Definitely quiet around here! How did the conversation go? I imagine it's pretty hard to bring back up again, even if he knows it's coming.

Redrock-he's so cute! Teething is starting here, too--DS1 is a total drooler. DD never was, so it's weird to be thinking about bibs and where we can get more of them, since we really only have a...
