Pregnant with Baby #3, my husband and I rarely get alone time. Last weekend, we had the glorious opportunity to spend 24+ hours sans children!

From my experience though, rainy weather is way better on little ones than snow. We can still get outside to splash in the puddles (as long as there isn’t lightning) and it makes for a cozy, creative day indoors. As a stay-at-home mom, rain sort of forces me to get creative. It makes me come up with fun (and sometimes messy) ways to have fun with my little ones. Here are a few rainy day ideas for little ones under 2…

My 20-Week Ultrasound

You’d think that being pregnant for the third time, I’d be more relaxed. You’d think I’d be an expert on all things pregnancy and childbirth and that I wouldn’t have a single worry. But the truth is, this third time has been the most nerve-wrecking pregnancy of them all…
