What Kind Of Baby?

Seamus' birthmom Alexa is due to give birth to a baby girl next month. She is in a committed relationship with her boyfriend of 4 years and they plan to raise the baby together.

Our kids know about the soon-to-arrive half sister of Seamus. Seamus and I have talked many times and he loves to ask questions about that baby in Miss Alexa's tummy.

Seamus: "Mama, what kind of baby is in Miss Alexa's tummy?"

Me: "A girl."

Seamus: "No, what KIND of baby?"

Me: "A GIRL."

Seamus: "NO. What KIND of baby?"

Me: "A werewolf."

Seamus: *eye roll* "No, Mama, what KIND of baby?"

Me: "A vampire?"

Seamus: *sigh* "No Mama, will the baby be chocolate like Marlie? vanilla like Haven? or peanut butter like me?"

Me: "Oooooo... I guess the baby will be peanut butter like you."

Seamus: "YAY!!!!!!!! The baby will be peanut butter like me!!!!"


  1. Love the way he sees this! Very refreshing! Yay for peanut butter!

  2. Chocolate, Vanilla, or Peanut butter, Makes sense since your kids are YUMMY!

  3. That is so sweet. He's such a cutie! And Peanut Butter? Adorable. Give him a kiss for me and tell him PB is my fav flavor. ;)

  4. does seamus know he is hispanic?

  5. Ha! love that. Our kids asked if our new baby would cry in spanish. I told them crying is kind of like love, it is a universally understood language. lol

  6. He always make me giggle, that boy. I am sure we will be fast friends. I loves me some pirates, arrrr!

  7. Oh I love kids and their perceptions. It's so perfect. And best of luck to Alexa!

  9. Oh my gosh, PB is a new one to me! I've heard the chocolate and vanilla comparisons kids make though- so adorable! Hope everything goes well with Alexa's delivery!
