My husband and I have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of our first child, a boy, after several years of infertility. Turns out our son had a surprise for us all when he made his entrance into the world five weeks early – on Mother’s Day, no less! Welcome to the world, baby Judah. This is his epic birth story.

A couple of weeks ago, I challenged you all to be on the look out for magical moments in the midst of the mundane moments of your day. I hosted a challenge on Instagram with the hash tag: #magicinthemundane and I had so much fun seeing what each of you captured. It was so hard to pick my favorites, because there were so many great moments to choose from (there were nearly 400 photos under the hash tag!). Here are 25 of my favorites, but I hope you’ll check out the others under the hash tag over on Instagram, because there really were so many great ones. Thanks to all of you who joined in and made this a fun challenge!

My husband and I had a terrible time coming up with names for our children. We didn’t want any family names, but needed names that worked well in both English and Spanish and were easy to pronounce for the non-Spanish speaking side of the family.
We wanted something fresh yet classic. Our son’s name, Matías was inspired by a German ski jumper when my husband was watching winter sports on ESPN. It worked in Spanish (that’s the version we use) and wasn’t too common. Our daughter’s name, Lucía (that’s Little L) was much more difficult to agree on, but I wanted a strong, traditional and not overly used Spanish name. I felt so much pressure to choose the right one, after all this is for life!
The point is that every parent draws inspiration from somewhere — a family name, a favorite sports star, a name they once read in a book or a favorite television show character. I always say, when you know you know. So if you are looking for some inspiration, here are 40 names that have made comebacks or gained in popularity thanks to recent television shows and characters.

When the newest member of your family arrives, it can be easy to get lost in all the minutiae of caring for your little one – but there are magical moments to be found in all the little details. Each month I feature one mom sharing her magical moment of motherhood. This month, meet Charlotte and her one-year old daughter Lilah as they celebrate a huge milestone they were able to catch on video: baby’s first steps!
