So I’ve sat in front of the computer too many times wanting to publish Maximiliano’s birth story but it hurts me so bad that his birth didn’t go as planned. With Eli, I never had a birth plan. All I wanted to do when he was born, do skin to skin, and soak up every […]

32 weeks pregnant and planning a birthday party is NO FUN. This is why I chose Peter Piper Pizza. I didn’t have to worry about making food. I didn’t have to worry about entertaining the children. I didn’t have to worry about the clean up. Eliseo is OBSESSED with Pixar Car’s. He loves Lightning McQueen, […]
