Even if you're not having twins, take a look at these popular girl's and boy's names that are flip sides of the same coin: Emma and Emmett, Olivia and Oliver, Grace and Grayson.

The Empire Strikes Back Ancient Roman names are the new biblical names (The Hunger Games made this trend explode). Consider Atticus, Cato, Maximus, and Rufus.…

6 to 12 months : the scientist

I have brilliant kids. At birth, my sons already had trillions of brain cells just waiting to be connected and stimulated. “Their potential to learn so much was all right there from the start,” says Marcy Guddemi, Ph.D., executive director of the Gesell Institute of Child Development research, education, and advocacy center in New Haven, CT. (The same holds true for all kids—but still!) While I want to do everything in my power to ensure my little guys' minds are top-notch, Guddemi reminds me that much of the recent drive to create future Nobel Prize winners (Read at 3! Learn Cantonese by kindergarten!) has made no difference: Children today reach cognitive milestones at the very same rate they did 80-plus years ago, says Guddemi, noting a 2010 Gesell Institute study.…

how it all started

For those of you who don't know me, I'm one of the original cast members of Bravo's hit reality television series The Real Housewives of New Jersey. I signed on to this show back in 2008 without taking into consideration how much my life could change. I never stopped to think that there would be a greater purpose to it. You see, my 3-year-old son, Nicholas, has autism. We kept it under wraps until we could figure out what was wrong, and what we were going to do about it, but that time has come. Honestly, I'm glad it's out there. I don't think people should be afraid or ashamed to share their struggles. When you open up, you often find that it's the support and generosity of others that can…

MY PHILOSOPHY: Weelicious is about making kids great, healthy eaters from day one—or year 6 if you're just getting started—while also making kitchen time easy for parents. I went to culinary school and consider myself a pretty good cook, but when I had my kids, Kenya, 6, and Chloe, 4, I quickly realized I didn't have a clue how to cook for them. Kids experience food—its texture, taste, shape, color—differently than we do, and delicious recipes alone didn't cut it. I needed strategies, too, and now I'm going to share them with you. If I've learned one thing, it's the more you involve kids in the process, the more excited they become about eating. Let's get your kids in the kitchen and make cooking and eating fun for everyone!
