Duana Names: Prayer for the Weary

Hi Duana, I write to you as a disillusioned name nerd. I've been looking forward to naming a baby for a long time, but now that my husband and I are expecting a little boy, it turns out to be a lot harder and less fun than I expected. Basically, all of the boy names I thought were adorable and fun (Milo, August, even your fave Otto) ended up feeling too trendy or precious or time-stamped when I really considered attaching them to a human for the rest of his life. Full Article

Hi Hayley, I am very active, and I do cardio 6 times a week, changing it up between treadmill running, HIIT on the treadmill, and the Elliptical. I am doing the P90X Ab Ripper twice a week, and after my long runs I do few minutes of rowing, biceps, triceps and some fitness ball exercises. So I do a lot, or at least I think I do? My goal was never to lose any weight but only to tone my body, which all of the above is doing very well. Full Article

Hi Duana, Almost 10 years after the birth of our first daughter, Lily, my husband and I are expecting a second baby girl. This pregnancy was a very big surprise, since, as the result of a complications from a chronic disease, I was told I couldn't have any more children. Anyway, she is due soon and we still can't seem to settle upon a name. Full Article

Everybody’s all about these Stella McCartneys. This is the second or third time I’ve posted style shots of them because I think they’re flattering on any leg. The problem? It’s a one season shoe, maybe two. Probably I could wear them all summer and into the fall but that’s it. Full Article

Duana Names: Half the Choices is Still Many Choices

Hi Duana My due date is fast approaching on May 17.  My husband and I are expecting a boy and having a hard time agreeing on a name.  I initially didn't want to know the sex, but picking names turned out to be so difficult that I needed to cut our choices in half! We are Jewish and committed to picking a name which fits our culture (with an old testament name, or something else Jewish), and in an ideal world honouring a grandparent (initials S, R, M or A would be ideal). Full Article

Hi Hayley! Can you suggest any exercises to help alleviate back pain caused by carrying my toddler around? My sweet boy wants me to hold him all the time, and he's now over twenty pounds. My back aches all the time now. I actually went to my doctor because I was afraid I had injured myself, and my doctor just suggested that I hold my baby less, and try not to jut my right hip out when I do hold him. Full Article
