Greetings from Utah!!!
My little Logan is now 14 months old. In the past, when I thought about this time of the year, I thought I would be ready for the next little being. That has completely changed! As more and more of my friends are embarking on their next child, I am embarking on my own little journey of trying to keep up with my toddler and enjoying my life as it is. I know I want more, but really, I just started to sleep again. I didn't realize how much I LOVE sleep and how much it LOVES me. To think of starting all over again, just does not sound that much fun to me. I loved having a baby, but I love not having someone completely dependent on me.
So when does that "I want to have another one" hit? Honestly, as time is moving forward that thought is diminishing. I know I want a total of 3 or 4, but the thought of enduring through those first few months makes me shake my head. Even now, I am sitting here with my son and my 5 month old nephew and I keep repeating to myself that I couldn't do this. I guess I am one of those women who cannot have children close together but rather space them out a bit. And that is okay!!! I am me and not someone else. I know how I function and what I need to raise my children.
