I’m in awe of the change that can happen in just 365 days. My baby is turning ONE this week—a whole trip around the sun.  It’s been such a quick year, a whirlwind…and yet it’s hard to remember life before...
Ok. This may not be very 2019 of me, but here goes: I Love Baby Books. For those of you non-Luddites out there, a baby book (also known as a record book or memory book) is a sort-of store-bought...
