It may be too soon, but you don't care.

10 Signs You've Got Baby Fever

That moment when you find yourself watching the cutest baby doing something totally normal, you need to immediately check yourself for baby fever. Here are some major signs that you may have baby fever.

1. Dog vs. Baby

A dog and a baby are in the same room, but you're completely in awe of the baby while the dog does something equally cute. You might have baby fever.

2. Baby Clothes

You often wander into the baby clothes section "just because", and you may or may not have considered buying baby clothes and hoarding them until the time comes.

3. Take Your Child To Work Day

Also known as the day you pay not attention to the lesson, but instead stare at his/her cute toddler while the professor teaches.

4. Babysitting [rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F07%2F63603509459875859474848601_Babysitting.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=50&h=66f0db32d5cf70c831d8a5f25288763255d058391ff6357d90f74628f4780436&size=980x&c=957687739 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F07%252F63603509459875859474848601_Babysitting.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D50%26h%3D66f0db32d5cf70c831d8a5f25288763255d058391ff6357d90f74628f4780436%26size%3D980x%26c%3D957687739%22%7D" expand=1]

You love babysitting because it's total mommy (or daddy!) practice.

5. Baby Voice

You've perfected your baby voice -- the one you use when 'talking" to infants. You know the one--don't pretend like you don't.

6. Baby Names [rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F07%2F6360350984331381311363474656_baby%2520names.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=718&h=779d1ca3c3a0f3015a9dcfc93c7515698278e695bda02eaed7474a41b3ecdde7&size=980x&c=1602030384 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F07%252F6360350984331381311363474656_baby%252520names.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D718%26h%3D779d1ca3c3a0f3015a9dcfc93c7515698278e695bda02eaed7474a41b3ecdde7%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1602030384%22%7D" expand=1]

You've already got the names picked out. In fact, you have several names picked out and will narrow down the list when the time comes.

7. Vicariously Living Through Someone Expecting [rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F07%2F636035100672549398-1117073149_fb.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=1001&h=4eb55d1e0ff5ed93438fba07e58650e3ee409f6e12f20c90ec70c75e21c7a485&size=980x&c=3244500783 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F07%252F636035100672549398-1117073149_fb.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D1001%26h%3D4eb55d1e0ff5ed93438fba07e58650e3ee409f6e12f20c90ec70c75e21c7a485%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3244500783%22%7D" expand=1]

When someone you know is expecting, you are with them the whole way through...on Facebook...by stalking every picture they post.

8. Like Mother, Like Baby

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F07%2F636035103021916988338887025_my%2520baby.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=335&h=ca313b9767528506d258fc6365ca890f2aacedb9564d44bc15a55b4038fde292&size=980x&c=1432712383 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F07%252F636035103021916988338887025_my%252520baby.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D335%26h%3Dca313b9767528506d258fc6365ca890f2aacedb9564d44bc15a55b4038fde292%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1432712383%22%7D" expand=1]

You see a baby that kinda looks like you, you start to wonder what your child is going to look like.

9. Mother's Instinct

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F07%2F636035104993676541-403424047_i_can_help_you.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=771&h=227f123dbfe85c04c5b44d4cf6840f21c9e4fa8c6ce67c361b19cb6bd914cd3a&size=980x&c=3693147246 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F07%252F636035104993676541-403424047_i_can_help_you.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D771%26h%3D227f123dbfe85c04c5b44d4cf6840f21c9e4fa8c6ce67c361b19cb6bd914cd3a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3693147246%22%7D" expand=1]

While other people hand a baby back because it needs to be changed or cries, you embrace it and try to help.

10. Buying Adult Versions Of Children's' Items

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F07%2F636035117114882228827244174_adult%2520baby.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=53&h=8d36f2c9f5324abcc32b2d584b7ab85e75d17aeb6c6f3091b0458a02948f7d3d&size=980x&c=722134154 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F07%252F636035117114882228827244174_adult%252520baby.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D53%26h%3D8d36f2c9f5324abcc32b2d584b7ab85e75d17aeb6c6f3091b0458a02948f7d3d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D722134154%22%7D" expand=1]

You start buying yourself baby things in grown-up version like adult onesies and sippy cups because they remind you of babies.

If you have these symptoms, you've caught the fever!

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
