San Diego

Ok, so you have probably seen the video by now of Caloway’s beach adventure. If you haven’t, you should. It is hilarious and a memory I won’t soon forget. But what we haven’t done is effectively told the story of our fantastic time in San Diego. We were there to see doctors for Caloway, but […]

Recently I had the opportunity to watch my good friends son, Truitt for about an hour. This means I had Caloway and Truitt (he was 8 months old) at the same time. I am sure all you baby experts out there do not think this is a big deal, but for me it was huge. Jill […]

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, […]

My Baby Toolbox

There are a lot of things you learn as a new mom. For me, I had to learn it all. Playing with dolls and occasionally my niece– hardly ever unsupervised –was my experience.
