Like our personalized baby gifts, the In Real Life series captures a moment in a wee one’s life, whether it’s their welcome into a family, a birthday, or a special milestone that deserves to be commemorated with a personalized growth chart, big sister tshirt, big brother t shirt, birthday tee or onesie, etc.
Today, we have our friend Whitney and her baby girl Miliana.
How old is Miliana?
-Miliana is 6 months old on March 18! 🙂 And I cannot believe that!
What are some fun changes you’ve noticed as of late with your baby girl?
-Lately she enjoys sitting up on her own and playing with her new blocks; she is very proud of the new view she has on life! She gives big smiles and can charm just about anyone with those blue eyes! She also smiles and giggles when we sing and dance with her (yes, we are those crazy parents)!
What did you enjoy most about decorating your nursery?
-When decorating her nursery, I loved finding a combination of old pieces and some new ones to use in her space. My mom and I had been collecting globes for a while and it was fun to put them to use. I hope the globes will give Miliana a desire to travel and experience the beauty all over the world. I love decorating with my mom and I am thankful she helped me create a room that will grow with Mili. The nursery has little treasures from important people in Miliana’s life and it is a great reminder of how much she is loved!
Anything you enjoyed most about being pregnant?
-While I was pregnant, I enjoyed knowing that she was always along for the ride and already becoming a part of how we do life. It was just the beginning of adventures with my little sidekick. The whole process is such a miracle!
Whitney, we know you have a very close relationship with your sisters — what is that like now that you are a mom? How are they enjoying being Aunts?
-My sisters mean the world to me, and thankfully that hasn’t changed since becoming a mom. I now have this pride and joy that I get to share with them! They really are the best aunts! Miliana is a lucky girl to have them in her life! From the moment they found out she was coming, they have been excited, supportive, loving and giving of their time (and gifts) to the tiny babe. Miliana is now just one of the girls!
Describe motherhood in 1 word:
-Motherhood is BALANCE.
Balance in enjoying every moment of each day, yet dreaming and preparing for her future. Balance in having information and knowledge, yet trusting my gut. Balance between mom guilt and pure mom joy. Balance in sacrificing myself for her, yet not losing myself. Balance in staying grounded when my love for her is so out of this world!

Thank you so much for sharing Whitney, we loved having you and Miliana be a part of our In Real Life series!
