Since that time many people have asked me what can they do to help other parents who have a baby in the hospital. Recently I got to put my advice back into
The weather this past weekend was AMAZING. Winter didn't want to go quietly this year and we have been hit with a couple of Spring snow falls. But weekends like this past one make you forget about all of that while you ditch your coat and enjoy being outside in the sun.

The thought of the first dental visit is daunting, but they say an infant should

I recently we went on a business trip to Halifax. I always love visiting Halifax as I spent a number of vacations there as a teen visiting my Aunt and Uncle who live in Nova Scotia.

"Mommy my hands hurt." A simple statement from my son mid-winter. However when I looked at his hands to investigate it didn't look very simple at all.

Having never really shown to have sensitive skin before this year, his hands have shown their true colors.
