Boy Mom?

As a mommy to a little girl, I was a major expert on pink, ruffles and bows. (Although I can't get my 2 year old to wear a bow in her hair--where have I gone wrong??) But being a boy mom is new territory! The good news is--the diaper changes are not as bad as I expected thanks to some good tips from friends, and the clothes are way cuter than I thought!

And the best part is this boyish grin:)



When I found out I was having a boy, I created this layout about my thoughts on the subject.



I used one of my favorite color combos--blue and yellow!


I also brought in my scallop punch, and some woodgrain. And a bow! Who says you can't have bows on boy pages? (at least this one is blue!)


Reading this layout takes me right back to the excitement and anticipation of pregnancy. I love being pregnant, but the newborn phase is much harder for me. Adding in Moshe's crazy birth, and this newborn adjustment was even harder. But every day gets better, and I'm falling more in love with my new life and sweet boy every day.


Boy Mama-hood--new territory indeed.

So tell me, what are YOUR favorite colors for boy layouts?

  1. That page is sweet - but that grin is over the top adorable. I don't do many straight blue layouts, but lots of soft green mixed with blue and yellow.

  6. I'm only a girl mom but I will say the transition from 1-2 is harder than any other. But eventually you get the hang of it (most of the time!) : )

  7. I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog? Cccam Server Its very well written; I love what you've got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. You've got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
