My goals for June are as follows:... Read more

Leo is 10 1/2 months old now.
And....Leo's reflux is doing better than ever! He sleeps flat all the time now - IN HIS OWN ROOM!!! He's eating one full meal of solids per day, plus some little bits of food here and there. We have begun tr... Read more
Since writing my last blog about my goals for 2013, here's what I've done:
I joined Stroller Strides. Now Leo and I go work out with them 3 mornings a week, and are about to up it to 4 times a week. I joined mainly for the socialization asp... Read more

Baby Shower - 35 weeks
