Being strong and brave is something that we talk about almost daily in our home.

With three little girls, it’s easy to tell them they’re pretty or cute or adorable. But we make a conscious effort to make sure they know how strong and brave, funny, and smart they are. We don’t want them growing up thinking that looks are the only important thing — we want them to have a diverse childhood. Instead of just playing with baby dolls, we want them exploring. We want them climbing trees and running through fields, throwing rocks, and exploring nature. We want them to be adventurers, and for these types of people there are bold baby names.
