IMG_0437_2

Liam is 8 months today and boy are things starting to get hard again.

Even though a lot of things are easier now like feedings, baths, and sleeping one thing that’s changed is how Liam reacts when he see’s me or when I leave  a room. I know all babies go through this I even went through it with Alex, but that didn’t make me anymore prepared for it. Continue reading

Cars, cars, cars. It’s all about the cars these days. Drifting, shifting, crashing, skidding, jumping and…rallying. My son is 8 yrs old and fascinated by the world of rally cars. Ken Block is his favourite professional rally car driver and racing his little Hot Wheels is his favourite pastime.
