Max and Lily
Max and Lily are best friends, and have been from the moment she got home. He is always by her, runs into her room when she starts crying and has to be right next to whoever holds her (unless it's me or Terence). He loves to be around her, and I am so exci...

Relationships When You Have A Baby
Maintaining your relationship with your significant other when you become a new parent is really hard, nothing has ever taken more of a poll on my relationship than the birth of my daughter. I wouldn't trade her for anything in the world, but I will say tha...

What Lily Loves
Children can be so difficult, and all you want to do is comfort them. I find it so amazing that you learn so much about your child in such a short amount of time. By the time we left the hospital, 48 hours after her birth it was like I had known her for for...
