Adopt a star – Seriously!

My husband and I decided we wanted to do something really special for the date of our babies birth.

We wanted to give her something that would be completely unique, and something that would be inspiring at the same time.

adopting a starWe thought about all the usual gifts like bronzed baby shoes, a baby book ( which we also did), a sterling silver rattler. But we really wanted to do something different.

My husband is an amateur astrologist. And right now there’s a whole lot going on in astrology apparently due to some big satellite that’s taking a ton of pictures.

From what my hubby says, it’s going to change how we think about the skies.

He said there are already hundreds of new stars to be catalogued, and named.

And that’s when I thought how cool it would be if he found the star and named it after our new daughter.

Now yeah, there’s a good chance it could happen, but I wasn’t willing to bank our daughters memories on the fact of my husband finding a star in naming it after her. He probably end up naming it after his car or something stupid like that!

But after looking around the Internet a little bit, I came across a website that actually allows you to adopt a star.

Apparently been able to do this for a long time. I had no idea.

But I thought it was a really neat and unique baby gift.

I mean just think about it, imagine your mother giving you a certificate that says a star was adopted by you. I think it would make me feel pretty special.

So I went ahead and got the star. It took a few days to receive the certificate in the mail. But there it was, my daughter’s name on a star.

My husband and I went to the frame shop and had it framed. And it looks really beautiful.

We ended up putting it up in the babies room for now. Hoping that it will be there until the day she actually moves out of the house.

It almost looks like a diploma 🙂

But I’m really happy with it. It’s just something different than the normal run of the mill gifts people usually buy for their babies.

I think it’s a gift that’s as unique as she is.

Brighten Up Your House

So I was looking around the house the other day and I realized that it really felt a bit drab. You know, like “darkish” or “cavey” dark. It just didn’t feel like the fresh and light house I wanted my kids to be growing up in. So I figured why not brighten it up a […]
