It’s Official!

At the beginning of the year, in my “What I hope for this year” post, I mentioned we were going to start trying for a baby this year. Well, I’m happy to report that it did not take long at all! As of the end of February, we are most definitely pregnant! We’re pretty shocked that it happened so fast, […]
