What are we thinking...?

Photo taken 6 days after Quincey was born
Some people might ask what the heck are you thinking? Well, I'll tell ya...

-We're thinking that since we are already in baby mode and haven't slept through the night in 4 years...
-We're thinking that since we've become extremely skilled parents & can hold both kids while balancing breakfast in one hand and filling up a sippy in the other hand
-Lots more hugs and kisses
-Collin mastered changing a diaper in 3 seconds flat
-We think it would be an adventure to be outnumbered--kids to parents
-More and more love in our home
-We're thinking that the moments of chaos like an entire box of Kix poured onto the floor are outweighed by tender parenting moments (notice I did not say outnumbered...)
-Since I'd forgotten all about morning sickness and wanted a 24/7 reminder
-We miss that baby smell, tiny baby toes & sweet baby moments
-That there's a little one up there ready to come down to us
- We feel so so so grateful to be able to have children

3 months along ♥ due in November ♥ expecting baby #3

Congrats! I thought something was up when you didn't deney those comments asking if you were prego or not! I have three, and that is where we decided to stop, I can say that I am officially over the desire to reproduce any more. But, there is nothing like having three kids. Two just seems sort of lonely to me now, and I wouldn't trade it for anything! Can't wait to see your cute little prego pics!
