Baby Number 2
People think it is simple, but for some, even contemplating having a second baby can be overwhelming. You see, hubby and I have been thinking about extending our little nest of three. We both come from large families and always wanted more then one child and seeing that our Dilemma is 18 months and that we had trouble conceiving her without fertility assistance in the first place has heightened our need to get this started. But having a child about to enter her terrible twos and being a stay at home mom with only one income to support us all makes us worry: are we ready for this? And this has put a damper on what should be a joyous decision.
Once our Dilemma was born, she was the center of our world. Like all new parents, everything we did revolved around not screwing her up. We have now settled into a nice routine. She sleeps thought the night, eats well and, is beginning to take to her potty training. We have even reached the point where hubby and I have time for each others’ company again! And I even have time to re-immerse myself into things I love (like blogging for instance!).
We know that a newborn will take over our lives again. That we will not sleep and the whole dynamic of our family will change. We will need to find the time and energy to deal with a toddler AND an infant… Are we crazy?
All and all we can mull over the pluses and minuses of having another baby, make all the lists, check all the back accounts, articles and such on the subject and STILL not come to a solid answer. So we are listening to our hearts. Baby Number two…we welcome you!
Now let’s get started on making a baby!
