Treasure Your Child’s name forever with Namestories

“Your name, even when shared by scores of others, is your own private one-word poem. It contains multitudes, and it cannot be defined by its meaning alone, but by the spirit it gains through its historic evolution.” -Namestories

When I first learned I was pregnant I immediately started to wonder about what I would name my baby boy or girl. I even had a long discussion with my husband about what should baby’s name mean or symbolize. For example in his family he and his brother carry their fathers name as their middle name. So a name can extend a legacy of another family member. We also wanted their first name to have good strong meaning.

“When I first learned I was pregnant I immediately started to wonder about what I would name my baby boy or girl.”

I mean your child’s name is a forever thing. It was something we loved to see and hear. To have a piece of beautiful artwork customized with your baby’s name is so sentimental. They come in two different sizes, a complete rainbow of colors and you can customize some of the text at the top, we chose birthdates for our sons. These are very special to give to grandparents as gifts and to new parents. And if you can’t find your child’s name on the website you can just send them a message and they will make sure you can get your child’s name on a poster.

A little bit about the company, it’s a small business. When you go to their website not only can you read the story of how their business came to be but they have a nice section that explains the history of naming. It’s interesting and informative. So if you are looking for a birthday gift or welcome gift to new parents I will go ahead and link their website below so you can click and shop 😉

I hope everyone is doing well!! Please check out Namestories they have a really unique product for parents I know you’ll love it!! Also subscribe with your email!! And follow along!! xo


Nanobebe Duet Diaper Bag

“As a mom, one of my favorite necessary accessories is my diaper bag.”

As a mom, one of my favorite necessary accessories is my diaper bag. For this stage in my life it goes with me everywhere so I want something stylish, and I need something that can handle holding all of the things my kids may need outside of the house, and sometimes inside the house!(I’m sure we’ve all ran out of diapers at some point and went straight for the diaper bag until we can make it to the store)
**The nanobebe duet diaper bag is designed to provide storage in duel level compartments. The top compartment is full of dividers and pockets to store different things you may need for baby. There’s a secure almost hidden pocket on the outside to put your phone, money, important cards and keys.

There is plenty of open space for clothing and any extras you may need to carry. It comes with a nice changing pad that has hidden pockets to hold wipes and diapers.(It’s washable!!) On the bottom there is an insulated space for any other items you might carry and a removable divider. So you could take out the divider and pack your breast pump to carry or you could put bottles, extra wipes, etc. I use it with the divider. It comes with a bottle cooler bag which I keep in the bottom and I use it to pack my snacks for outings! It has different options for carrying, it comes with handles, detachable shoulder strap, and stroller straps so it can attach to your stroller handle. I’m going to leave a link so you can check it out for yourself. (I’ll upload a video soon so you can see all the storage space in the duet diaper bag.) **Everything discussed is my honest opinion.

When to Get Back Into the Swing of Things…?

When to get back into the swing of things..?

This is something I’m sure every new mom wonders through the sleepless nights, or when you spend most of the day soothing your fussy baby, or you want to get some one on one time back with your hubby, or you other children, or yourself. Yes mamas, me time counts too!! But how do you know when? I mean do you just decide to go all in one day and give it a shot or do you slowly gather your routine back. This has been on my mind so much lately. I really miss the things I loved to do before my new baby. I love him but I want to be my own person again and soon. I think we all need to be separate from our daily job as mom, or wife because we are more than that and I believe that gives our life a healthy balance. Maybe there isn’t a magic number of days or weeks…I’ve just struggled with this more this time around than with my firstborn. I feel like the first time I bounced right back in about a month. This time has been so much slower and I’m having a hard time remembering all we’ve been through and I should give myself grace and stop trying to force things to happen so quickly. But I’ve been going stir crazy I guess not having a single spare moment to myself. Any other moms do you feel me or agree on this? How did you get back to your normal schedule after baby? Drop a comment below and let me know what you did or didn’t do!!

Also thank you for reading and please give this post a thumbs up and subscribe. This helps me to reach and connect with more people and other mamas out there as I’m trying to grow my blog and continue doing what I love.
