We don't have nearly as many guests stopping by the house to see baby Colton. While I love when people come visit & I appreciate how excited everyone is to meet my son, it's nice to get into a routine with my nearly 3 week old little boy. We're figuring each other out, learning each … Continue reading Settling In… My Maternity Leave Thus Far
