Baby Fever!

Whew, this week was a doozy! Time already flies, so I cannot imagine how fast it will fly by with a precious baby. Speaking of, we are going on 20 weeks. Half way there! Our little one is probably about 8.5 ounces and between 6 to 6.5 inches long. He or she is growing hair and can probably hear my voice now. Amazing, isn't it? I've been talking and singing away to the little one. Luckily he or she hasn't heard any other good vocals to compare mine too. ;) I feel like a little kid on Christmas, giddy with excitement and anticipation. I still have to stop and take a moment to let it soak in. That I am blessed with such an amazing husband, and we are having a sweet baby. A little person with a heart, mind, and soul to raise and nurture and love forever. Overwhelming in the best possible way!

We have started planning the nursery scheme and registering for baby gear. As far as the material things go, I am most excited about books. I think we read and scanned nearly 20 books in Target alone. And now I understand why adults used to tear up while reading Love You Forever. I choked up in the book aisle reading it as a grown-up! We want our little one to read the same books we adored and learned from, but he or she will choose their own favorites over time. I wonder what they'll be!

Here are a few of our favorites. And I mean few because I could go on all day about children's books!

Any Dr. Seuss, Eric Carle, or Golden Book is a great one!

What were your favorites?


  1. My favorite book of all time is The Giving Tree. It makes me cry and feel so happy at the same time!

  2. That is such a great one! A must have for both of our babies' libraries! :)

  3. Love You Forever was one of my favorites! Other favorites were: The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear and Bedtime for Frances. :) Glad to have found you through the Pennyweight blog!

  4. Thank you for your suggestions and reading! We will definitely check out the other titles you recommended! :)
