Spring Break and Baby Announcement!

Any links to Amazon are affiliate links.

This week, I will be enjoying Spring Break with my family, so I will be taking the week off from blogging. There will be a giveaway posted Saturday. Until then, go enjoy your own spring! Or there are always hundreds of posts you can read here 🙂


We have found out the gender of our baby! We are having a girl! The girls are thrilled. Brayden was hoping for a brother, but has accepted his role as protector of three younger sisters 🙂 She is completely healthy and everything looks good at this point!


Valerie, also known as The Babywise Mom, is the mother to four children. She has been blogging on Babywise and general parenting since 2007. She has a degree in technical writing and loves using those skills to help parents be the best parents they can be! Read her book, The Babywise Mom Nap Guide, to get help on sleep from birth through the preschool years. You can also find her writing at Babywise.life, Today Parenting, and Her View From Home. Read more about Valerie and her family on the About page. Follow her on FacebookPinterest, and Instagram for more tips and helps.

    Thank you everyone!Caroline, I don't think you want the water unless you want twins. There is an extremely high incidence of twins in my neighborhood. I think the water helped me get preggo with my PCOS. I have a neighbor with PCOS who is preggo a couple of weeks after me. The water is a fertility drug 🙂
