    By on January 1, 2016

    Happy New Year’s Eve, friends! I’m sitting on my bed-with a sweet 2 month old asleep next me. I just gave him a bath so he’s smelling fresh and looking extra cuddly. I will refrain from squeezing him. Instead, I will take advantage of this moment of other…

  • Change again

    By on August 10, 2015
