Babies everywhere!

It's no secret that I want more kids.  If it is up to me I'd like one NOW but Logic tells me that I should wait a bit before having more.  The thing is- My kids are so amazingly awesome that I am just itching to have more. (Of course, they have their moments but all kids and mommies do!)

It's just like anytime I have gotten a new car.  I got a Subaru and saw Subarus everywhere. I got a CRV and suddenly everyone on the road is driving a CRV.  I had two kids and suddenly everyone, everywhere, is having adorable tiny new babies.  I am so incredibly  happy for all of my friends that are (or are about to be) new mommies and daddies.  It just makes me want more!

I just need to keep reminding myself to enjoy my two little boys.  I am finally at a place where BOTH boys are letting me sleep longer than 6 hours- Woohoo! Plus the 3+ years age difference has worked out so well for us.  Do I have the energy to withstand three kids? Potentially, three... boys?    It's someone else in my family's turn to have one. So someone-Mommy J? Cousins?  Someone local, please!  Hurry it up- I wanna hold a teeny tiny baby!

What is your ideal sibling spacing?

I have three children my self, ages 17, 12 and 10. I still as well would love to have another baby .. My friend in fact just had her 3rd two days ago..It's a beautiful thing! ;) But yes sleep is good and I do not have to worry about baby sitters.. My 17 year old can do it ( when and if I ever do go out )

Oh I have baby fever now! My little one is 15 months now so I think it's about time we start trying. 2.5-3 years is great spacing I think!

I know exactly how you happened to me so often that I ended up with quite a nest full of great kids!

I am following, hope you can stop by for a visit!

Thanks, Becky Jane
Raising kids can be a lot like weeding the rose bed...well worth it, but...OUCH!

I call that "blue car disease". Just like you said, you begin to see them everywhere! My husband and I are infertile and waiting for our adopted baby to come home so I know all too well this feeling. For a long time I used to say that babies were following me!

Oh my goodness I'm so baby crazy already and my daughter is only 8 months!! I find myself doing the math and thinking "Hmm... 17 months apart isn't THAT bad, right?? Haha!!
In reality, I think we'll try to wait until this August (around her first birthday) to start trying again. Anywhere in the ballpark of 2-3 years apart seems ideal. Until then, I'm constantly over at my friend's house who just has a baby a few weeks ago snuggling her newborn. Come to think of it, maybe that's where I caught the baby fever to begin with! :)

When you have your first child, it is so wonderful, new and exciting and its hard to imagine another. Each one is so different and bring so much to the family. When they are little they play and learn together and when they are older they are pals. They support each other and are never far away. I must have done something right because my kids want to be together when ever possible. Can you imagine they even share a blog together.
