Da Na Na Na na na Na Na … Batman!

Time keeps moving and we’re keeping up as best as we can. No, we cannot believe that our little baby boy just turned 4 years old on May 16th! Yes, that’s right, 4! Like the past three years, this age is more fun than we ever knew. His birthday fell on a Saturday this year and we have a house now with more than one bathroom, so naturally, we had a party! I think this party was so special for[Read more]

That meant that most of the nursery decorating decisions were removed from the equation.
