Congratulations to New Expectants, New Moms, and Other New Listings

Wheeeeee! I’m not sure which is more exciting — “I’m pregnant” or “The baby is finally here.” Both are wonderful. I think I’m especially giddy on the subject since two non-blogging real-life friends announced that they were pregnant today, and they’re due within days of one another. One couple is […]
