Kelly Clarkson is pregnant! The singer, who married husband Brandon Blackstock just last month, took to Twitter to publicly announce her happy news.
"I'm pregnant!!" she wrote. " Brandon and I are so excited! Best early Christmas present ever :)" Aww! Well, clearly they didn't waste any time. As a fan of Clarkson though, I couldn't be more thrilled for her!Continue Reading >
Oh my goodness, you HAVE to see this gorgeous video of two little twins holding on to each other as they get what seems to be one of the first baths of their very young lives.
Handled oh-so-gently by a loving nurse (who actually filmed the video to demonstrate a new bathing technique for newborns) the little brother/sister team cling to each other. It's not really even clear if they quite understand that they have been born and are longer in momma's belly, especially when the nurse submerges them up to their little faces and they're sort of floating, suspended in a spa bath that looks pretty darn relaxing, I have to say.Continue Reading >
I hope you're all doing well and preparing for the holidays! Me? I'm preparing for a different kind of holiday: meeting my baby!
As you know, I'm currently 36 weeks pregnant and as I shared last week, I'm getting anxious about having my baby! So, in order to combat some of that anxiousness, I've decided to focus on preparing myself for labor...here are three ways I'm doing that!Continue Reading >

New dad Anthony Stuart is a graphic designer. So it only makes sense that when he found out he and his wife, Kristi, were expecting, he decided he wanted to introduce his baby to the world in the most creative way possible!
He took a series of hilarious photos capturing Kristi's pregnancy and when his baby girl, Grace, was finally born in July, he started a blog called "Daddy's Little Prop" (ha!) to debut his final results. And the snapshots showing off little Grace to the public are so funny and adorable, you're pretty much guaranteed to laugh out loud.Continue Reading >
The first thing that comes to mind when I hear about these types of cases is: WHY!? We're in the 21st century! So how is it possible that ANOTHER Mexican woman was forced to give birth right on the street?! Is it that health care workers are dumb or just plain evil? Indolence just is not a good enough reason to explain what happened to poor Ruth Mendoza.Continue Reading >
I am not in the habit of watching birthing videos. It's just not my thing. I realize that the birthing process is a beautiful thing, but I am prone to squeamishness. Today, however I did watch an incredibly intense birth video and I am both in shock and in awe. Now, I know how babies are born, I've had two of my own. Even in an "easy" birth there is nothing easy about it. It's work and I'm pretty sure that's why it's called labor. I had both of my babies in a hospital, but having babies at home or outside of hospitals is not something that shocks me. I think it's great when people have home births. This particular birth video does not take place in a hospital or a home. It happens creek-side in the Daintree forest in Australia, one of the oldest rain forests in the world. The mother, Simone, had home births before and she really wanted to have one in nature.Continue Reading >
I hope you're all doing well, mamacitas. I am currently 35 weeks pregnant! Here's what I've got going on at the moment: sleepless nights (¡no duermo!), weight gain (estoy grande), heartburn, backaches (ouch!), and anxiety about giving birth. With all of this on my mind, I need to de-stress, so I decided to focus on one of the BEST things about having a baby--creating the nursery!Continue Reading >
