That Familiar Tug On The Heartstrings ...

It's happened a few times over the last few months; that familiar tug on my heart strings. The kind that makes your heart jump. Perhaps it's because we are into a pretty good groove. Our schedule is just full enough, we have time for friends and family, and my business is thriving. This blog has taken a bit of a backseat and become review central (I know, I know, I apologize), but I like to think that this is giving me more room to live our days to the fullest.

We have adapted. Things look much different around here than they did just a short year ago. Our home is full of laughter and joy from the sweetest little boy, and we have already made so many memories here. Watching my husband become a father has been one of the greatest joys of my life thus far. He is a natural. So gifted and patient and a wonderful teacher.

It's when I reflect on all of these things that the thought of baby #2 keeps creeping into my head. It has to be all of the new babies that are arriving. Already, Pam?! I mean, we know we want more children, and would like them to be relatively close in age, but has 'that time' already come? For me it has. And even funnier, it's come for B, too.

Who knows what will actually happen over the next several months. But, our hearts are ready to start entertaining the idea of another child, and maybe our heads are starting to catch up.

So tell me, when did you know you were ready to start thinking about baby #2?

My daughter will be 2 in July and I have baby fever like crazy. There are things we would like to do first; get in shape, house renovations, and plamd for our business. Somedays I would love to ignore all that and just go for #2 right now though.

I stopped taking birth control before Chase was one. I was hoping to be pregnant by the time he turned one. I ended up not being able to get pregnant until he was completely weaned and then I miscarried so our kids ended up being 3 years apart and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Just started reading your blog :) I think when you know, you just know! Now I cannot give an opinion on the 2nd baby, because my hubs and I have one year old triplets, however, I do think that spouses need to be on the exact same page. Both need to feel like it's the right timing and of course pray about it. I have also told friends before to not feel like they need to keep up with "the Jones's" on the # of children and how far apart they are. Thanks for sharing your story!
