three months postpartum

I think I’ll always say this but TIME FLYS.  It scares me when I look at my children and see that they’re outgrowing their clothes or when the toys that they once thought were “the coolest” are now being passed to down to Porter (but I appreciate the sharing).  Henry is now old enough to …

on getting beach body ready
