Baby Style with ZeeZeeZoo

Personalized Onesie c/o ZeeZeeZoo

Vanakkam and Sat Sri Akal my name is Aadhav- I am 2 months old! For his 2 month birthday, I wanted to celebrate our 2-States Baby. My family is from the state of Punjab (Bruaaah!) in India and my husband is Telugu and grew up in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. Heritage wise we are both Indian, but culturally we have our own language, festivals, and cuisines. While Baby Aadhav is growing up, I want to make sure that he learns and experiences both cultures. When I was looking for ways to introduce Aadhav to our North and South Indian backgrounds, I turned to one of my favorite children’s brands  – ZeeZeeZoo. As a Masi, I found the perfect gifts for my nephew and niece thanks to ZeeZeeZoo. As a mom, I discovered I could create personalized onesies for my little one. Vanakkam and Sat Sri Akal mean “Hello” in Tamil and Punjabi. I loved designing this outfit for Aadhav’s second month birthday to celebrate his 2-States background! Also so many of you asked me about the Diwali onesie I shared on Instagram. This onesie is also from ZeeZeeZoo! I ordered the outfit a week before Diwali and it arrived just in time for Aadhav’s first Diwali. I also received the new “Baby’s First Photo Cards” to celebrate Indian festivals and milestones such as baby’s first steps.  I would love to hear how you celebrate two cultures in the comments below!

The Ultimate guide to South Asian Baby Gifts Ft. ZeeZeeZoo

Every week it seems, I am getting amazing news, another friend is having a baby! Seeing your friends evolve from a single-gal to a bride-to-be, wifey, and now mother is a beautiful experience. With each phase, friendships grow stronger when you embrace change and help each other. During my transition from single-life to being a wife, I learned how important it is to be there for one another – during the good times and not-so-good times. While we all have busy lives, taking time to check in with friends, celebrate their success, and be there during the tough times is what friendship is all about. I’m thankful that I have such honest friends who candidly share their feelings during these life transitions. As a mother-to-be, my friends share that while they are excited and thankful to have a baby, there are a lot of nervous thoughts and anxiety that comes with it. Listening to my friends express how they feel without judgement – is what I strive for to be a good friend. As we all know, change is not easy. We’ve all been there when thoughts of doubt and “not good enough” creep in. Now days with social media, most people share what looks like a “perfect life”. Images of the perfect mom, wife, CEO, etc. are all around us while we are constantly told there is no such thing as having it all. Yes we get it, life is about trade offs. And more importantly how you embrace, handle, and accept those tradeoffs.  My goal is to be there for my friends as they go through the emotions and experiences of motherhood. Now on to the fun stuff. For this post, I teamed up with ZeeZeeZoo , a design-led children’s brand that celebrates the whimsy of a new parent. They design tees, onesies, learning tools, home decor and more (and ship globally)! Together we created the Ultimate guide to South Asian Baby Gifts!
