Arachnophobia

Leta has recently entered another phase of Let’s Kill Mom and Dad Through Sleep Deprivation, a behavior she perfected in the first six months of her life.

Plush Baby Blanket

My friend Faeth had a baby boy earlier this month, so I went on Etsy to see if I could find a cute baby blanket. I remember in those early months with Leta how we’d go through several blankets during the day because she’d either spit up or poop on one within ten minutes of [...]
