I was starting to panic about going to back to work (which happens this Monday, SOB). As if I hadn’t taken advantage of all this time off to do anything fun (which is not the case, but you know how stir-crazy you can get spending all day–and night–with an infant). So at the last minute, […]

Winter kind of flew by, in that, we didn’t really have one. We’ve had record-breaking sun, warmth, and dryness. I know I shouldn’t be jealous of all the snow on the east coast, but I am a little! Milo asked endlessly to go to Mountain Hood (as he calls it) and play in the snow. […]

But aside from a few more routine follow-ups, Emmett no longer has any special preemie care and he’s doing very well. […]
