Keepsake Newborn Baby Bracelets

Becoming a mama can be a bit overwhelming, help your bestie start a new family tradition with a beautiful heirloom pearl bracelet.

Baby Girl Monthly Stickers

New moms are known for filling up their news feeds with loads of pictures of their little ones, including photos of baby thoughtfully laid out on a neat backdrop with something like these monthly milestone stickers from the Maine Mom Boutique. These are a great way to track baby’s milestones and growth in photos. Nearly every mom will use these and may not think about adding them to her registry.

Duo Diary - for mom and baby.

Duo Diary

The Duo Diary doubles as a mom/baby gift as it helps mom to remember to track not only her newborn’s feedings, behavior, sleep patterns, diapers and more but it also encourages mom to take care of herself – because mama self-care is important. There is a food journal which encourages moms to keep track of water intake as well as a place to jot down any exercise and sleep. This is a great gift for any expectant mom and is something to hang onto, so she can look back in years to come on the details of those sleepy early days.

Personalized soft pink baby stroller blanket.{find the softy baby blankets at Pottery Barn}

Personalized Blankets

Blankets are a great gift for those tiny squishy babies! Look for high quality blankets, such as the Pottery Barn Chamois Stroller Blanket, which comes with a personalization option. These take-along blankets come in several color options and feel amazing – so softy! Perfect for her first trips out into the big wide word.

10 Diaper Bag Essentials

Don’t leave home without any of these diaper bag must-haves!

10 Diaper Bag Essentials - all the things you need to make sure that you have what you need when you're out and about with baby. ♥ Little Girl's Pearls #diaperbag #diaperbagessentials #whattoputinadiaperbag #perfectdiaperbag #diaperbagideas #littlegirlspearls

During your pre-baby days, you may have been able to breeze out of the door with a small handbag, your lipstick & phone. These days, you probably feel like it’s impossible to go anywhere without bringing half the nursery along. Here are a few essential items you should have in your diaper bag. (Hopefully this list helps you to confidently leave home with less, rather than lugging an overfilled bag around that is four times the weight of your baby.)  Better yet, make up an extra diaper bag and keep it in the car…just in case.  You never know!

Diapers and Wipes

This is obvious but, believe it or not, it does happen that moms forget – face it, you’re exhausted. It seems to happen when they are needed most – like on those quick, 5-minute trips to the store and baby decides it’s an excellent time to have a blow-out.  Seriously, remind me to tell you the Disneyland story – it *may* have involved us throwing away a lovely cloth diaper, because…ewwwww!!  You can never have too many spare diapers & wipies.

Extra Outfit for Baby

This is another thing that follows Murphy’s law: If you pack it, you will never need it, leave home without it and your little one is sure to make a big mess. Don’t risk it!

Hand Sanitizer

Because the world can be dirty and gross and you want to keep your sweet little one clean and germ-free. Plus her little hands touch everything & then always end up in her mouth.

Baby Socks

Socks have a sneaky way of disappearing. Especially if it’s chilly out, her little tootsies will get chilly when her socks decide to wander off.  They so tiny, an extra pair takes up almost no room at all in your diaper bag.

Water and Snacks for You

Have something handy for you for when hunger and thirst strike you and you need an energy boost. If you are breastfeeding, you need to stay well-hydrated and have plenty of snacks between meals to keep your production up.  Nuts make a great high-protein snack for when mama hunger strikes (or you forget to eat breakfast…).

Nursing Cover

Speaking of breastfeeding, you absolutely shouldn’t feel obligated to cover up in public, but sometimes a situation arises when it’s nice to have a cute and stylish nursing cover handy to cover up with if you need to feed your darling while out-and-about, especially if it’s chilly.

Changing Mat

Changing tables in stores and restaurants often have a place to change baby but more often than not, those paper table liners are out of stock. Have your own to be certain you always have a sanitary place to lay baby for a change!  They have so many stylish options now that fold up into a little pouch.  How cute & convenient!

Extra Pacifier

Like socks, these tend to go missing at the most inopportune times. Have an extra (one, two, three…), so you aren’t left having to make a run to the nearest Target for more.

Diaper Cream

Diaper rash can be pretty nasty on some poor little sweeties. Have cream handy just in case a rash begins to rear its ugly head so you can nip it in the bud even when you’re out and about.

Baby Toy

Babies are definitely wiggly little creatures – especially during diaper changing. A good toy to keep in your bag is a teething toy to not only serve as a distraction but help soothe those sore gums when teeth are popping though!

Pastel Party Favors

Jenn over at Hostess with the Mostes suggests sending your guests home with cute party favors, like these Pastel Animal Jar Party Favors. All you need is a cute glass jar, plastic animal toys, and a little pastel paint. Fill the jar with tiny knick-knacks or candy!

