The creators of this blog, Kimberly and Signa, raised our children in the same community. We each have a son and daughter ages 3 years apart. As a result, our paths would often cross while dropping off the kids at school, volunteering, or at practices. As hard as it is to believe our youngest children are graduating from college this year. It’s been a wonderful lasting friendship and business partnership over the years. Because of our experience, we enjoy meeting young families knowing the journey that lies ahead and the memories they will create. Adding a baby to the family is a transformative moment in life. We created this set of cookies to welcome the second baby to a special growing family.
