Staying Alive

Hey there,

If you follow me on social media (Instagram to be more precise), then you most likely know that I've been quite down and out for the better part of the last three months or so. I have been grappling with different issues in my life, that have made me feel like I'm barely keeping my head above water. In fact, Baby Cocoa is the main reason why I have pushed myself to get up everyday and do what's necessary. You know the saying, "When it rains, it pours?" Well, it's been pouring and almost overflowing.

5 Baby Shower Tips| My Baby Shower Photos

Baby showers are one of the events most looked forward to during a woman's pregnancy. From having one or two or more parties thrown for her, to the baby shower gifts she'll receive, the baby shower is an important event. Typically they are planned and hosted by the mummy-to-be's family and/or friends. These days, baby shower themes run from Parisian to Hawaiian Luau to a Tea Party like mine. Check out the photos below and some helpful tips for hosting a baby shower.

Hey,

How's your week been? I've had a pretty good one - I'm kinda back to blogging, and I attended an event in Atlanta, hosted by Disney. I'll share more next week, or the week after. Right now, I'm in a state of confusion because I forgot my phone password and I'm not about to do a master reset and lose all my videos and photos of Baby Cocoa! Pray for me o!

Here's this week's set of links :)

Maternity Style - Baby Shower Dress

A baby shower is one of the highlights of being pregnant. Everyone comes together to celebrate your upcoming bundle of joy, and gives you lots of presents and advice on parenthood. Baby showers can be done in a bunch of different ways - just women, or coed along with the men. Some have baby shower themes - all you need to do is check out Bella Naija for some really creative and pretty baby showers they have featured. A big part of this event is figuring out what to wear to your baby shower.

Pregnancy Prayers

Being pregnant was a mixed bag of emotions for me. I was of course thrilled that we were finally pregnant, especially since I had publicly shared our struggle to get pregnant last year. And then once we got pregnant, there were the questions and sometimes fears about the pregnancy, especially since mine was high-risk for various reasons. It took me being pregnant to realize that going from conception to delivery is one of the biggest miracles out there.
