HAHAHAHA!!! I know right. No you are not having deja vu. Yes it is what you think it is. ANOTHER BABY TICKER! I guess this is my "official announcement." I am 14 weeks along now, due in May. We are quietly praying for a little girl to surprise us (and yes it will be a surprise) but we are quite sure its a boy, not cause I have crazy intuition or anything but come on do you really think this Yarn man can produce a girl very easy? Apparently not! We don't have ANY names but have all we need for either sex so we feel good about not finding out the sex this time. I am so excited to have them hold my baby over the blue tarp as they shout out the gender to me. I remember doing that with Trey and can't wait.
The shock has worn off by now (if your wondering), and yes my babies will be 15 months apart. I know alot of people think thats not too bad but they don't understand my point. Let me give you my point: K, I had my first 2 children 2 days short of one year. I loved it, it was like having twins. From day one I dressed them alike every chance I got. They have always been best buds and always did everything together, even to the point I have to make them seperate sometimes cause they don't realize they are seperate beings. Like I said I loved it and still do, BUT, and thats a BIG BUT, I have had 3 other kids since then whom I spaced out fine for that same reason. I like to enjoy my babies and not hurry and make them grow up like I did with my first. I didn't know any better at the time but looking back he did some things at 1 that most 3 year olds couldn't handle. I don't want to do that with Madden. He is my baby and most of all acts like my baby so how do I take that away. I must say he has changed to me in the last little bit, he has started to walk and he responds well to lots of things we say, he sleeps perfect, he is getting more independent in his play times, BUT, and yes, that's a BIG BUT, he is my baby! I want to keep him my baby.
I know we can do this all over again, I know we can cause Heavenly Father obviously has trust in us to do so. Talking to some of my friends lately I have realized even more now how grateful I am for a body that functions correctly. I have never had a problem getting pregnant (we've only "planned planned" 1 out of the 6 if that tells you anything). We love them all and they all came when they were suppose to but we have never sat down and discussed the "right time" to have a baby. Is there ever a "right time"? I don't think that's anything we have a say in, our right time is never the same as our Heavenly Fathers, that is for sure. So here's to the next 26 weeks, or should I say 25 cause I go in a week early due to c sections. Yes I should say 25 makes it sound quicker. :)
