What About Your Mental Checklist?
As you get excited about this next life adventure, don’t forget to slow down and appreciate this twilight season of life with your spouse. The life-of-two is going to bloom into something greater, but it is going to be different.

Now is a good time to make sure you’re on the same page. Remember, you are both going to love this baby and even though your methods may be a bit different, you both want to do what’s best for your child. Let that be the bridge that connects you moving forward!
