'Be prepared to fall madly in love' with TODAY's Babies of the Week

Their babies may be brand new, but these parents have some wisdom to share already. "Parenthood is a challenging but an incredibly rewarding experience. Be prepared to fall madly in love," say Alicia and Eric Schaupp, parents of Autumn Grace, born Dec. 5.

Parenthood is hard work, agrees Johnnikka Allison, who gave birth to Jayd Amor Raboteau on Dec. 7. She says, "Just know it's all going to be worth it. Just love your baby unconditionally."

Each week, Kathie Lee and Hoda select a few JOHNSON'S Babies of the Week to be featured on TODAY. And because your kids are just way too cute to stop there, we choose more little ones to grace our online gallery.

If you have had a baby in the past two months, click on the “add photos” link and enter your little doll’s mug (newborn to 8 weeks old) for consideration to be featured on a future show and online in an upcoming week. Click here to see advice on the kind of photos we're looking for in this contest.
