Week 1

This is little J's first full week at home. It's a magical time for us. We are so grateful to be spending Christmas getting to know our new love.

I'm such a big girl.

Life is good when you’re fed, clean, and loved.

I’m such a big girl now. My cheeks are a little bigger and I’m VERY good at tummy time. That said, I’m not a huge fan of diaper changes...
