Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog. And congrats on your beautiful new son. Oh, in a perfect world I would love to have two girls and then a boy too. Unfortunately, I don't get to decide that :)

My mother can relate as daddy was gone all the time when we were young. There were also three of us under the age of 5. Hang in there. It'll get better.
