Colic – the good, the bad, and the ugly truth

What do you mean my son has colic? Not something a first time mom wants to hear, let’s be honest! When Malakai was born, we did not experience the whole “newborn babies sleep so peacefully for the first two weeks”, thing that we were told about.

Today is the day, a very good day, a very special day ,the first official day in which Leather Jacket Foxes becomes a live running site on the inter webs! I am beyond excited, and a little bit nervous! I think that’s because for the last few months I have been plotting, dreaming, rethinking, reimagining, designing, and conceptualizing all that Leather Jacket Foxes could be!
