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!

It’s no secret that there is plenty of strange celebrity baby naming going on. It seems to be the current trend for stars to come up with names that are as obnoxious (so unique!), obscure and bizarre as they can conjure up.
Celebrity rockstars are amongst the most esteemed strange baby namers, to be sure. Which, as it were – isn’t a new thing and it’s all Frank Zappa’s fault. (Arguably.) What do you think? I actually like some of the names on this list, perhaps not all together in how some of them are paired in their never-ending-ness; but a few of them on their own are quite unique and lovely!
Whatever your opinions may be, a chuckle is to be had here. As long as you don’t take things too seriously.

Putting a child to sleep and just walking away is easier said than done.
No matter how tired I am, or how much work I need to get done, I can’t help but stop and stare at my sleeping babies. Even my oldest baby who is four is just precious to look at, and now with my newborn, Little L, I have a hard time looking away.
I trace her features with my eyes, I follow the lines of her lips, I gently swoop my fingertips over her eyelids, then brush my hand on her cheek. She may flutter with baby delight or let out a sigh and re-snuggle back in my arms. I dare anyone to try to resist that — it’s pretty much impossible.
Here are a few quotes and my own personal thoughts on sleeping babies because they are just magical. Enjoy and sweet sleeping!

My oldest daughter, Adair, is a daddy’s girl. I used to think it was just a phase because when her baby sister was born, she spent lots of extra time with her daddy. But now, her sister is a toddler, and it’s clearly not a phase. Addie is a daddy’s girl to her core. Some days, this makes me a bit sad. I wish I was the one she wanted to comfort her when she was scared or hurt. I wish I was the one she preferred to read her books. Instead, it’s her daddy. Always. Some days though, it’s pretty cool to see their bond. The way they love each other, the way they “get” each other – it’s pretty rare…
