IT’S A GIRL! I have been quite quiet the past few months – we’ve had a lot going on! You may recall that I was baking a little Bun-in-the-Oven. Well, our little bun is fully baked and entered our family at the end of April.

(ok – they may be a totally horrible comparison in all honesty – but it popped into my head and I just kinda went with it… its my blog – I can make the horrible corny comparisons if I want to, right!?)
