Gah.

I believe that I am one of those women that will never, ever (ever, ever, never) get rid of baby fever.

Did I mention ever?

I absolutely love babies. They way they smell (ahem...that is, the way they smell with a FRESH diaper on), the way they sound, the way they feel, the way they look...ugh. It kills me. Which is why, my job is perfect...I get to snuggle babies fresh out of the chute! Well, not "snuggle", really, but hold.


And secretly, in my heart, I snuggle them. I'm pretty sure my patients would think I'm wackadoo crazy if I snuggled their baby and boldly sniffed their little heads, so I'm always all ninja about it..."Oh, you need my help with breastfeeding? Yes, let me take the baby while you get positioned..." and then I hold that baby close and get a tiny little baby fix.

Shhhhh...don't tell my secret. ;)

Lately, there are newborns EVERYWHERE...which really shouldn't be surprising since approximately 4 weeks ago there were pregnant mamas EVERYWHERE...but it still catches me a little off guard. Like when I see a mama in church, motion to her husband and suddenly, there is a newborn baby exchange between them and that wrinkly forehead is peering out from her mama's shoulder. Or, the daddy carrying a car seat into the grocery store and I quickly glance and there, snug as a bug, is a sleeping newborn.

Gracious. It takes all I have to not rush up to those parents and ask, "Can I please just sniff her head?".

I miss being pregnant. I miss nursing. I even miss the opportunity to go through labor and delivery.

Yes, I am certifiably crazy. I can't help it. 

Do you think there is some sort of 12 step program for my affliction?

  3. I never thought I'd be a baby person, but after getting pregnant (mine was a great one until the end - pre-e) and having a baby.. just love love love the snuggles. I love the expressions and quiet time and the SMILES!!

  4. Even as baby number 7 is coming any day I am already morning not being pregnant. I am already hoping it is a cute little 6 pound baby so he will look snuggly longer. I SOOOOOOOOOOO get it

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here: Halo Braid Tutorial! Let me know how it goes!
I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other day...my best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it.
Instead, I got this:

Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks!
Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay!
This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed braiding...watch the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby!
So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later!
Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story!
And this story...which, well...is the same story, just told two different ways! ;)
So, you can thank her...I guess.
Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!
You'll need this:
And, this:

You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. (Ahem...)
Just keepin' up with the times, friend.
So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips...
And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips...
