But my favorite mothering duty is welcoming Ezra to the world! Which is a huge ongoing and around-the-clock job!
Ezra is surrounded by welcoming folk!
His first mother who ADORES him.
His Nina who is his confidant and trusted head of the welcoming committee (there's not a formal committee- haha. just saying Nina is a safe harbor of warmth and blessings.)
Susan, the great baby consoler and general merrymaker.
