Everything You Need for a DIY Baby Shower

Last week, I woke up to the most wonderful surprise. A group of friends (all friends online, none have I met in real life!!) surprised my friend Carla and I with a virtual baby shower. We woke up to find 14 different blog posts, all featuring amazing handmade items for baby – including baby shower invitations and refreshments! Not only did they surprise us online, but they ended up sending each of us all of their handmade goodies in the mail. From cute little burp cloths and baby shoes to nursery art and confetti balloons, they covered everything you’d need for a DIY baby shower! Take a look…

6 Spectacular Push Presents for the Disney Loving Mom

After getting through 9 months of pregnancy and labor and delivery, I’m all for Moms receiving a gift.  Sure, the baby is the best gift of all, but I feel like Mom deserves a little something for herself to say “You did it and you’re awesome!”

Don’t worry Dad, I pulled together some great Disney push presents that will be just right for your Disney loving wife. Once she gets her hands on any of these, it’ll be happily ever after.

DIY Valentine's Day Handprint Canvas

Last week, Grayson, the girls, and I whipped up a fun little Valentine’s Day craft for all of our loved ones. But, I have to say — it’s just perfect for a baby to help make. Whether it’s for grandparents, godparents, or just Mom or Dad — it’s super-easy and so much fun. Grayson giggled the entire time, and we loved getting crafty while creating this handmade gift! While it might not be perfect, it’s the imperfections that make it “perfect,” and any loved one would be glad to receive it on the special holiday! In just a few simple steps with minimal craft supplies, you’ll have a masterpiece on your hands. Take a look!

Two New Diaper Bags You'll Fall in Love With

Each and every time a new diaper bag design comes out, I get a little excited. Handbags have a way of dressing up an outfit, and luckily you can use diaper bags for the same purpose. Gone are the days when frumpy diaper bags were the “norm.”

Storksak and Babymel are two of my favourite diaper bag companies, and I’ve sported both with all three of my children. Leather, canvas, nylon — I’ve tried them all. These bags are a little on the pricey side, but when you take the quality and style into consideration — they are worth every penny. In fact, I’m still using a Storksak bag from six years ago!

Both Babymel and Storksak have partnered with Disney on a couple of collaborations in the past, and they’ve just introduced two new styles that I think you’ll love.

The bag pictured above is the Minnie Mouse Diaper Bag by Babymel, and comes in a super cute satchel style. The bag includes a heart-shaped Disney Baby tag, a built-in insulated bottle holder, and plenty of interior pockets. Price: $89.95, on sale for $62.96.

The black and white Mickey Mouse Diaper Bag by Storksak is a gender neutral option and comes in a stylish black and white polka dot print. This one is made from a water repellent nylon and includes a padded changing mat and insulated bottle holder. Price: $129.95, on sale now for $90.96.

10 Outside-the-Box Push Presents for New Moms

Have you heard the term “push present?” Basically, it’s a gift for a new mama, given to her after she has given birth. Usually the father of the baby is responsible for gifting the push present. This idea is a new one and is often controversial. Some women feel like it’s an unnecessary thing that puts extra pressure on dad, while others feel it’s certainly a nice gesture after a long pregnancy and delivery. Typically, the push present is jewelry. It doesn’t have to be extravagant or expensive. In fact, a lot of women are given something custom made with the baby’s name or initials. But, if you are like me, jewelry isn’t always desired. I’d rather receive something unique and outside the box. Here are 10 creative push presents for new moms…
