My New Favorite Laundry Trick, Ever’s Half Birthday, and Other Notes!

Today is Ever’s half birthday, which might seem trivial compared to holidays like Christmas or the 4th of July, but gosh it feels monumental.  I can’t believe my tiny summer baby who came bursting so enthusiastically into our family last August is six months old today!  She’s the sweetest roly poly.
