Diaper Changing Made Simpler Thanks to Snoofybee

Now that Franklin is getting a little older, things are getting easier. He is able to entertain himself by playing with toys, he enjoys being mobile and he is feeding himself as well.

Baby-proofing (or Pet-proofing!) With Style

I quickly covered the outlets, bought materials to baby-proof the fireplace and cabinets, […]
