I don’t know what it is with me lately, but I have an overwhelming sweet tooth. Like an addict I have to sit on my hands not to reach into the clear, finger-print smudged cake dome that houses my son’s occasional treats like his chocolate, butter cream frosted birthday cupcakes or banana bread that I made so the sad, browning bananas wouldn’t go to waste.

10 Helpful & Healthy Tips for Traveling Pregnant

Today I’m 22 weeks pregnant and just landed in Baltimore–my 3 year old toddler, Camden, in tow.
