baby fever.

last week at dinner h's brother asked me what my last name was and what i was going to do after the wedding. i responded with WE'RE GOING TO MAKE SOME BABIES! (clearly i misunderstood the question). the group laughed... until i figured it out. yep. not talking about that...o man did that just happen?! crazy cakes-take it down a notch. for the record i will be changing my last name... and yes, we plan to have a family... eventually. till then i can gawk at little ones and dream about nurseries without all that diaper responsibility. 


if you are feeling the baby fever check out a my favorite bloggers who are expecting:: kristen from a kapple a day, sydney from the daybook, sandy from sandy a la mode, bon bon from the whim wham life

do you have children? or do you want them in the future? what are your thoughts on adoption? 
(ideally we would like to have one or two children and then adopt).

  2. Ive been feeling the baby fever lately. I think there is like 3 woman in my family who is pregnant! I want one so bad. But for now I'm happy just playing with theirs and eventually (4 years) I'll get one :)

    I want to do the same, have two and adopt one.

    Lots of Love,

  3. Oh man, that sounds like something I would say...and then realize. Yes, I changed my last name, but took my old one and made it my middle name (I've got a thing about continuing to identify with my family). Yes, we want to have kids someday, but I've spent enough of my life as a babysitter and sometimes a nanny that I know I don't want them quite yet!

    Still, these babies are perfectly adorable.

  8. It is the hardest but most rewarding job in the universe!!!Being adopted myself as well as my husband...it's an amazing gift to give!!

  9. I've had baby fever my whole life it seems- my husband and I have two kids together and I adopted his daughter from his first marriage. I'd still love to have another eventually:)

  10. Every now and then I get baby fever and go and visit my nieces and nephew! We definitely want to have kids in the future, but we want a few more years of just us!

    ReplyDelete
  11. That just made me laugh- I love it! That is my happy thought for the day! My nieces contain any baby fever here. It's great to babysit and do fun stuff with them, but then give them back to their parents. :)

  12. I have two children. My daughter is 12 years old and my son just turned 1 years old. We tried for several years after my daughter with no luck & then 12 years later, I ended up pregnant. Of course by this point we had quit trying so it was quite a shock. Right after my son was born, I still had "baby fever". I had planned on having another as soon as he was a year old but NOW that he is mobile and moving everywhere, think I want to wait a bit longer!!!!!

  15. that's hilarious! I'm married 2 years now & had the baby fever until I realized how much fun married w/ no babies is ;)

  16. The little boy in the max costume is the cutest!! A good friend of mine had a little boy in February so I live through her. But I do want kids eventually, just in a few years. I think it's great you want to adopt!

    ReplyDelete
  17. omg those cheeks! so cute. i'm changing my name too and YES babies. lots of babies. just not yet ;)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Am sitting with my 6 month old now as I try to blog, eat breakfast and entertain her and the dog. Haha. It's insane, but a lot of fun. You will enjoy it when you are ready! :)

  19. Oh goodness, I guess when I can actually afford myself then I'll think about babies.

    ReplyDelete
  20. you are too cute. i love that you want to adopt too! that's so admirable! :) i personally am not ready yet for kids but i definitely want them!

    ReplyDelete
  21. This is an overload of preciousness. I think I will perpetually have baby fever. My husband and I both want to take it one child at a time and always stay open to if God wants to give us another life. We have two and hope we will have a large family. Adoption would be amazing. There are wayyy too many unwanted children.
    :) Can't wait till its your turn!

  22. i'm not sure i'll ever have baby fever, but i'm pretty sure the time is drawing near. but i do love looking at all the lovely nurseries people have. and if i could have one of those, maybe having a kiddo wouldn't be so scary to me! :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh, I know how you feel...I can't even walk by the baby department at Target without getting a little teary. We get to wait at least four more years until Robert is out of school, but then it's on :)

    I really do think that I want to adopt someday, even if we have our own biological children too. And if we can't have kids at all, we will definitely adopt.

    Even if it won't be for a while, I can't wait to follow along with you and your little family! Good luck!

    xoxo,
    Joelle

  25. Such a cute post! We definitely want children...maybe this year?! We'll have to see...

    ReplyDelete
  26. wait, no way! I'd love to have two children and then adopt too.

    I think I've had baby fever since I was a baby myself, no joke!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hahaha love the answer you gave! That is just too funny!! I always have baby fever and still look around at baby clothes and furniture to give me ideas for when the time comes for me! There's nothing wrong with having this fever!! It's in our blood! ;) That baby at the bottom right is just gorgeous!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Aw I am Crazy with Baby Fever! :D Don't worry!
    That's so funny though, I bet you will never ever live that down, and it will be brought up a lot! :D

    Keep gathering ideas for Nursery's and such! You never know!

  29. Oh my gosh! So freaking cute!!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Haha love the baby enthusiasm. You go girl! You make those babies!

