Anna James is here! There are so many things to say about her birth, her sweet little self, and the adjustment of having a third baby... I could probably write ten blog posts on just those things.

H-E-L-L-O, Friends! Happy 2019! It has been quite a minute... but I'm back and want to share what we've been up to!
