Baby Number Two?

That's the Big question.

We are asked this at least once or twice a week.
When is number 2 coming??

The best part of getting this question is seeing people's reactions (or hearing it thru emails)

We want to start trying in December.
Yes, this December.
Fall 2012 Baby.

that's the key word.
Also, the same word that makes me cringe.

I don't want to have to "try" to have a baby I just want to have a baby.
as most of you know Maddux was just kind of a wow. surprise kind-a-deal.
so... it makes me very nervous to have to try to make a baby because I don't want to have to deal with any kind pressure, stress or dissappoint--if it doesn't happen right away. 

Also, 95% of the people that we tell this to tell us we are crazy & instantly start telling us how "hard" things are going to be. 
Yes, this I know.

Sleep... I'll miss it.
Money... if I wait for money I'll never have another child.
Me time... Thank God for AMAZING grandparents.
3 Bedroom-Small House... We will move--someday... We have room for 2 kids--just not 3 here.
Friends... Ha. I don't see them now 2 kids won't matter.
My Relationship with My Husband... stronger than ever kids won't change that--not for the worse at least.

So... I know we are crazy, I know this will be a challenge...
2 under 2.
Big Deal.
We Got This.

Now to convince my mommy friends to try for some more! :) :)
What do you girls say?


  1. Yay! I'm excited for you! I love the part about money! It is so true!

  2. In the same boat.

    Why wait? :-) Money....will never have enough.

  3. I have baby envy!

    I cannot wait to have children in a few years after my boyfriend and I get married.

    We feel the same way you do about children. We want them close in age and we don't care if we're broke, but the extended family cares.

    I am anxious to follow your blog to keep up with your growing family!


  4. I'm currently NTNP!! :) Maybe we'll be preggers at the same time! :)

  5. wahoo... good idea, two kids are the best :)

  6. Not a big deal at all! I just had number 2 and I get more sleep now than I did while pregnant at least lol, so it feels like a treat!

    Good luck to ya! I hope you don't have to "try" hard ;)

  7. That's exactly when my husband and I plan on trying again, lol.
