Our Favorite Newborn Items

We got a lot of great gifts & made some really good purchases before Avonlea was born.  Some that I know we will love that we haven’t even used yet since they’ll be for when she’s a little older…but I wanted to share what our favorites are for this stage.  I’ve been keeping a running list […]

Avonlea | One Month

Time is flying.  I know this is what everyone says, but I really just can’t believe Avonlea has already been with us for a whole month.  It feels like she’s been in our lives forever, & just a day, all at the same time. Firsts: First hike (more on that here)! First time meeting Grandbuddy! […]
