    Shana - The best part about being a Mom, is looking at your child and knowing that not only do you have someone to love for the rest of your life but knowing that you will always have the motivation to work harder and smile no matter how tough life gets. My child truly is a wonder and I couldn’t be more proud.ReplyCancel

    francine - I have two beautiful girls. (The big one is 4.5yrs old & and the little one will be 6mths old on the 21st!) It is amazing how time is flying!!! My favorite thing about it all is the time we get together in bed first thing in the morning. We wake up happy & drowsy and life is Perfect. The moment is filled with kisses, smiles and giggles. Before I know it, the big one wants cartoons & the little realizes that her diaper is wet…and our day has begun.ReplyCancel

    suzanne - Being pregnant right now, I love the feeling of having a little miracle growing inside me. A little being that can hear my voice, goes with me where I go, and keeps me company every moment of the day. Waking up each morning and being excited to soon meet this little one!ReplyCancel

    Erinn T - Since I’m very new at this momma thing (having a baby in your belly counts, right?) I would have to say I think it’s totally cool just knowing that you are making this wonderful and magical gift, that is going to bring so much love to you and family. And how it’s made both my marriage and myself so much better already.

    Lisa - My husband and I are 5 weeks away from the due date of our first baby! I cherish these final weeks, the kicks, the hiccups, even the aches and pains because I know once she is here I will miss the one time in my whole life when she was all mine <3 But trust me, I'm just as excited to share her with the world!ReplyCancel

    michele dyson - Hmmmm…best thing? Seeing your kiddos on the “good” days interacting, getting along with each other and just being friends. And the snugs at bedtime of course, gotta love those:)ReplyCancel

  • March 19, 2012 - 4:42 pm

    Jennifer martin - So exciting! I’m only 6 weeks, and the morning sickness has just now caught up to me, but the thing I love most about pregnancy (so far) is knowing that there’s a little person growing inside of me and that in 9 short months I’ll get to meet them! It’s surreal to think about, but I cannot wait πŸ™‚


  • March 19, 2012 - 4:43 pm

    Carolyn - I love those first baby smiles! I can’t wait to see some of those this summer when we welcome our second little girl! <3ReplyCancel

  • March 19, 2012 - 4:45 pm

    Lindsay - Even as I enter the last few weeks of pregnancy, I am in awe of the magic of it all. I can’t say that I love the heartburn…but I do love every second of being a Momma to my son and soon to be daughter:) I love the snuggles, funny little stories and watching them discover all that the world has to offer.

    (I would also love to nurse my sweet baby girl in style under one of these beautiful scarves!)ReplyCancel

  • March 19, 2012 - 4:47 pm

    Chelsey - I am expecting my first in 6 weeks. I think definetly the little one’s response to my touch on my belly is the best thing about being pregnant…and I think I look forward most to the amazing change this will make in my life, I just know that I will never look at life the same…all the little things that I used to think were so important, and all the energy we spend sometimes on complaining about life will all seem so obsolete once I lay my eyes on this precious gift.ReplyCancel

  • March 19, 2012 - 4:47 pm

    Rhonda - My favorite thing about being a mom is getting to be the one my kids come to with there smiles when they are proud of themselves or the one they come to when they are scared or sick. Nothing feels better than that!ReplyCancel

  • March 19, 2012 - 4:49 pm

    Tamara - My favourite part was seeing the 3D ultrasound and then feeling kicks and turns afterwards and being able to picture that cute little face in there! I cannot wait to meet him/her! <3ReplyCancel

  • March 19, 2012 - 4:56 pm

    christina a - one my favorite things about being pregnant is thinking about what the child in my womb will look like. i am pregnant with my 3rd and I wonder, will he/she look more like my son or my daughter? I wonder about how our lives will change when the baby gets here. One of my favorite things about having a baby is nursing. I nursed my son for 8 months and my daughter for 26 months. The bond that forms between mother & babe during nursing is a priceless bond.ReplyCancel

  • March 19, 2012 - 4:56 pm

    Emily Clark Montgomery - What a great design and idea! I would love to win one. I’m pregnant with my second baby and due in the next couple weeks (give or take). I nursed my first and loved it. For me, my favorite part of motherhood is how it has encouraged me to look at it more naturally. Whether it has been the birth itself, co-sleeping, nursing or many other aspects of motherhood.

