Postpartum what?!

Postpartum what?!

Blurry pictures, no makeup, glasses, watching cartoons, sweats and a t-shirt – yep, all signs of just having a baby.  I have to admit, I had no idea what to expect after delivering my first child.  Physically and emotionally, my body is forever different.  It didn’t get easier with numbers 2 and 3 either. If […]
