Having a second child comes with many blessings that shift your life in directions that you could have never imagined. To share with you guys, I needed some personal time to realign priorities and focus on taking care of our family’s newest addition, Sienna.
Now that Sienna is more independent - eating solid foods, trying to stand-up by herself, and sleeping more on a regular schedule - I finally felt ready to re-engage my energy back into Laia Baby.
Laia Baby started off as just an idea from a mom who felt the need for quality baby essentials that are consciously made. Our focus always has been on empowering women and creating a better world for our little ones. The company is not only a small business run by a mom but also serves as a space for every mom to share their unique walks in motherhood.
Motherhood can be scary, not knowing “what to expect” (literally) in any stage: pregnancy, labor, birth, infant & toddlerhood, and the list goes on. But when you hear from other moms who have gone through what you are going through, there is this sense of accountability and solidarity that comes with it.
Notes from Mom, a blog series I started on Laia Baby, was such a healing venue for me and our readers to say the least. There is a range of stories of moms from all different walks in life - first-time moms to grand-moms - that inspired me to rethink about what love is and how to love.
As much as motherhood is important though, ever since Sienna came into our life, the importance of ‘dad’ has been hitting me hard. Sienna absolutely loves Peter (Alaia does too but it’s a little different). Maybe her attachment to him formed from me being too busy running around taking care of Alaia… But for some reason, Sienna’s eyes are always locked into my husband’s and it really is fascinating to see that special bond forming between them.
So as I enter this next phase of Laia Baby, I would like to introduce a new series called Notes from Dad. Alongside with Notes from Mom, we will be featuring stories of dads and their unique walks in fatherhood. Our first post will be a special one, so stay tuned! ;)
If you are interested in being featured or know anyone who would like to contribute, please post a comment below or DM me on Instagram/Facebook and we would love to hear your story!
With much love,
