Stacie Lewis’ experience raising hell…
... erm, raising a little girl with severe brain damage. The blog began in 2009 when May was 4 1/2 months old.
Currently, May enjoys bouncing and the dulcet tones of dub step.

Baby Jet Lag. Not fun. It’s a funny thing, see – babies don’t understand time zones. They just don’t get it. And, May has one super power above all others.
