We’re crazy obsessed over here. It’s been two and a half years since we last had a newborn in the house. Since then, our fascination with newborns seems to have increased tenfold. With Amani’s arrival, we are besides ourselves with sheer joy.We just can’t get enough of her.
Choosing a baby name is such a big decision. Some couples are able to select one with ease, while others are unable to agree until after the baby is born. A name can be passed down from previous generations or it can be a modern variation or hybrid of classic names. As for my newest daughter, I wanted a name for her that would be meaningful and special, yet also pay homage to a dear and beloved person in my life. For those reasons, I chose the name Amani, after my favorite cousin, meaning “wishes, aspirations.”
Every year during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, Muslims all over the world fast from dawn until dusk as an act of worship. Children, elderly, and nursing or pregnant mothers are exempt. With Amani just barely two months at the start of this Ramadan, I knew I wouldn’t be fasting along with my family and friends. To say I felt left out is an understatement. It didn’t feel like Ramadan to me, but I had a very good excuse for not fully participating.
Bathtime is one of my favorite times. What’s not to love about splashing in the water, bubble baths, and fresh, clean kiddos at the end of it all? As a mama to four, most of the time I have to bathe them each quickly in order to get through them all in a reasonable amount of time. That may mean less fun for the sake of efficiency. But with the adorable bathtime products from Kohl’s, we can now infuse some fun into their baths. Washcloth sets, robes, and hooded towels featuring their favorite Disney characters including, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and Finding Nemo, are all available. Check out these great goodies that make bathtime fun and efficient.
