So many lovely humans came over to celebrate out baby warming & house shower today. The weather was filthy this morning but turned sunnny. Here's a cherry picked shot of our lounge packed with scuttlers

There were a bunch of other gorgeous people there too, like Scrap on the couch with her fucking amazing tattoos and cryptozoological d&d mind.

We had a bowl people could suggest names into. Scrap suggested about 30 (Tuba, Jackula, Gums, Jupiter). @dominic was it you who suggested Kumara (the nz sweet potato) ?

Here are some other excellent humans - they organised this (and large parts of our wedding) out of generosity and love. My mum Barbara, Silvia Zuur, and Gina Rembe (with her 6 week old Lotte),

My dad (@bob) drove 1.5 hours down from Masterton to join us, which was super sweet.

I was super humbled by the gifts people brought. I was surprised in particular to be moved to tears opening gifts from my dad for my child to be. I think it was a constellation of things I hadn't yet imagined. It felt a lot like care, love, family, and I dunno, imagining my dad hanging out with this new person and how great he his with kids - kind, patient, curious, encouraging. phew
