Baby Sleep_Story time

I don’t want to sleep like a baby, I just want to sleep like my husband.

Babies Don’t Keep: Keepsakes with Smallprint

Smallprint Fingerprint necklace

What they say is true … babies don’t keep. 

You’ll hear it often … “time goes by so fast when raising kids”. “Blink and they will be teenagers.” It’s not something you can fully appreciate, until you’re in it.
