I was invited to a baby shower last week, and I wasn’t sure until the last minute if I would even go. ‘Cuz you know, leaving the house and all. But both kids took good naps, and I found that I had time to make something for the new mom. You know, by ignoring other… Continue reading A second taggy toy
Today I would like to introduce to you the newest member of our family, Nora Juliene. (Yeah, rookie mistake. Always take pictures of a cute outfit immediately after putting it on.
