Six Months Old!

Last week, my baby girl turned six months old! That’s a half a year, people. Whoa.

Soon she'll outgrow the chair. She already dwarfs the puppy.

She went to her new doctor for her six month appointment:

It was the best thing we’ve ever done. (Well, you know, besides make a baby. And get married. Ok, it’s in the top 3.)

Breastfeeding Pros & Cons

Breastfeeding has been one of the most challenging and rewarding parts of motherhood. It hasn’t always been easy, but there is a bright side to every negative, and I’m not talking about the whole breast is best part.
