    Sleeping in is a really good cure for it! As is a day spent curled up on the couch with a good book/a season of a good show on Netflix/a movie marathon. lol I kick the dog out of the room too – I’m pretty sure a baby wouldn’t give up so easily, lol.

    Those waffles look great!

    You don’t have to worry about having spit-up on your clothes all the time! I’ve seen cute baby bibs that say “Spit Happens” and that always makes me go awwww!

    The best way that I cure baby fever is knowing that I want to travel and that doing that with a newborn or even a toddler would not be fun. Also, race goals always helps me too.

    Go visit either of your two new babies around the 6 week mark. That will cure you of your fever!

    Hahaha! That’ll do it. Although I could give you a whole list of things to bring baby fever back too. πŸ˜‰

    I’ve been doing the same thing: trying to cure my baby fever. I think about all of the traveling I hope to do and honestly that does it for me!

    Appreciate the time you get to have all to yourself! Stop and listen to the silence. There’s not usually a lot of silence when babies are around, haha! Plus baby throw up is not a problem.

    hahaha! Your post is too funny and oh so true! I’m not allowed to have baby fever just yet, but when I do I need to remember all that will be sacrificed. Isn’t sleeping in the best?

    Haha I’m sure that Derek is glad your baby fever is over FOR NOW!

    Definitely staying up until 3AM with friends isn’t possible when there’s a baby at home πŸ˜‰

    Hahaha this is great. I totally need a fix for my baby fever too…although I have about five more years longer to wait than you, so I should probably stop thinking about babies all together. I always remind myself of how disgusting a diaper looks and smells. Usually quells the baby urge for a bit.

    The best part of these new babies in yours and Derek’s lives is you can give them back once they start to get fussy! It’s the best of both worlds πŸ™‚

    All you have to do is work at a preschool for four months – that will permanently end any and all baby urges you might ever have!

    I have four kids whom I love dearly. I am so glad diaper days are over. You said you wanted them two years apart, well there is five years between the first two, my oldest a girl potty trained easy, my second a boy when he turned two he just wasnt ready like the girls was so I waited. I then I found out I was PG with two more and I didnt get the first boy trained until after they were born. The twins didnt get trained at the same time either (one was ready the other, not so much). so I was changing diapers for seven years strait, however I’m still not dione whiping behinds 9 years later. Sorry if I scared anybody, but poop happens πŸ˜‰

    Water parks help cure my baby fever. This week at Typhoon Lagoon there were a bunch of British kids running around, and they areso cute when they behave, but a British accent screaming “but dad-dey, mummey said i could stay here!!!” put me over the top – had to go home shortly afterwards…

    Babies definitely can give baby fever. They’re so cute and perfect. Even when they cry, they’re cute! Now hang out with a bunch of hyper 2 to 3 year olds…fever cured!

    Babysit for a stubborn 2 year old and a very active 10 month old month old who are both still in diapers! Or, for me, just hearing about all the gross and painful things that happen during pregnancy and delivery definitely cures the baby fever for at least a few months!

    My cure for baby fever is the fact that I’ll have to get over being a perfectionist. Sure I can have visions of children who eat whatever wholesome foods I provide and turn their noses up at Grandpa’s Lucky Charms… But my guess is that’s just one of 10,000 things that won’t go as I’d planned. I don’t think I’m ready for that yet. I don’t want to be a helicopter parent.

    I am giddy over my son turning 1 and my daughter turning 3 in August but I still don’t get to sleep through the night so sleep is the best cure for baby fever, I agree! Enjoy being a couple, travel somewhere like Australia, and give yourself time to get your business off the ground. You are still young! Congrats on Derek’s niece, I am always happy to hear of babies arriving safely!

    If baby fever ever strikes again, I will gladly record the morning I had with my kids and send it to you (yet, the despite that I still want a 3rd – I’m pretty sure I’m certifiable).

    I think most jealous of your sleeping in!

    Oh I could go on forever on adding to that list. Here’s a couple:
    -have a nice cold beer (or glass of wine) and remember you can’t do that for 9 months or longer if breast feeding with a kid
    -run a super quick errand in 10 mins. That would’ve taken about 30 to just get out the door with a baby in tow.

    No baby fever for me! πŸ˜‰

    Never being able to go to a sit down restaurant from when your child is about 18 months to 4 years old, because they cannot wait to get their food and are too curious about the restaurant and need to walk around.

    I’ll never forget on a family reunion, we always would pick one night to get an expensive meal. I ordered the lobster and steak combo – even back when Hannah was 2 1/2, (17 years ago) my dinner cost $25, which was a lot of money for me then.

    She was great right up to when our food arrived, and she would not sit still at all. I ended up walking with her up and down the peer, thinking I’ll just have to have my leftovers the next day.

    The next day, I am looking in my Aunt’s fridge and I was like “where are my leftovers?” She said – “oh, I thought the doggie bag was for the dogs so I gave it to them already.” Yep, $25 spent on two bites of steak!

    It’s weird though, I am about to have my 25th reunion, and the guy who had his locker next to me is just having is second child – I can’t imagine being a parent of a new born at 43!

    My kids are the most wonderful, amazing things that have ever happened to me, but if you want to cure baby fever, just spend a little time with a brand new mom. Leaking breasts, bleeding, blood clots, soaking your stiches if you have them, hemrroids (thankfully only had with one) and walking around without realizing you have spit up down your back. As my sister-in-law likes to joke “It is not a sexy time”.

    It’s okay to have baby fever every now and then. It’s healthy! It shows you that you want that in your future, at some point πŸ™‚ Until then get pointers from your friends and family with babies and TRAVEL.
    Travel as much as you can πŸ™‚ You can do everything else with a baby but traveling is HARD. And expensive πŸ™‚ Love your blog xxoo
