do not worry, I have no plans to disappear.

Remember, if you love my stories and comics, check out my Patreon page. You can support my work and get unique rewards! Along with the usual merch you can now get facemasks in my store. Specifically here. (And actually with the whole baby situation, this would be a particularly excellent time to do any of those things if you’ve been considering them).

And don’t forget you can follow me for updates on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram.

    AWESOME! Congratulations, new Mommy!

    Just out of curiosity, did your hubby stand back, horrified and scream “Put it back in! It’s not done, yet!” 😵😫😱🤢🤮

    I always think of an old Bill Cosby routine when his first child was born (back in the day before he turned into a freak rapist).

    That is awesome! I’m so happy for you! I know y’all have been wanting this for so long. What did you name her?

    1. Lucy Grove-Jones Avatar

      Thank you <3 I'm keeping her personal details online to a minimum (I do that with everyone in my life–I don't even name my partner here), so I'm not going to say in a public comment what her name is. Could potentially answer a DM on social media though.

        I’ll pretend her name is Mirabilia which is Latin for a miraculous event. Call her Mira for short. 😁

    HAPPY FOR YOU!! Best wishes on the amazing journey, and may you remember, when you are suffering the acute sleep deprivation, that they really do grow up at light speed.

    This is wonderful, Lucy! I’m a little out of the loop with various things happening, so I didn’t know how far along you were or anything like that, but I couldn’t be more delighted for you! Wishing all of you the very best <3

      Thank you <3 I didn't actually talk about it here until the last couple of months–didn't feel safe.

        That’s perfectly understandable, and I’m glad you’re all doing well. Looking forward to the updates as she grows :)

    AHHHH well done and congratulations!!! 💙 I’m so pleased for you all (including baby and pusscat 😉). (Also sorry I haven’t responded to your message. I will try and get to it in the next week, my brain is just all the fudge.)

    1. Lucy Grove-Jones Avatar

      Thank you <3

      But no pressure on a reply. My brain (and body) are also fudge right now, so no rush. I doubt I'd be able to appreciate a reply properly for a while anyway.

        I was in the middle of thinking “I made a mistake saying next week” when this popped up 🙃 Trying to get the shop updated and running a giraffe fundraiser at the same time was a bad idea for fudge brain 🤣 But I will get back to you as soon as I can 💙 Hope you’re all doing good 😊

    Congratulations!! So happy for you :) you’re going to do great. The first 3 months are pretty rock and roll in my experience but you will get the hang of it! Sending so much love xoxo

    1. Lucy Grove-Jones Avatar

      Thank you <3 I think we're doing okay so far (we're lucky, she seems to be a sweetheart about sleeping and feeding and not crying *too* much) … but that's not the same as feeling like I have the hang of it! Hopefully that does happen with more practice.

      1. Erin of the Hills Avatar

        It will come with time!! I’m glad she seems to be comfortable with life on the outside already. Give yourself grace, you’ll feel more confident before you know it ❤
