Push Present Gift Ideas

Push Present Gift Ideas

I am a firm believer in the push present. What is that you ask? Well, it’s a gift that your baby daddy should give you after you “push” your baby out. Even if you have a c-section you are entitled to gifts! After 10 months (whoever said it was nine is a LIAR!) of an emotional roller coaster ride that includes weight gain, unexplainable tears, uncomfortable pains, swollen feet and a whole batch of other pregnancy symptoms, you deserve a treat! Below are some push present gift ideas that I personally want. If you are preggers, feel free to take this gift guide and casually place it in front of your man so he gets the memo. You DESERVE it! Push Present Gift Ideas Push Present Gift Ideas Push present gift ideas Push Present Gift Ideas

 

1) Your new nuggets name on a personalized necklace.

2) Sexy heels you can look forward to rocking once the swelling goes down!

3) An awesome diaper bag.

4) A NON-diaper bag, aka a really fancy purse. You can’t go wrong with Chanel!

5) Your first family trip. I want to go here and here.

6) A spa day.

7) Jewelry- pretty much anything that sparkles!

8) A strong cocktail followed by a spicy tuna hand roll (or ten!)

Oscars 2014 Recap

Kate Hudson Oscars 2014

It’s that time of year again kitties where my mom and I ramble about the best and worst dressed at the Oscars 2014. I decided to throw Michael in the mix this year as well to have a guy’s perspective. All in all I was slightly underwhelmed by the red carpet. No major hits or misses… the highlight for me was witnessing the world’s best selfie. (See below). My top pick for best dressed was Kate Hudson. I thought she looked like perfection. What about you guys? Head on over to my channel to leave and comment and share what your top picks of the night were. As always I hope you have a wonderful day.

Baby Diaries: I’m Having a Water Birth!

Water Birth

Hello beauties! I’m currently in week 32 and feeling good. I know I kind of mentioned this in a previous Baby Diaries video, but I am excited to announce that I am officially having a water birth. I share some of my reasons in the video below, but basically it seems like the right decision for me. I’ve heard really great stories of empowerment from women that have had them and I feel like my body is strong and capable! Fingers crossed. I will definitely be sharing some of my water birth experience with you guys, so stay tuned. Last night Michael and I began our 6 week hypno babies class with my awesome doula. (Big thanks again to Myk and Andie for the referral!) These classes will help prep us for the big day by teaching us to meditate and stay in a calm mind set. I’ll talk more about the class in an upcoming Baby Diaries. Enjoy the video below and have a wonderful day! Water Birth

If you have had a water birth or you know anyone with a great water birth experience, please feel free to share them with me. I want to hear as many positive stories as possible.

3rd Trimester Updates on A Tale of Two Bumps

A tale of two bumps

Hello beauties! I’m so thrilled to be in my 3rd trimester and even more excited that I have less than nine weeks left. YIPEE! I can’t wait to meet my nug (and to not be pregnant). lol We just got a car seat sent to us yesterday and I keep picturing strapping baby Idris in and taking him for his first ride home from the birthing center. Ahh! My favorite part of being pregnant is still feeling my baby move around. It’s so reassuring to know he’s just hanging out in a nice, warm, safe sack, otherwise known as my stomach. Other than that, I’m very ready to go from pregnant to MOM. #HurryUpApril  On the latest episode of A Tale of Two Bumps Kayli and talk about our updates, ultrasounds and answer some of your questions. I hope you enjoy it! A tale of two bumpsA tale of two bumps
