The One Question That People Need to Stop Asking New Parents

As the mother of a brand new babe, I’ve gotten used to the well-meaning questions, comments, and advice that come from friends, family, and even strangers. Most of them don’t bother me in the least. I know that people are just trying to be nice and carry on a conversation. And I can appreciate that. But there is one question that always comes that really just irks me. I heard it with my first baby. I heard it with my second. And I’ve probably gotten asked this question at least 10 times since Margot was born…

5 Reasons Why Dads Deserve More Credit

For whatever reason, dads sometimes have this stereotype of being not so great and second to moms. Sure, history shows that dads used to be less involved in their kiddos’ lives, but I think times are changing. This day and age, parents are sharing the load. Moms AND dads are taking care of and raising children. Moms AND dads are cooking and cleaning. Moms AND dads are working and providing for their families. Moms AND dads are reading and singing to their children. Moms AND dads are parenting, together. Here are 5 reasons why I think dads deserve more credit…

25 Fancy Names for Baby Girls and the Adorable Nicknames That Go With Them

I remember thinking as a kid, that “Lacy” didn’t sound like a very grown-up name. It didn’t sound very fancy. Now that I’m grown and have children of my own, it doesn’t bother me one bit.

With any name, you’ve got to have a nickname picked out as well, so I’ve included some ideas for those as well. Enjoy!

Real Nursery Inspiration: Clive's Woodland Adventurer Room

Sharing nursery inspiration is one of my favorite things to do here at Disney Baby, so you can only imagine how exciting it is to be sharing my own little one’s nursery with you here! As soon as I found out we were having a boy, I knew that I wanted the theme of his nursery to be something that felt cozy, woodsy and something that rang true to our Pacific Northwest roots. I knew there would be plenty of Pendleton wool (we live in Oregon and Pendleton is a local love here), and a lot of wood accents. My other reason for choosing this theme is that it allowed me to pull items I already had around my home and repurpose them as nursery items. This entire room cost a total of zero dollars (aside from the $10 I spent on DIY art supplies) because they were all items I already owned. Score! Good design doesn’t have to be expensive – it just requires a little bit of creativity. Hope you enjoy my little Clive’s room!
