There is certainly something magical about watching a baby sleep. When my girls were tiny, I loved being able to plop them down just about anywhere and watch them nap. Sometimes, they'd stretch out and do funny things with their hands. Sometimes they'd scrunch up and snuggle in close. When I came across the work of Adele Enersen, I fell in love. Her photography is so creative and unique. She has two books out: When My Baby Dreams and When My Baby Dreams of Fairy Tales. Click through to see some of her amazing photo styling. - By Lacy Stroessner

I am always intrigued when it comes to how parents choose their children's names. EVERYONE has a story, and I prefer to hear those rather than the birth story. We have all asked our parents at some point why they named us what they did, and our children will do the same. All parents have that "A-HA" baby name moment, and it can come from the most unexpected places - a book, a TV show, a celebrity or a popular brand. - By Maria Jose OvalleRead More »from Would You Dare? 8 Surprising Baby Names Inspired by Brands
While looking for baby names, I remember falling in love with quite a few nicknames only to realize that I couldn't stand their more formal version and felt like I needed to nix the name because of it. Perhaps some of you have felt the same? Maybe you fell in love with the name "Minnie" but weren't so keen on it's full-length version…the dated sounding "Minerva." Well, I'd like to think that sometimes nicknames make the best baby names. Here are 30 nicknames that have great baby name potential.If you love nicknames, you'll love this baby name list! - By Lauren Hartmann

Nothing will entertain your child like her sibling Tomorrow, my second child turns six months old, which means I've now spent half a year as a parent of two little children.Read More »from 12 Things You Don't Realize Until You Have Your Second Baby
Here's are some truths I've learned:
1. You WILL love your second baby just as much as your first.
I wasn't sure if it was possible, but she's proved me wrong. I love her so much my heart wants to burst wide open.
2. It is a rare night when you aren't woken up at least once.
My baby isn't sleeping through the night yet, but my older child, who has slept through the night since seven weeks old, now often wakes up in the night disoriented or frantically asking if there are tigers in Texas.

3. You will feel like the most capable person alive when you go grocery shopping by yourself with two children.
And you will look at people with three or more children and wonder if they have super powers.
4. When your older child sees your snuggly new baby, they might decide to get a little snugglier themselves.
And I'm not complaining about
5 simple and easy ways to add pops of color to baby's room The funniest thing about having an all white and beige, neutral nursery is the ability to add fun pops of color whenever and wherever I choose. Pops of color keep the nursery bright, cheerful, and anything but boring, and when done sparingly, it still keeps the room calm and subtle. With all of our furniture being pure white, including bookshelves and window coverings, and beige carpet, bright doses of color all around the room also keep it feeling playful and well, like a kid's room! Here are my favorite ways to add bright splashes of color throughout the room.Read More »from 5 Easy Ways to Add Pops of Color to Baby's Room
1. Crib Sheets:
Fresh, new sheets are a quick and inexpensive way to add bright doses of color throughout the room. It's fun to experiment with different patterns and colors. And since most crib bedding sells sheets separately, you can really have fun switching things up a lot. My baby drools a ton too, so our sheets get pretty stained pretty quick, so it's a fun, yet much needed, change we make every couple of months.

How to spot the teething woes.
Elvie has seemed a little out of sorts lately. She's still been her happy self, but she's just been a little bit off. I knew that she was working on cutting some teeth, but I didn't realize how many things that were going on were related to teething. Before, we had drool and a tiny bit of fussiness that was relieved by teething tablets or ibuprofen. Then up a tooth would pop, and she was done. This time, though, it turns out she is cutting a molar, and the symptoms are different.
In addition to a quick check-in with our pediatrician, I've been consulting with other moms, and it turns out that none of the symptoms she's experiencing are unusual for toddlers cutting a molar. Sure enough, a little corner of a molar popped up this afternoon. Here are the six symptoms she's had that turned out to be tooth-related. I can't wait to have that tooth all the way in so she can start feeling better. If your little sweetheart is experiencing these same things, we can commiserate.1.
