Can you believe



This little rock star is almost 1? It seems like just overnight he added a ton of skills. He can stand, say bye-bye, ball, dada, mamma, and duck. (I am desperately hoping that is what he is saying - we all know about my husband's potty mouth)
He loves to eat, but still prefer his baby food. He will longingly gaze at you while you eat, however if you offer him anything he puts it in your mouth after he tastes it. YUM! Still no teeth - but I can see the bottom two getting ready to poke through any day now. He is such a giggly baby, and that makes the sleepless nights easier. Yes, our sweet Monkey has yet to spend an entire night in his crib.
He is such a treasure, and combined with delicate flower, I am really starting to question having another baby. I really thought I did, but then when I think about going through another baby year I become apprehensive. I also know we can provide for two children well, three would slim the opportunities we could offer.
If you have more than one child, what was the deciding point? If you have more than two, do you ever feel stretched (emotionally and financially)
I would be eager to hear what you have to say. Now I have a birthday party to plan!

With our three I don't feel stretched emotionally. But financially is another story, especially as they get older.

It's something I think about every day. I think we're done. (2 little ones and my step-daughter who is 13). Not an easy decision - I keep waiting for a "sign".

We didnt decide to have a second baby (although we knew we wanted a few kids) I got pregnant 6 weeks after having Lizzie. SO that decision was made for us, but I did decide I was ready to have a baby when we got pregnant with Gage. And I felt pretty good about it. Max was a happy accident, I was done at 3, but Im so glad we have him!! Anyway, I often feel over stretched in all areas. Of course 2 of our kids have some special issues, but of course no matter what, more kids equals more time, more patience, more money.

But it can be fun too.
Just dont read my blog anymore so you can continue to think it might be fun lol!
