Baby Names, Boobs and Business Trips

By Alicia Courtney

I think baby Annalise like traveling too ;)

I was so excited to introduce baby Annalise Kathleen in the last post.  The process of naming your baby is such an important one and every couple does it differently.  When it came to the baby girl name we both loved “Anna”.  So we worked from there.  My grandma’s name is Annabelle, I was almost […]

The Gillespie's Take Over Oahu
