The Halfway Mark

Today marks twenty weeks into my pregnancy. I can’t believe I’m at this point already and we go in for our ultrasound today to check on baby’s growth, development and find out the gender! I don’t know how, but we were really patient with our first and didn’t find out until Peyton was born. We […]

Our Family Dynamic

It’s normally in the morning, or late afternoon when I witness it most.
