I Am Not A Good Baby Sharer

This isn’t going to come as a surprise to anyone who has been around me since Caloway was born. I am a really bad baby sharer. I want other people to hold him and love on him, but I can’t seem to offer him up. If anyone has ever asked I have handed him over, […]

6 Months Down, 3 To Go!

That is right. Today marks 6 months into pregnancy land. I am happy to report that I am feeling good and the baby kicks don’t even scare me (much) anymore! That is a big milestone. I have been feeling kicks since about 18 or 19 weeks and I would jump every time. I couldn’t help […]
