I’m not quite sure when this happened but there are no more babies in my house. It feels like overnight my sweet little baby girl has suddenly become a big kid who has opinions, favorite animals, and can operate an electronic device.

It’s been a while since we last talked, Internet friends. Life has a way of getting crazy in a hurry and when you have children that crazy level becomes exponentially higher.
