The space right under my breasts is getting so so sore from…

32 weeks with Brooks and Ellis… – Parenting Twins Article

So I skipped a week again 🙁 It seems life with three littles and two on the way requires more of a bi-weekly update 🙂I can’t believe I am at 32 weeks! Its starting to sound a little closer.
