We are due with baby Rentfro #2 in January 2021 and we could not be more thrilled! However, I am a plus size mom to be and that comes with a certain set of high risks when pregnant.

As she gets older, we’ll add to these activities with more age-appropriate things to do! (Busy bags…we’re coming for you!)Continue reading “The Best Amazon Products for Toddler Travel”
