We want to share with you a printable that expresses the feelings of every mom with a new baby, a new bride who gets to spend the rest of her life with the man of her dreams, or maybe it is a best friend you cannot imagine life without. No matter what the reason this saying inspires us all when we are with that special someone–whoever they may be.
There is so much wisdom to be found in the Bible. Each time you read it you find something new, or gain a deeper understanding of a concept you are already familiar with. Along with this, it gives us a broader perspective on the things that are most important in life. The scripture printable below is a favorite and reminds us where pure and lasting joy comes from:

Using an invite to announce to friends and family to your little one’s special day, not only helps them save the date, it also gives a sense of formality.

It will also impress on them that you, and your family, value their time and support.
Your invitation can be as unique as your precious little one. However, you want to make sure your invitations convey sufficient info that is clear, timely and looks great too! This Free template has fields for all the important details for you special day.
Invitations for Guests Invited to the Celebration Afterwards
Don’t forget to invite guests to the celebration afterwards. We find it is easiest to include a small card in the envelope along with the christening invitation to let them know when and where the party will be held.
When to send the invites…
Sending your christening invitations out at least a month in advance will allow loved ones enough time to make adjustments in their calendar. This time frame also allows sufficient time for those who may live far away to get their travel plans set.
As life moves along at such a fast pace I can’t help but marvel at my children. They learn and grow so quickly. I feel immense joy as I watch them progress and adjust to life. No matter how “grown up” they seem to get each day, it never ceases to amaze me how they still play without a care in the world. We adults can learn so much from children. Let’s take their lead and find time to play with them, and (no matter how old we get) in our hearts–Never Grow Up!
“If you want to find greatness, don’t go to the throne, go to the cradle.”

Preparing for a new baby can be a daunting task! You find yourself wondering all sorts of things you’ve never thought of. Should I go with disposable diapers or cloth diapering? How many burp cloths will I need? Should I invest in a good baby monitor or spend more for a stroller? We’ve been there. We know all newborns are different. Some spit up more than others. Some take pacifiers. Some don’t. The same mom will swear by a different brand of diapers for each baby. How do you know what you’ll need?
Don’t stress! We talked to a panel of experienced moms and came up with a list they all agree on. This will ease your mind! They suggest you have these items on hand when bringing baby home from the hospital. Most parents wait until they know the gender to start shopping. Our moms suggest you leave yourself plenty of time to organize baby’s gear and set up the nursery. The last trimester can sneak up on you. And an expecting mom’s energy is easily depleted by then. So, grab the list and get started! We hope you enjoy this free printable new baby checklist!