    Thank you Andrea and Maria for this special giveaway! πŸ™‚ReplyCancel

  • March 19, 2012 - 5:06 pm

  • March 19, 2012 - 6:06 pm

    Haley - I’m pretty sure we’re done having kids, but I loved being pregnant, and I love that scarf. Wish they had that when I was nursing the first time! Or maybe they did and I just didn’t know about it πŸ˜‰ I loved every little kick I felt, I still miss that feeling sometimes. Being tired and huge was fine by me, just feeling those little movements made my heart skip a beat.ReplyCancel

    Chantelle - I have 3 babies, 10, 2 and 4 months and the best part about being a mommy is getting see them grow and learn and be there for them through all the smiles and tears and that they are so honest and true .

  • March 19, 2012 - 7:20 pm

    Jessica - The best thing about being a mother is that you’re always learning! I recently had my 4th baby and everyday is a learning day…everyday I’m learning more about this new little person and their personality. I’m learning everyday how to love more selflessly. I’m learning just how much I was loved and everything my mom did to care for me…ReplyCancel

  • March 19, 2012 - 7:32 pm

    Jocelyne - Right now I am expecting my first child and am due in seven weeks. My favourite part of pregnancy is likely the fact that selfishly, he is *all mine* right now….I don’t have to share the kicks and movements and we have our own private time….Soon enough I will have to share him with the world–and his dad!ReplyCancel

  • March 19, 2012 - 7:41 pm

    Christina - I would love to win one for my friend, Bethany, who is pregnant for the first time with a little boy, also known as “The Grape” πŸ™‚ I am loving a lot about life right now, specifically my friends and the many blessings I’ve been given.

  • March 19, 2012 - 8:27 pm

    casie b. - Heart-melting smiles, 3 month old giggles, and 3 year olds randomly saying “I love you mama!”. Also quite partial to the three year old saying “MMM mom, that smells delicious!” when I take time to cook.ReplyCancel

  • March 19, 2012 - 8:28 pm

    Erin - I am a first time mama (1 month and 1 week) and the best thing about being a mom so far is seeing him smile at me. It just makes my heart so happy. I’m also extremely proud of my pregnancy and after being 2 weeks overdue and induced, I stuck to my birth plan and delivered that 9 lb baby naturally πŸ™‚ReplyCancel

  • March 19, 2012 - 8:28 pm

I am always wearing a scarf AND lugging a nursing cover and this would end my issues πŸ˜‰ I am a mommy of 3 (5yr old boy, 2 yr old boy and 6 month old girl) and watching them interact with each other and play and love each other is one of my most favorite things about being a mommy. My boys adore their little sister and I hope it is always that way!ReplyCancel

    kalli - I’m 34 weeks along and although I’m in the “uncomfortable” phase of pregnancy I still love it. I love when he reacts to my voice by stretching or moving around. I can’t wait to meet this little guy!

  • March 20, 2012 - 2:42 pm

    Shannon - These scarves/nursing covers are a brilliant idea (& lovely to boot)! My wee wriggler is incredibly curious about the world around her & is always popping off & flapping my current nursing cover around like she is playing a parachute game. With a coverboo I feel pretty confident that we could keep my nipples just between us!

    Nearly 6 months into mamahood, I must say that it is my great good fortune to participate in my little one’s exploration of her ever expanding world. She takes such great joy in each new discovery & milestone achieved that, even in the middle of the night when she wakes practicing new sounds or movements, my heart lights up. Experiencing the world through her eyes is a delight. My favorite!ReplyCancel
