when dev and i first found out that i was pregnant we decided that while i was in the somewhat fragile early stages, we’d keep the news pretty quiet. which was incredibly hard for both of us to do. one day dev suggested i start writing letters to ‘nori’ (his codename for our baby) so that i could at least have some kind of outlet for my hard-to-contain-excitement. here are those letters:
i decided to keep up the letters once phoenix was born. i write them sporadically and often at 3am which is the only quiet time i can find to write at all. i simply call them my ‘letters to phoenix’
and then once zavi came along the boys’ letters were combined into one and their consistency dwindled because…SPOILER ALERT: small children take up all your free time.
