Book Review: Rocking and Reading with Jungle Jam

Like most children, my girls love listening to stories and always run to the bookshelf to pick out a book for bedtime. So when we were asked to review a new children’s book, I couldn’t say no.

16 months update

Clara is almost 16 months old, and her little, or should that be big, personality is really starting to shine through.

Easter parade
