In the third trimester we puzzle over baby stuff, fend off invasive strangers, get blown away by friends, suffer through contractions, and meet our baby!

The Second Trimester

In the second trimester we lounge on Maui, battle heat, grapple with body image, subvert gender norms, pick an unusual nickname, and hold a very cute baby.

On Jetsetting

In two days I will be leaving for Hong Kong. I will be there for a 4-month exchange term with Hong Kong University. I will be travelling and living with my Amelia, my wife, and Katharina Spötzl, a friend from law school who will also be on exchange.
