      Keep Baby Warm with 7 AM Enfant

        When we found out we were having a winter baby, I realized that I needed to look into some gear to keep her warm.  Our boys were born in the spring/early summer so we didn’t deal with many cold temperatures when they were really young.  I knew that getting outside from the very beginning with […]

                Mama, Keep those Wheels Rolling!

                  At 25 weeks pregnant, I am totally clear of the half way point, obviously pregnant to strangers, feeling good….and only 5 weeks away from when I went on bed rest with P. YIKES! Believe me, the thought of doing that again scares me to death.  I do not sit still well.  At all.  However, I […]

                  Expanding the Mountain Family….

                    It’s official.  We made it through (barely) the first trimester, the ultrasounds look good and we are all set to welcome a new member of the family this winter!
