|(See? Total cutie. I snagged this adorable picture from her mama's Facebook.)|
We told her that she could pick out a book and we would buy it for her; her eyes lit up, and she began flittering from table to table, trying to make a decision. Finally, she brought us her choice (a book about a puppy’s first Christmas—girl after my own heart! Can I put my tree up yet?). We browsed a bit longer, and I caught her looking at a book from the “grown-up” table. It was a cookbook….a Disney princess cookbook (yeah, that totally exists). So I wandered over and crouched down beside her.
“What did you find, Brylee?”
*shrug & smile*
“Ohh, it’s a cookbook. Do you think I should buy that so I can make all the princess food?”
She looked up and me and grinned. “Yeah.”
“Okay, but if I get it, I’m going to need some help to make all this stuff. I don’t think I can do it all by myself. Will you come over and help me make it?”
*Big smile* “Mmhmm!”
Needless to say, I walked away with a a Disney princess cookbook and a promise to make sea turtle cupcakes…..and also maybe a little bit of baby fever. I admit it. (Of course, I only make my own confessions, and would never tell you that I kept catching Tyler looking at me extra lovingly and how he told me more than a few times that I was "going to be such an amazing mom." I would never tell on him like that.)
While baby fever is alive and well in the Lafferty household, it will most certainly be a year or two until we start making serious plans for that kind of thing. Obviously that doesn't mean that I don't already have a Pinterest board full of baby-things (clothes, nursery ideas, costumes....you name it), but I like to think that it keeps me tided over until we take the plunge. I thought I'd share a few of my faves--whether you're also in the clutches of baby fever or not, at the very least, they're pretty darn cute.
