Bringing Home Baby, Some Advice from Non-Experts

Recently, Crystal and I were able to spend some time with our friends for a little girls weekend and baby shower for our dear friend.  As all new moms, she  is a little nervous for all the changes this little bundle of joy will bring. She is especially nervous for the first few weeks.   The time when she and her husband learn to adjust routines to accommodate a new human life.  She asked us what our best advice for bringing home baby.  We both agreed, when you bring home the baby, you have to put your family first.

A Little About Me
