I Had a Baby!

And this is why I went from posts on how terrible maternity clothes are to a gap with no posts. Our little Kickies was born on October 2nd, emerging via c-section while Jack White’s Lazaretto played – but by the time she was nestled on my chest, it was Falling Down by The Deadlights –…
