Baby Fever, that is. And I have it. (I also have Bieber Fever, but that's another post for another day)

It all started when I went home for Thanksgiving. I finally got to meet Laura's precious little Grayson, who was so adorable and sweet despite being sick. 

(This is not Grayson, BTW...just an incredibly adorable babe)
Then we found out that Doug's cousin, Angela and her husband Brandon, are expecting a baby girl in March. 

Then Allison McCleskey joined us for our Thanksgiving feast...her and her hubby Andrew are expecting their first as well! I relished in every detail they told me- names, nursery ideas...and they are starting a blog so I can continue to soak up all of the baby excitement! 

And then when I thought all of the baby madness was over, there happened to be the most beautiful family on our flight home, complete with 2 of the most precious kids I've ever seen. Doug told me I should probably stop smiling/staring at them so much, for their parents may think I'd snatch them (at that moment, I wouldn't put it past me....they were that cute)

One of my favorite conversation topics of all time is discussing baby names. It's a frequent discussion in our house. Why are boy names so difficult? We have several girl names but only one or two boy names.

Basically, babies have been on the brain A LOT lately. And that's a good and bad thing. Good because it's SO.MUCH.FUN. to think about. But bad because I know it isn't the right time for us for a couple more years. And the waiting is a little difficult for someone whose only dream as a little girl was to be a mom. But until the time is right, I will continue to treat Maisy and Pep like my children :)

My first Halloween, as a kitten

I say baby fever is way better than Bieber fever! LOL

I have the fever too. A total of 7 family members and friends are having babies in 2012. ha! I'm right there with you.

First, I'm SO glad you found my blog and that know I am lucky to see your sweet blog. I can't wait to read more!

Second, I can completely understand having baby fever but knowing it is not the right time. The same is for my husband and I, and everyone around is having babies right now!

I have the fever as well! Its sooo bad around the holidays! We're planning on holding off for awhile too but its just so hard when I see all these cute babies I just want to cuddle and dress up all cute :)

Megan said... Best Blogger Tips

Nooooo, don't wait!! Babies now!! Haha. Just kidding! We are in the same boat as y'all!!

Julie, just consider yourself lucky to have a husband already to have babies with eventually! I am the same way and all I want is a hubby to dream about babies with! I constantly think about names and I have wanted to be a mom since I was old enough to decide things for myself. It is a darn shame you are in Cali now...I feel as if we would be new bffs after I move back home :) hahaha

Brittany said... Best Blogger Tips

OH MY GOSH, JULIE!!! This whole post had me smiling like an idiot for 20 minutes. Here's why:

1. I love babies. More than anything. More than football, hockey, guys, ice cream, etc.

2. My friends ALWAYS tell me not to steal cute ones that I see.

3. The thought of you having a baby and me being his/her friend sends me over the edge with excitement. I'm not kidding.

4. I was tempted to save that picture of you as a kitten. Cutest thing ever.

5. It's TOTALLY okay for Maisy and Pep to be your babies! They have the BEST parents ever! :)

haha I have the fever too! I love that everyone's comments say they do too.. we can all dream together :) and how ironic that we have had a boy named picked out since before we were even married, but girl names we toss around and never agree on! so glad you found my blog, excited to get to know you!

Unknown said... Best Blogger Tips

I think we ALL have baby fever sometimes. I know that I have it a lot more often than I'd like...

The time will come, probably sooner rather than later, for you. But for now, I hope you two enjoy each other :)

True story that boys names are harder! We didnt decide on a boys' name with either of ours until the last minute. Just saw that you moved from ATL to CA, we are recent NC to CA people and definitely still adjusting. How do you like it?

Katie @ minivan diva said... Best Blogger Tips

You will be so glad that you had this time with your husband once you have kids. Relish it and let it be your time to build a super strong foundation. Have children is such a blessing, but it the hardest job on the planet. Of course they are worth it! : )

I read that you moved to Irvine. We used to live in Orange County (San Clemente) for 7 years. We now live in San Diego County. I hope the adjustment has been smooth for you.

Take care!

Popped in to say hi! My husband and I are the same way--we have tons of girl names but no boys!

Unknown said... Best Blogger Tips

so sweet!!

Oh - Fancy That.

Heather said... Best Blogger Tips

I definitely have Beiber fever. There's no denying that.

And I'm already knocked up, so I'm in favor of everyone else joining me. ;)

Lauren said... Best Blogger Tips

baby fever is definitely dangerous! i had it last fall and look where I'm at right now!

Mandy@OrangeAutumn said... Best Blogger Tips

It's difficult waiting for something you want NOW. You're so cute in your Halloween picture!! :)

Carlie said... Best Blogger Tips

Oh my gosh! We have this in common! I think we can be moms in waiting together! haha. It is so hard not to want a baby when they are so cute, and all my friends are pregnant or have had babies recently. Cute baby pics by the way!

Natalie said... Best Blogger Tips

It seems that babies are everywhere right now! I know so many people who are pregnant right now. These are some cute baby pics...and of course yours as a kitten! New follower :)

Phoebe Jan said... Best Blogger Tips

Don't worry! You're not the only one! Sometimes I get the "fever" too and I'm not even married nor am I ready for such a big responsibility like that! I think you're right though... in the mean time I might just settle for having dog children. Haha!

Daniela said... Best Blogger Tips

What are the names you've picked out if you had a girl? For me it's the opposite ! I have the boy names down pat..

amy b.s. said... Best Blogger Tips

babies are too fun and so cute!

Unknown said... Best Blogger Tips

Such sweet babies! :) I love thinking of baby names as well... but it's hard to think of good ones.

Have a lovely day!

And thank you so much for visiting my blog and for the super sweet comment. I so greatly appreciate it.


Lindsay said... Best Blogger Tips

I know what you mean! I have baby fever right now too and I just got married 7 months ago! I think it's worse during the holidays because kids are just so darn fun at Christmas time!

Johanna said... Best Blogger Tips

Love that picture of you. Thanks for leaving the sweet note today!

Jessica said... Best Blogger Tips

Those babies are so adorable. You cannot help but look at them and smile.

Meggan said... Best Blogger Tips

Aww I know what you mean every time I see a cute baby, I think "I want one!"

Mrs. Pancakes said... Best Blogger Tips

Allison said... Best Blogger Tips

I love babies, but I haven't gotten "the fever" yet. My furbabies keep me happy for now. :) Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. Now following yours!

Unknown said... Best Blogger Tips

This is all so true. I can totally relate. I completely understand wanting to be a mom. It's all I've ever dreamed of too. We are dealing with infertility, so it is hard when baby is on the brain. But hang in there and hopefully your time will come soon and we'll be looking at photos of YOUR sweet baby!

ChavezHp said... Best Blogger Tips

I used to have baby fever until I started nannying and I am like I don't know if I want kids...(i know I do, but seriously not the right moment right now!) What are your baby boy names and girl?
