Life as Me, Again


Here’s the scoop on my life this week: FishBaby – It’s amazing that our girl is already two weeks old today. The days have just flown by. I am pleased to report that she nurses well, and her eye appears to be completely healed. We’ll know later in the week, once we’re off eye drops; […]

Life as Me


Things I am doing or thinking this week: – Full day school can wait another week while I enjoy my official 2 weeks in my pj’s. I SO much love the newborn stage, just cuddling and nursing! I have amnesia already and am wanting to have another baby. How crazy is that?! But, to me […]
