Happy Belated New Year

Okay, so I've left you all hanging for the last month, and I have to apologize. I do, however, have an excellent reason for doing so, which is that on December 9, I gave birth to my first baby, a girl, Hana MacKay Lockwood, who weighed in at a hefty fighting weight of 8 lbs and 14 ounces.

Since then, as any of you moms know, it's been a blur of no sleep and scrambling to find that five minutes a day to brush my teeth. In fact, I'm sacrificing dental health at this moment to write this blog, because I have priorities, dammit!

I have no complaints, however, since I've been blessed with the Most Beautiful Baby In The World. Honestly, I feel sorry for the other babies out there. It's just no contest. Makes me think there should be a Baby Universe pageant, but only if Donald Trump didn't own it.

Speaking of, am I the only one out there who really doesn't care what he and Rosie O'Donnell say about each other? Honestly. It's like the blind fighting the blind. Or should I say the bad hair fighting the worse hair?

Anyway, on to more pressing news, which is the birth of my other child, the second book in the Bard Academy series, The Scarlet Letterman, which is now in stores. It's already getting rave reviews (of course, what would you expect from the mother of the Smartest Baby in the World?):

How strange...I was just looking at my Bloglines feeds and thinking, "Hmm, Cara hasn't updated. I wonder if she's had a baby." That's my natural instinct, anyway. For all I knew you could have been dabbling in long-haul trucking.

Congratulations! I had my first in November. The sleep thing will gradually get better. I won't say "sleep when the baby sleeps" like everyone else, because that's bullhonkery.

Some of the comments on here are frightening! Anyway, congratulations on the birth of Hana. Is she named for the Hana in the Bard Academy series, or was that a name you were saving for your daughter all along? I don't expect you to answer, of course, but I am curious. By the way, I love the first two Bard novels and can't wait to read more... Probably because I'm mildly obsessed with Heathcliff, and have been since childhood. It's sad, really; but thank you so much for bringing him back to life in your novels. I think you're fabulous. :)

Omg, I didn't even know you were pregnant! It must have been subtly added in your posts.. Congratulations! A baby girl, how sweet. Hopefully you can settle into a good routine soon!
