Dress C/O Pink Blush

In many ways this pregnancy has been very similar to my previous ones, but in some ways I feel like I’m experiencing things for the first time. There’s always something new to learn, a better product or invention, and more knowledge to grow in.

Diaper Need and How You Can Make a Difference!

 

I can’t believe that I’ll be holding a baby in my arms in a matter of months. A baby!!!
