Just a hefty dose of cute here, nothing more. It’s Friday. Let’s celebrate with a story of a boy and his dog.

It begins with a pause. A quick break between crawling around the couch and pulling up on the fireplace, which has been strategically baby proofed with the help of a quilt. Very high-tech….


But then he spies her. THAT DOG!


Must. Catch. Her. She has a tail. It’s fascinating. Must get to the tail.




Oh yes, the paws. The paws are so very interesting! Paws… just the sound of that… PAAAAWWWWSSSS…  they must taste lovely. I should try to taste them… after I try to taste her head.


Oh! Ears!


It’s cool, mom. Just going to grab me a fistful of dog hair here. She has plenty to spare.


Bless her sweet, 10 year old, labrador heart. 


I can’t get over the expressions this kid makes.




Whee! Standing! I’m standing! Don’t move.


OMG, I almost forgot. YOU HAVE A TAIL!



OH LOOK! A BALL! Be right back.



And if your heart can even handle anymore cute, I present to you Boy Chases Dog, THE GIF.

  1. I swear Jill, you and Scott make the cutest kids!! I love it when you post pics of Lowell! That last “expression” picture is the splitting image of Scott, haha. Your house is always exciting, I can tell.

  2. awww – so sweet. I love it. your dog looks so patient. our dog plays along too, but more reluctantly.

    in another post about organizing your son’s closet, you mentioned a loft bed that your husband built. we’ve been planning to do this at home for our sons (an almost 6 year old and a 9 month old- very similar in age to your boys), and need some inspiration to to get our butts in gear. thanks! even just a picture or 2- no instructions/ supply lists necessary, just pretty pictures (as all your photos are!)

  3. I love how one pic has the dog staring at you like “Seriously?! This is just gonna happen.” and then just accepts the fate. What a sweet, adorable boy and an amazingly patient dog. I took in a 12 year old Alaskan Malamute and my 5 year old adores her much like we do. She will lie on him to get his attention haha Dogs are amazing animals.

  4. This is an exact replay of our house. Our mutt Harry has been such a complete darling with the children. He just looks up with his big basset eyes all “really mama, you’re going to let them climb over me AGAIN?” but he loves them to pieces.

  • These two are #brothergoals ❤️❤️ Also? @kampgroundsofamerica jumping pillows are Playground #GOALS
  • Oh. Ok, handsome. 😍
  • There are so many fresh faces here, and I’m thrilled! My 15 month old is currently napping ON ME so I thought I’d use this as an opportunity to introduce myself and share more about Baby Rabies to you newcomers. 🤗 👋🏻 I’m Jill Krause, mom of 4 (nearly 10 year old son Kendall, 7 year old daughter Leyna, 4.5 year old son Lowell- we call him LoLo a lot, and 15 month old son Wallace). I’m married to Scott, my college sweetheart- MIZZOU 🐯 👶
Baby Rabies is what happens when your baby fever is incurable. And that’s what happened to me 11 years ago when I bought BabyRabies.com and decided to blog anonymously about my secret and sudden obsession with conceiving my first baby. 👬🤱 The logo is a play on a positive pregnancy test, but we love and embrace all kinds of families and caregivers around here, no matter how they came together. 💖
It is my greatest wish that this space is inclusive and supportive and uplifting, without feeling sanctimonious or void of humor. We don’t take ourselves too seriously. We are always open to improving ourselves, but perfection is never the goal. 🏞
I’m currently traveling the country in an RV with my husband and 4 kids. We sold our dream house last year to find our dream life. We are documenting that at @happy.loud.life So if you see pictures pop up and wonder why we spend so much time in an RV or why our baby has, like, 4 outfits, or why we seem to go on a ton of vacations- that’s why. 😆 ❓
Are you new here? I’d love if you’d introduce yourself below! ✨
  • I could hug whoever invented the puddle jumper floaties. Kids have no idea the torture we endured with blow up floatie wings back in the day. I can still smell the plastic and hear the awful noise they made when you had to take them off after you got wet.
  • Spring training for summer starts now. 🌞
  • Pic unrelated, but it's a cute baby and the thing I want to tell you about is super relevant if you're into babies! Tonight is the countdown to make sure you name is in for the over $3000 in awesomeness that one lucky someone is going to get! Follow the link in our bio before midnight tonight to see what's up! 🙌🏻❤️⬅️
  • "And some people say they can’t go biking because they have too many kids. I guess 4 is the limit...for now! 😀" How awesome is this snapshot from @cabinfeverbus?
  • We are doing some RV improvements and have a giant roll of this reflective stuff laying around. New fav photo back drop 😆 Also,  Lowell is such a big kid these days. 😓 #loloyolo #wallaceaustin
