Gearing Up for Baby No. 2

After reading Mrs. Jump Rope’s post on gear items for Baby 2, it made me think and question if I have everything we need for our little guy! I am pretty close to the finish line and expect to deliver in the next couple of weeks! Fortunately, before we had Toddler Checkers, I made sure [...]

Mrs. Rabbit’s Top 10 Newborn Must-Haves
