My New Year’s Baby

Oh my, where to begin… I didn’t blog my pregnancy with Lil’ Tea Cup. I am not sure why exactly, but when I found out I was pregnant with Lil’ Tea Pot, I suddenly had nothing to say all over again. Something about pregnancy seems to bring out my intensely private side – which frankly […]
