I have made it approximately 10,882 days on this earth without any restrictions to my diet. Man, that makes me sound really old, huh?

The First 6 Months

HOW is my baby 6 months old? It just seems…impossible. So much has happened in the past 6 months and as they say, I can’t recall life without Shea…life not as a mom. There are highs and lows, but so, so, so many more highs than lows. Looking back, the first few weeks were the…

I knew the Monday following vacation would be hectic. They always are, aren’t they?
