  1. See – looks like you’ve found a way to make sure you aren’t too focused on Nathan getting everything handed to him. Congrats on accomplishing so much! I’m impressed.

    It seems Dona Belle is dynamite! I bet she skips some feedings during the day.But what do you expect, her Mom never stops so she is trying to keep up with you. Just Kidding You!I would almost fall asleep walking, forgot my name etc. It’s amazing we can survive! Love Martha
