My name is Jessi and I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Ava Rei, on 3/13/13. Her name and birth date are both palindromes, not even on purpose :) I love being a mommy and finding all the most natural ways possible to live and raise my baby. I am always researching everything to do with babies, from vaccines to car seat safety. I am always willing to learn new things and to help others learn new things! I'm glad to be part of this mothering community, as I feel it is the best one out there.
