  5. I am so sorry for your loss, KariBeth. I went through that before Liam, and it is the worst. I hope the awesome parts of 2012 carry over to 2013 for y'all:)

  6. Oh girl :( I am so sorry. Hoping my FB comment today didn't sting. I had no idea and I hope you weren't hurt by it. If you ever need to talk just know that I am here for you xoxo

    1. No worries! It was such a surprise pregnancy that I hadn't even gotten used to the idea before it happened. It was quick and painless and came right before Holiday ball, so it was good timing if it was going to happen!
