High five to Just KayBee’s year of {Rookie Moms} challenges

The newish mama known as KayBee decided to tackle our rookie moms challenges with her second baby, Peanut, and we’re super excited to share her stories with you. Anytime we see you guys toting your baby along somewhere you might not have gone, we are so happy.
