Things I Love Thursday | Baby Fever

I got a FEVER! And the only prescription…is little squish.

Yep, I have the baby fever. I am that creep making kissy faces at your bebeh in public places, making little squeals of glee when it smiles back at me.

Things I Love Thursday - Baby Fever

Papa Bear and I have been working on the whole baby thing for a couple of months, but I just recently got insurance (yay!), and headed off to the doc for some blood work. Unfortunately, I’m a little short on certain antibodies, so I need to get a couple of vaccinations, which mean we’re going to have to wait three months before we get back to it.

Boo for that. But at the same time, for every month I’m not pregnant, it’s another month closer to Papa Bear being done with school and us being back to two incomes. That’s not the worst thing in the world. And hey, we were planning on taking next month off anyway, because I have married two Christmas babies, and if I can avoid another poor kid hearing the “Christmas and birthday present” line, that’s just fine with me.

But still, I am absolutely gooshing out over all things kid and baby lately. With that in mind, let’s get to this week’s Things I Love Thursday!

Baby Bear's First Day of School

The wee one has been talking about her first day of school for weeks now, and it’s finally here. So was so jazzed to make friends and learn, and two seconds after entering the classroom, she could not care less about all of the parental units and grandma. She’s going to be teaching the class before long. So proud today.

A New Arrival!

Late Friday night we welcomed a new addition to the family, Baby Bear’s little sister!

No, not mine, I have not been secretly pregnant. Baby Bear’s mom and stepdad finally had Baby Bug, and our little extended/blended family just got a little bigger.

Baby Bug

Baby Bear is beyond excited, and so very sweet and careful with her new sister. Then when the hospital photographer came by to take pictures of the two little ones together, the wee bug was crying, and the wee bear started singing to her, and she just stopped. Mom and dad started bawling. Lots of love all around.

But you know what’s weird? How this one is less a new baby, and more a Baby Bear clone. Check out our current big kid’s newborn picture…

Baby Bear Hat Love

Although this kid is hard to capture on camera sans lobotomy face, once in a rare while, I get one of these. She does love her new hat.

Garden Veggies

Baby Bear has been loving all of the fresh produce out of the garden this summer. From the candy sweet cherry tomatoes to all of the fresh herbs (she was horrified by the pesto at dinner tonight until she tasted the fresh regular and lemon basil from the garden). Growing food is so cool.
