Ooh, I bet you thought this was a pregnancy announcement, huh? Haha! Sorry. But I do really want to talk about this whole idea of a third baby. For so long Hank and I always said we wanted to have four children. In fact, I used to say I would love to have six! That was of course before I had two. And now that we have two, there have even been moments where I felt like maybe, possibly, we could be done right here. Those moments are pretty few and far between though (and usually on my hardest parenting days), because in my heart I feel like we are absolutely meant to have at least one more child and we definitely will. But four? I'm not sure...until I go and look at baby photos of Henry and Charlie (like the one of C, up there) and I'm back to wanting six little ones again and find myself daydreaming about a huge family.
Now that Charlie is rounding the corner to 1.5, life is getting easier. He's walking, he's talking, and we're able to do a whole lot more. I love this age. And as much as I do miss those teeny tiny baby days, I think I actually like this age and all of its stages even more.
When I think back to so many discussions Hank and I would have about planning out our family, we always thought we would try to get pregnant when Charlie was one. When that time came around we decided to wait, and now that winter is here we're talking about maybe waiting a little longer. You never know what the future holds- what if I can't get pregnant again? What if I get pregnant this month? Some things just happen, so when I say "plan" I use that term very loosely.
So I ask you, how many kids do you have? How many do you want to have? And if you are a parent of multiple children, what is the age gap between them? Do tell!
