Baby Names Inspired by Disney Siblings

If you’ve always dreamed of having a big family, then chances are you’ve given thought to several baby names as opposed to just one. It isn’t uncommon for siblings to have names with the same first initial, ones that rhyme, or even names that fall into the same category, such as virtue baby names.

To help with that, there are quite a few Disney movies and television shows where siblings make an appearance, offering even more name inspiration. As a tribute to the brothers and sisters of Disney, here are some baby names inspired by Disney siblings.

Mirror, Mirror: How Children Reflect Our True Selves

The memory is a vivid one: my toddler yelling, “No Stella. Go home Stella,” as the dog circles her high chair.

“Stella just wanted to say hello to you,” I tell her.

“Okay,” she replied.

In that moment, I saw myself. How I’ve often been annoyed with our furry baby in the past. Telling her to “go home” to her area each time she placed her head in my lap or leaned on my legs underneath the table.

That moment forced me to look at my own self in a way that I hadn’t. It wasn’t until I saw an undesirable behavior of mine manifested in my little one that I realized I needed to make some changes.

My Favorite Instagrams from Lola's 21st Month

Last week my littlest turned 22-months-old just as I was coming to terms with the fact that she was already 21-months-old. These last few months of what are considered the baby years are flying by even faster than I imagined they would. Each day Lola’s becoming more independent and expressive of her wants and needs. Each day I find myself breathing a sigh of relief during the moments when she wants to cuddle or lay in my arms. I feel like I’ve been given one more chance to bathe in babyhood and all its magic and I don’t want to miss a moment. At the same time I want to cheer her on as she takes her toddler sized steps inching her way toward “kid” status. While month 22 is now underway I wanted to share a few photos from month 21 because turning 21 is a big deal for little ones too. Take a look:

Summer's Must Have Item: Disney Baby Wet Bags from Bumkins

What I’ve found with regards to summer adventures is that they tend to be the messiest (and perhaps most memorable) of all seasons. So far our days have been filled with splash pads, sandy toes, frozen yogurt and watermelon. And, we’re just getting started!

When it comes to having fun on the go I’ve learned that there are certain items that make navigating our time away from home a lot easier. As we make our way through our summer wish list I’m learning that perhaps it is time to add a few more items to that list of essentials. One item I’m currently considering is a wet bag. It’s a nice and eco friendly alternative to plastic bags and is the perfect place to put wet clothes or shoes while keeping the rest of your diaper bag or purse clean. The best part is that they are washable which means they can be used again and again. Here are a few from the collection from Bumkins:
