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.


"trying"
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?

Wordless{ish} Wednesday: All Boy!

seriously last week my Husband insisted Maddux wear his Cubs hat...
This is after the fact that I had already dressed him in a Purdue shirt so he didn't match but he wasn't budging Maddux had to wear this hat.

I have to admit he looked pretty cute even though it's still a little big on him :)

wordless{ish} wednesday: Sophie

We are now proud owners of Sophie the Giraffe.

As soon as I saw that Babies R Us was selling them I knew Maddux just HAD to have it-- Thankfully my hubs wasn't with me he would have never let me spend that much on her.
(let me also say that he now loves her and questions where she is when we leave her at home or in the car etc.)

Maddux loves Sophie!


Head on over & Link up! :)
