I often wonder about the next milestones in store for my son. When he was a baby, the milestones were frequent and momentous: First rollover, first crawl, first words, first steps. As he has gotten older, the firsts in his life are further apart and sometimes harder to notice.…Continue

Newborn milestones are exciting! Seeing the new baby grow, learn new things, and experience the world. However, for this mama, they are also sad. Sienna is our 3rd baby. She will also be our last. So with every new milestone, I am reminded that it is also the last.
