Hit me Baby one more time

So when do you know that you’re ready to have baby number 2?

Or if you want to have baby number 2?

Because it was entirely conceivable that it would be impossible for us to conceive again. We hit the jackpot once; maybe we were meant to be a family of three. Our boy was our wonder; a beautiful, loving little character, who had us enthralled from the moment he was born. Shouldn't we have been so happy to be so blessed?



But still, the desire for another child gnawed. At me.

So when?

Is it when you realize that your biological clock is ticking on over drive?

Is it when you see this ...


And he shares this with you...


And he cracks you up with this...


that you realize that your baby is growing up quickly in front of your very eyes…


so quickly that you want to get that "baby feeling" back?

I took a deep breath and wondered if we could indeed do it again. Only now it was a couple years later, I was a couple years older. And perhaps not so much wiser.

I love rollercoasters, I really do, but this was flippin’ ridiculous.

Oh boy, here we go again ...

We had some moments of 'it's time', but sadly, the time was never right. Now I get that baby feeling with other people's babies. Which is good, but not as good as your own.

Ah how I desperately want a second baby... alas it doesn't seem to be happening for me.

Can't wait to read the rest of your story... you know, now that I have the background.

Trying to have a second was where we ran into infertility problems. It was so difficult but at least it made me more empathetic.

I'm looking forward to hearing G girl's story!

We're there right now. Our kid is like a regular kid. No longer a baby. Ok ok, I need blog fodder!! ;)

Ok, I couldn't hold out for those few days so I had to sneak a peak.

I think, right now, having been through whatever so far, that we wouldn't know when to stop, if we could get started.

Looking forward to this.

Oh he is sooo beautiful! Of course you wanted number 2, eventually. I wasn't ready until number one was 4, then it hit me hard.

C said...

Ahhhhhhh! So cute!!! We're still waiting on baby #1, who is due in 6 months! Hubby's already talking about #2! GAH!

BeachMama said...

I still get that feeling for more. I know it well.
