I have a hard time looking at baby pictures sometimes.  Pictures of sleeping (live) newborns just bother me.  I couldn’t put my finger on it for a while, but after hearing someone tell me that Cora “just looks like she’s sleeping” it hit me: I hate pictures where, to me, the babies look dead.  So…

Hello Foot, Meet Mouth

Yea, I really helped myself with my last blog post. *insert eye roll* I was bragging about how wonderful everything was going with this pregnancy, and low and behold. BAM!!
