One. Two. Three Months Old Already!  

I cannot believe our sweet little lady is three months old today! I haven’t written about the first or second month experience (bad blogger moment) so this is my way of playing catch up!

Let’s talk about raising a family. 

For me, I’ve always wanted a family. When I pictured it as a small child I remember thinking a mom, a dad a few children and a happy home. From the very early years I felt like this image had been imprinted in my mind and heart. Personally, growing up my family life wasn’t so…
