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.

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.

Braver Stronger Smarter Free Printable

This, my friends, is one of my absolute favorite quotes of all time.  It’s hanging in my studio right now.  I look at it quite often.  It’s a great reminder…no matter what.  I know we all go through times when we fell “less than” or inadequate.  I have struggled with that my entire life.  It has taken me more than 40 times around the sun to come to a peace about my health issues, my body image and this crazy idea that was planted in my head many years ago that somehow I couldn’t accomplish my goals.

Braver

The thoughts in my head are sometimes so harsh.  They are definitely not things I would EVER think of saying to someone else.  But yet, I say them to myself.  Negative self-talk is really a big issue for me, do you struggle with it?  I’ve been trying to change the dialog I have with myself by being mindful of it.  After all, we mamas have a crazy amount of responsibilities on our plates.  We need a bit of self-care now and then!  Do you have any great ideas or tips to remind yourself to be gentle with yourself & quell the negative voices in your head?

Be gentle with yourself today.  Remember that you are Braver than you Believe, Stronger than you Seem & Smarter than you Think!!

You are doing a great job, Mama!  Keep it up.  I see you.  You are not alone ~ we are in this together.  So print this out and post it somewhere you can see it.  Share it with your kiddos & help them to {soar}.  Remember that *YOU* are absolutely {special} and {wonderful} and definitely “more than”. ♥

This is an 8″ x 10″ print that prints out right on a regular 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of paper.  I printed mine on photo paper, but white card stock works well, too.  If you run across any issues, just give me a holler.  Click on the image below to download your free printable.

10 Sweet Valentine Gift Card Message Ideas

Valentine’s Day isn’t really a romantic holiday around here.  My hubby has never been a practitioner of big romantic gestures, so ever since we welcomed our boys into our family, we have always treated Valentine’s Day as a great time to show them how very special they are to us!  I’m sure your sweetie daughters, granddaughters and nieces all know that they are important to you, but Valentine’s Day can be a fun time to celebrate your how much she means to you & make her feel extra special.

For our boys, Valentine’s Day has always been a day that we shower them with love and hugs and kisses and special little things like heart-shaped pancakes and special little notes.  Flowers, chocolate and conversation hearts sometimes make their way into our family day, but really it’s the little gestures of love and appreciation that make the day one of my favorite days of the year.

One of my favorite family traditions centers around the little mailbox we got each boy when they were little.  It’s a little red metal mail box (it’s absolutely precious), and each of our kiddos sets it outside of their room on February 1st.  Then every day through February 14th I leave them a new little note letting them know how much I appreciate them and love them.  I make sure to let them know what I love about them and why they are so special to our family.  I also leave little candies, toys, and other special goodies in their mailboxes.  Wouldn’t a keepsake pearl bracelet make the perfect gift for her mail box on Valentine’s day???

If you’re stumped on what to write to your special little Valentine, here are 10 Valentine’s Day gift card messages to help you show your littles how very much you love them!  There are 10 different messages & then below them I have included the messages written out in case you want to copy & paste any of the messages into your special gift card.

All you really need to do is to take a little extra time to make your little one feel happy and let her know she’s loved.  How about a special family dinner that you all make together?  A family walk around the block or to the park?  Or a quick trip out for her favorite ice cream (this is my boys’ favorite).  Family dance parties are also a big hit at our house.  Even now that the boys are older, they love being totally crazy and weird dancing around the house with hubby & I!

One thing that was surprising to me was that my youngest loves to pick me little bouquets of flowers for my office desk.  So I decided to pick him a little bouquet for his desk.  He was absolutely thrilled!  There are infinite ways to celebrate with your Valentine!

Whatever your plans for Valentine’s Day, start a fun tradition that you can repeat year after year.  Especially now that the boys are older, it’s fun to see how they’ve hung on to even the smallest of traditions – never forgetting *anything*.  Seriously, they have the minds of elephants!!  So have some fun with your little Valentine!!  They’ll remember it forever. ♥
