Last week, after Falsettos closed, Orrin and I hopped in the car with the babies for a leisurely 10 hour drive to New York. As you can imagine, New York City holds a special place in my heart, and so it was with great anticipation that we departed for our babies’ first visit. More

To crawl or not to crawl, that is the question?
This week our kids turned 11 months old. I cannot believe it. Only one more month until a full year has passed since our lives changed forever.
