Name: Leomarlis Bojos Neighborhood: Inwood, Manhattan Baby’s Gender: Boy How would you describe your pregnant style? I would describe my pregnant style as very casual yet polished. I love wearing a crisp button up and a cool pair of sneakers, patterned dresses and jean jackets. I also enjoy accessorizing with a nice pair of Warby Parker glasses. They're my favorite! Have you had any challenges learning to dress your body during pregnancy? It is a challenge every day. Some days I simply feel much lighter and get dressed with ease. Other days, I have learned that I need to be comfortable with looking much larger and dress myself in clothing that drapes over my belly. I also have embraced wearing maternity pants. My first trimester I pretty much rejected the idea of wearing them while trying to slip into my stretchy Zara jeans. But during this third trimester, my maternity jeans have kept me so comfortable while running errands and at work. So far, what has surprised you most during your pregnancy? What has surprised me the most during my pregnancy has been my complete focus on making my home comfortable and getting things in order before the baby gets here. I think I have been "nesting" since my fifth month! Figuring out how to keep the energy right in my home for my new little family has brought me both stress and pleasure. What are you most looking forward to sharing with your baby? I am looking forward to the days where I can create art with my son and hang them up around our apartment. I also can’t wait to document his milestones. My boyfriend and I discussed starting a blog for him. He's a great photographer, so I am looking forward to seeing what we can create together. What’s your 5 registry essentials? 1. Bebe Confort Glider. I love the idea of being able to breastfeed and rock my baby to sleep at the same time. The glider is super comfortable and essential for keeping peace on those sleepless nights. 2. Baby Bjorn Baby Carrier. My boyfriend has been so excited to wear one.It was actually his only request for our registry. We live in Inwood, NYC and there are tons of local parks. So the Baby Bjorn will be exactly what we need for those long summer walks once the baby is born. 3. Babymoov Nutribaby Food Processor. I never thought I'd need one, but after doing my research I feel that this is an easy way to make and store food for the baby once he can have solids. Also, I think I'll enjoy searching for recipes on Pinterest so that the whole process doesn't have to be boring for me or the baby. 4. Oh Joy!'s City Nursery Collection. These sheets are so perfect for the baby's nursery and definitely my style. I love patterns and illustrations and this is simply a perfect collection! 5. Storksak Noa Diaper Bag. I was so elated when someone got this bag off my registry for me! All compartments and the mini-organizer bag are perfect for a city mom like me.

It's no secret that reading is one of the best things you can do for your baby.

Reading to your little one—even from a very young age—stimulates brain development and strengthens the parent-child bond. Reading helps babies develop language skills and make sense of the world around them. Fostering a love for books is a gift your children will treasure for the rest of their lives.

It can be a bit overwhelming to start your baby's first library, so we've created a guide featuring the best of the best—25 classic and new titles that will take you from baby's first day to their first birthday.

Whether I live next to you or across the country, social media makes it easy for us to stay updated on each other's lives and that's a wonderful thing. I love seeing pictures of your kids and I think it's great that you choose to share videos of your child singing, giggling and taking his or her first steps.

I simply choose not to share pregnant pictures, or even a family photo from the hospital once our daughter arrived because my pregnancy, birth and growing family are parts of my life I wanted to protect from the outside world.
