Happy New Year from a bad blogger

How is it already a week into 2012?  Like many of you, the chaos of the holidays is finally subsiding and I’m hoping that we can get back into our regular routine this week, and that includes more blogging by yours truly!  The girls are keeping me on my toes – Rowan learned how to pull up to a stand on New Year’s Day and she’s trying her hardest to walk but lacks the balance to do it, so there are lots of bumps and near-misses around here.  She’s almost 10 months old and I’m starting to think Read more […]

The Soft Peek-A-Boo Blocks are clearly going to be one of Rowan’s Read more […]
