Our handsome babe is somehow already 6 weeks old! It definitely feels like an accomplishment to have made it this far with no major disasters (a few pee incidents, a couple sad accidents with that liquid gold breast milk and a failed first night out WITH baby) and a big wins like him sleeping 5.5… Continue reading 6 weeks!
On Friday, we attempted (and failed at) our first night out with Liam in tow.
