When I found out we were expecting our second child, I was excited and a bit nervous. For years our daughter had been the only child and I worried about her adjusting to a new sibling and also how it would be for Cruz, my husband, and I to split our time between two children. … Continue reading Big Sister Bag

"he had already learned his lesson by painful experience" synonyms: involvement in, participation … Continue reading Word of the Month
Our son was born December 27th. His due date was January 9th, but he just couldn't wait for 2018. It's been an adjustment being a mom to two children, more so for sleep purposes, but our daughter loves her brother and is such a great helper (she helps with feeding and burping him and she … Continue reading He’s Here!
