We’re a reading household. As a long-time writer and literature major, most of my life revolves around the written word. My husband burns through library cards like crazy, and we’re happy to report that the kids seem to be picking up our love of books! My son is even starting to read and he’s picking it up quickly. Watching him read some of the classics I read as a child just makes my bookwormy heart flutter, and one of our favorites is The Very Hungry Caterpillar – a book that just happens to be celebrating its 45th anniversary!

Wait, what? Plastic cups? Yeah, I know. I don’t do much plastic. I was hesitant to try Tervis tumblers, but when it comes to water, I like a clear cup. My stainless steel bottles always leave me guessing about how clean they really are inside, plus Tervis makes a great looking cup that’s fun to carry (and I need all the help I can get staying hydrated.)

Being pregnant is a wonderful thing, but there’s no question that those months can be very uncomfortable. Personally, I found sleeping very difficult because I am a tummy sleeper and that’s a no-go in the later months.
