There are factors to consider. Upcoming [international] trips. A big project/secret that we're working on like crazy. And then there's the fact that I'm not sure I'm ready to stop nursing my 13-month-old yet. I know I could keep nursing through pregnancy (and beyond), but...if the past is any indication, I'll probably be throwing up and losing weight for the ENTIRE first trimester. Not exactly ideal conditions for breastfeeding.
So we wait (a little longer - but not too much longer...).
We do KNOW, however, that we want to have another. From deep down in our hearts. For so many reasons.
Lately, we've been spending time with bigger families and it confirms our desire. We can't help but sense their happiness, their fulfillment. It seems nice to have so much noise in a house - so much laughter, so much love.
If it's already THIS good, it can only get better...
WHAT ABOUT YOU? How did you decide how many kids to have? How did you decide the spacing between your kids?
