Taking Matters Into My Own Hands: Giving Husband Baby Fever

Oh friends, baby fever has got a hold me good. I was (for some reason) hoping that this desire for another baby would start to slow down as life got crazier, I got busier and the conversation stayed the same.

It hasn’t. The ‘fever’ is still here, in full force and since my husband is not yet ‘infected’ with the fever I thought I would take the matter into my own hands.

We talk about this a lot and joke about it so I have been trying to find more creative ways of dropping more hints. A few weeks ago I let you into the secret of the baby socks — a valiant effort on my part that I will keep doing — but I needed something bigger. I think I might have found the answer!

I send him emails and texts of the cutest images that are BOUND to get somewhere with him.

Click through to see my current plan of action with the help of my kids:
