The Things I Loved This Week

At long last it’s finally really feeling like the start to summer here this week and I have been loving the sunshine the last few days.

10 DIY Cardboard Toys to Inspire Playtime

Baby E is three months old today, which honestly hardly seems possible. She’s hitting such a fun stage right now, learning to play and growing increasingly verbal.
