The last three months have been a whirlwind to say the least. With the birth of our second son – Boy Part Deux (BPD), it resulted in many welcomed visitors from out of town. From July to just short of two weeks ago, our house was a hub of activity. These past two weeks was … Continue reading Happy parents = happy kids
