Long time no post...

So it's been a while since I have posted on here. Too long in fact and I need to change that. So I'm now 22 weeks pregnant with our second baby, and Summer is now 26 months old.

Here's why: I have read many things and heard from many OBGYN doctors including my OB that sugar in the mother's diet is a big factor when it comes to how big the baby will be at birth. I know there are just some things out of our control, such as genetics, but why take tha…
