Becca's life

in way too much detail

I grew up on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, the oldest of 3 kids. I recently earned my PhD in microbiology from UC Berkeley. I live with my husband, bsittler, our daughter, Iris, two cats, and an aquarium full of fish. I've written about Iris's birth, and posted pictures of the birth, and pictures of us at home afterwards. The birth story of our twins, Zinnia and Neil, is here, and there are a few pictures here.

I'm very interested in sustainable living. I'm vegetarian. I recycle. I breastfeed and cloth diaper my babies. I vote. I try to find re-usable alternatives for disposable products. I like cooking, juggling, and playing board games.
