The Last First Birthday

Posted by savannahkase on May 2, 2018 in Parenting, Personal, Second Child |

There is nothing like watching a baby transform from a wrinkled, helpless bundle into a walking, babbling, little human with his own ideas (“What happens if I scoop all the cat’s dry food into her water dish?”), opinions (books on floor > books on shelves), sense of humor (blowing raspberries on Mommy and Daddy is […]

I vividly remember the moment it hit me that I was about to become a parent. We had received our carefully-selected co-sleeper as a gift back in October, but – as a matter of superstition and practicality – I had forbidden my husband to set it up before I was 38 weeks pregnant. When that […]
