My little sister’s due date is exactly three weeks from today (see right: is she glamorous or what?). It’s her first baby – a little girl. She’s going to be a wonderful mama and I can’t wait to see how motherhood changes her (as it does everyone…almost always for the better).
Because she is thinking about birth a lot, I’ve been thinking a lot about it too. Actually, truth be told, I think about birth often anyway…daily even. I definitely consider the births of both of my two daughters to be two of the very best days of my life. Both experiences were empowering, life-changing, almost magical. Those memories dance before me in still frames…inspiring a serious kind of joy in my heart.
To commemorate and celebrate those days even further, I often wear a simple silver chain around my neck with two hand-graved squares at the end (just like the one on the left) – one square for each of my daughters. Etched gracefully and precisely into each delicate box is a set of tiny feet/hands, a name, a birth day, height, and weight. I get compliments every single time I wear it because it is so fragile, yet so meaningful.
Created by Tania (a mom of two and entrepreneur) at JULIAN & Co., the Birth Necklace Square ($59) is the perfect gift for any new mom. It’s lovely and simple – sure to be loved by any new mom (even the non-jewelry-wearing type). It’s the opposite of ostentatious. Instead, it is beautiful in a very down-to-earth, understated kind of way.
JULIAN & Co. offers a wide assortment of other necklaces to celebrate birth, parenthood, and children.