Outdoor Teepee

Create an outdoor teepee for excellent photo opportunities and wows from your guests – tiny and big alike. If the weather is not favorable, move it inside! It’s a perfectly chic prop for your party décor.  This is the lace teepee we used for our flower field tea party.  We found the most beautiful vintage lace table cloth and simply draped it around 3 sticks tied together with a rope.  It was Boho fabulous.

Order a plain white cake for your party, in whatever shape or size you prefer. Either have the bakery add fresh and/or edible flowers for a gorgeous boho chic cake!  Or you can do what they did for Amelia’s beautiful outdoor first birthday party over at Style Me Pretty – they added silk flowers.  You can even wash them off after to save them as a beautiful keepsake and brighten up her big girl room!

Decorate with Paper Flowers

You can’t really get more boho than by adding tons of flowers. If you aren’t up for spending the money on real flowers, make paper flowers and place them throughout the party room! They will absolutely add a boho chic vibe to your décor!  After the party, you can decorate her big girl room with the flowers – not only a lovely memento of her first birthday bash, but something whimsical to cherish!!  Anastasia over at PaperPro Tutorials has some amazing DIY paper flower ideas, tips and tricks!

Darling Photo Banner

Take photos of your baby or have a special photo shoot of her in a boho-style outfit. Hang them from a banner of twine!  We just did this for our son’s 18th birthday and included photos from his entire life!  We then boxed up all the photos in a pretty box with some tissue paper and mailed them to his Great Grandma & Grandpa who couldn’t attend the party…such a lovely keepsake.  I can’t believe he’s already 18.  Go snuggle those babies, mama!!  They grow so very quickly.

November Birthstone – Citrine

Citrine, November’s golden birthstone, is the sun-shinyest gem.  I totally think that should be a word.

Before my boys were even born I sang, “You are my sunshine” the them.  I even changed the words to something happier – because that’s the kind of goofy mama that I am.

You are my sunshine.  My special sunshine.  You make me happy, when skies are gray.  You’ll never know dear, how much I love you, please don’t take my sunshine away.  The other night dear, while I lay sleeping, I dreamt I held you in my arms.  When I awoke dear, I wasn’t dreaming, so I snuggled you all the night long.

See – no hanging heads & crying…happier, and goofier! ♥  Just like me!

Personalized Initial Charm Necklace

Okay, some more juicy details about November’s birthstone, the beautiful sun-shiny citrine.  It has been used for centuries to create stunning jewelry pieces and art.  It varies in color from bright orange to brown to pale yellow.  I choose the more pastel yellow color for my jewelry because its subtle color pairs nicely with creamy pearls.

All of the Little Girl’s Pearls bracelets can be personalized with a “Big Sis” or “Lil Sis” charm with her birthstone.

Citrine, which was first documented all the way back in 1385, resembles topaz (November’s other birthstone).  These two beautiful stones have long been confused with each other.  Citrine is known for its healing properties because of it’s fabled ability to comfort, soothe and calm – releasing negative feelings and helping its wearer to embrace imagination.  It’s also known as the “merchant’s stone” because of stories that it attracts wealth (since I have an online shop, my mama brought my a beautiful citrine sphere that sits by my computer).

Darling Pearl and Birthstone Crystal Bracelet

Because such large citrines have been found over the centuries, the ancient Romans used them in intaglio work.  Intaglio jewels are gemstones that are carved into beautiful creatures or faces.  They’re so incredibly detailed and intricate.  Citrine is the perfect sunny palette for these amazing miniature works of art.  Citrine was also used to create the large, intricate jewels of the Art Deco period – worn by Hollywood starlets like Greta Garbo and Joan Crawford.  So you lovely November babies are in very good company!

Happy Birthday, you beautiful November baby!  Embrace your sunny birthstone, citrine. ♥

Your Sparkle Has Not Gone Unnoticed Phone Wallpaper

Hey there, lovely!  I just wanted to remind you that you are doing an AMAZING job.  I know mama-ing can be overwhelming.  My boys are teenagers, and I still have days where being a mama can seem a bit thankless.  But then I look into my boys’ baby blues and realize that it’s all worth it (even when they’re rolling them at me).  So snuggle up with those babies (tiny and big), and remember that you are doing the MOST IMPORTANT job and your sparkle is not going unnoticed.  It may not seem like it, but I guarantee they see your sparkle.

 

 

Sending you all of the mama love, support, and virtual hugs in the world!! ♥

Here’s a little reminder – a wallpaper for your phone, so you never forget that your sparkle is most definitely noticed.  Keep shining on, you sweet mama.

Do you love this or know someone else who needs a little encouragement & unexpected joy?  Pretty please share on Pinterest – that would make my heart so very happy. ♥
