The End of a Great Year

January marks the end of two eras--2016, and the end of Bauer being a baby. Of course, this means he won't be a baby to the rest of the world, because he will always be my baby (cue Mariah Carey music). Even though he will likely be taller than both Matt and me--at the age of six. Kidding.

Jennifer, may you and your family have the very best of holidays this year!

A Gift Between the Holidays

As a mom of one tiny human, I know how crazy my calendar can fill up, and getting everything organized for the holidays is like trying to solve a rubix cube without cheating and peeling all of the stickers off. I'm sure my holiday craziness isn't nearly what this precious baby's mom, Julie, was feeling because she has not one, but TWO, tiny humans to herd and just gave birth to her third son, Owen. She actually contacted me from the hospital where she casually quipped, "We are having our third son today, and need some photos for the holidays." Woman after my own heart. Meet Owen.