    ReplyDelete
  31. haha girl, you crack me up! :D

    All (well most) of my friends have all started little families now. Truth be told, Luke & I are unsure if we want to have kids (we're hoping that changes with time...) I do LOVE kids, I guess we're just both afraid of all the changes that it would bring... Ok, writing that makes me sound like a total weirdo! :-/

    ReplyDelete
  32. oh my word. my baby fever is in full force. we can't have babies soon enough!! and adopt? heck yes :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. So funny! I'm getting married in May and yes, changing my name. Then due to lovely residency, we will probably wait a few years to have babies (I'd love to be financially very stable first). I think we will start with a dog!! but these pictures are too cute :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Yes, I'm married (last year was the 7-year itch), and we have 2 little boys (aged 7 and 6)...if I had another, it would be by adoption. And in terms of timing for babies...no time is really the RIGHT time (seriously, I'm not trying to be pessimistic). Parenting is HARD work (changing diapers is easy-peasy compared to waking up every 2 hrs to breastfeed, trying to take toddlers grocery shopping, or putting up with 7 year-old attitudes)! But, let me tell you...in SO many other ways (that obviously outweigh the negatives), having children makes life so much more meaningful! When you have kids, it's not all about YOU anymore, every decision you make is about what is best for them. Some couples (usually the logical ones), decide to put this off until they are ready (financially/personally/etc), and therefore have more time to enjoy each other prior to family-life. Others (usually the ones that think with their hearts instead of their heads, ie. ME), choose to have 'em young. And we'll get our couple time when we're 40 (which is only like 11 years away!) Either way, you do get BOTH :)

  36. I have a 2 year old boy and am due in October with our second boy :) after that, we're done. I would love to adopt but we think financially two is enough for us!

    I love that Max costume! My eldest is going to be Max for halloween, since he's my wild thing :)

  37. We have such baby fever! Just had a miscarriage so have to wait and it's killing me! Cannot wait! Two for sure and that's it! I would def adopt too!

  39. I Love babies and kids, and would love to have them, but I'm old and it would take a lot of surgery, money etc. Luckily I have a cute fur baby.

  44. I have baby fever on a daily basis. Sigh. Hubs says no and I say YES!! hehe

  45. Awww I've been nannying this summer and it's definitely made me broody...cuddles from babies are the best! My boyfriend has it too slightly but I've told him no babies before a ring on my finger and at least one more puppy :D

    ReplyDelete
  46. I definitely want babies....I actually can't wait to have them. I've dreamed about it my whole life, but have to meet a man and get married first. Ha. I also would love to adopt...we will see.

    Hilarious story, by the way.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Haha, love your story, I'm sure it was a little embarrassing at the time, but so funny :) Babies are so cute! Sometimes I can't wait to have them, but I've definitely got a while to go!

    ReplyDelete
  48. aww love that indian themed room and the girl's nursery! i do want kids! but not for like 6-7 years. and if I can't have them.....I'd be all for adoption!

    ReplyDelete
  49. This cracked me up like no one's business-too funny! I love being able to live through other people's baby fever-mine is still on the back burner!

    ReplyDelete
  50. ahh... baby fever had me just a month after getting married so the hubs got me a dog... then when there was no fever i got pregnant :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. Bahaha...that cracks me up! But it's okay for you to get a little excited about babies....as shown in your pictures, they are adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  52. haha that story is so funny - you got it on the brain, girl! and DEAR GOD that little one on the bottom right IS. SO. CUTE.

    sometimes i get the feva, but then i panic a little. maybe in the next couple of years!

    ReplyDelete
  53. what a sweet post- i LOVE that little girly yellow dress. yes i want kids- a big family too :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Just what I need: another super precious blogger to be pregnant! lol I love your little panic moment, but I'll tell you what my parents always told me: slow down and enjoy the moment. This is the last time in your life you will ever get to be *insert blank*. For you it's engaged and planning a wedding. And while it may seem stressful and the next step so much better, you will eventually miss this time. So slow down and soak it up.

  55. bahahaha! Paul says stuff like that all the time =) He's baby crazy and he doesnt know why. I asked him yesterday and he said "well we cant just stare at eachother for the rest of our lives... we're supposed to make babies!" oh gosh. not enough convincing for me yet ;) so scared!

    ReplyDelete
  56. This post is hilarious! I can imagine everyone's reaction after you say that... And ... I have a slight case of baby fever. But that is not a secret to the husband. It has never been haha.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Am I, like, the only 20something ladyblogger in existence who's never had baby fever...? Am I broken?

    ReplyDelete
  58. haha, that's so funny! whoops. :) i like working with kids in therapy and i love all the cute kid things i find on etsy/craft fairs, but i really don't ever want one of my own. i could maybe {Maybe} adopt when i'm older {maybe in my 40's}, but probably not. it's one of those things that makes me a total black sheep of blogland, but there it is. :)

    ReplyDelete
  59. This is hilarious, jillian!!! i love it :) One day you will have very cute babies!!! xoxoxo brynn

    ReplyDelete
