Baby No. 2?

pregnancy testLet me clarify, this blog is about hypothetical baby No. 2… I think. In the seven months since Austin was born, I have taken one pregnancy test. It was more of a “No way. I can’t be pregnant, but I better take this test to make sure so I can feel better about finishing this glass of wine.”

Kyle and I decided a few months ago that we want to have our kids close together. It just makes sense for us. But I’m now starting to wonder: How close is too close? I want my kids to be close in age, but I also don’t want to rush this time with Austin.

I like that I can plop him on my belly and play airplane with him. I like that we can go down slides and, when he kicks me in the stomach, it doesn’t matter. I like that my main focus is Austin. It stresses me out just thinking about being pregnant and having to focus on that, too.

I do agree that the best gift you can give your child is a sibling, I just can’t believe it has been only seven months and baby No. 2 is already on the brain. I can’t believe how fast it is going. I guess when the time is right to have another baby, we’ll know. I don’t think there will ever be a perfect time. I just want to soak in as much time with Austin while I can.

While it is just the three of us.
