I am really excited to announce my Baby Shower Extravaganza! Right here on Penny Pinching Diva, for the entire month of June and up until baby girl gets here, I will be hosting reviews on products that I have found and fallen in love with, hosting giveaways for some of these really nice products, as well as writing informative articles (such as how to make homemade baby food, making a tutu for your own little girl, and getting started with cloth diapering) as well as interviewing some really awesome women/moms.

I plan on taking the entire month of June and celebrating the soon-to-be-birth of my daughter.

I have a lot of fun things coming up and I can’t wait to get started. I believe that the birth of EVERY child, no matter how many you give birth to or adopt, should be celebrated and I plan on celebrating this birth as much as possible.

So sit back and get ready for a month full of pink!

FIRST UP: Do you have any tips or advice for me on raising girls? I would love any advice that you can share with me in the comments. I plan on printing all of these out and including them in baby girls scrapbook. This way I will have a plethora of tips from family, friends, loved ones, and a boatload of women who have been where I am about to go. So share your tips, no matter how big or small, for raising little girls. My experience stops at raising boys, and if you have a son of your own you already know that they’re in a league of their own.

  1. When I had my daughter my mom told me “keep her talking!” when you make it ok to talk about what’s going on in her life, as she gets older and events take place in her life (peer pressure, boys, relationships, friends, etc) that you want & need to know about you won’t be in the dark because she’ll already be comfortable having an open dialogue with you about her life…God Bless You & your new baby girl, they are so much fun!

  2. Hi,

    I have five beautiful kids. I had all three boys first and then my two girls. My advice to you is girls are a whole lot different then boys. My husband and I thought we were “parents of the year” until our little girls were born….LOL…I love my girls but they do require more attention and have a lot more emotions going on then the boys….They are all Blessing and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Congratulations and God Bless!

  3. Girls will require the same amount of attention that their momma needs, like they say, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Keep baby powder away from their sensitive area, it can lead to more problems!

  4. I have 5 children. My first born is 24 (girl), the second is 21 (boy)…. the next is 2and a half (girl) the twins are 1and a half (boys)…so I have quite a span…LOL

    The one thing that really sticks out is self love. Girls/women are so pressured to look a certain way….based on the media, and society in general. Everywhere you look you see images of what this culture says is beautiful…

    If we as mothers are not careful our daughters can fall prey to the thoughts that they are not good enough… too fat, too dark, too this too that. Low self esteem is common.

    Be an encourager of your daughters natural beauty. I would suggest to any mother to “never” perm their daughters hair. This can be sticky subject. But what message do we send our daughters when we relax their hair? Are we saying that the hair that grows out of their scalps is not good enough? Or are we saying that it is too hard to maintain because it’s not straight or soft enough? Will they feel that their natural hair must be altered to be beautiful or accepted? This of course is my “opinion” but it’s based on much reading, personal experience and the experience of others….

    we must let our girls know that they are beautiful as they were created….their skin and hair is perfect. Beauty must be on the inside as well as the outside.

    Encourage your little girl that she is fine and lovely inside and out. Tell her everyday how great she is and then she won’t look to others for approval. Build her up from the inside out.

    I could go on from my soap box. But I’ll stop. I am very passionate about this issue and am glad you are asking about your little girl. we can all encourage each other about motherhood.
    Remember love her hair as is and she will too!

    Peace and blessings
