I haven't checked bak in a while, but how is everyone doing? I imagine most of us have already had our little ones and I hope we're all settling in. Our guy is over a month old now and has his fussy moments (he has a schedule. Right now, it means our dinner time. Yeah. Just as DH and I are sitting down. SO. NOT. FUNNY. I guess that's why the microwave was invented.
