Adding to the Mix

The Husband and I have been talking lately. Discussing. Wondering. Dare we add another child to the mix? Should we become a family of four? It's an exciting/scary/crazy subject. We both agreed that we want another one, but is it too soon? Marshall just turned one, but he's still not sleeping through the night (fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck!!!!). Maybe he will be by the time the new one comes along (although some guy at my husbands work told him that his child did not sleep through the night until he was three...............I'm really glad I got that piece of information). 

As we sat and chit chatted about the pros/cons of having another one, I mentally compiled a list.  (side note: I love lists......no seriously, I'm fucking in love with them. Lists and my iPhone calender are the only way I stay organized). So here it is.....

The Do we or Don't we have Another one right now List

Marshall would have a "close in age" sibling, but......

 ................Depending if I got prego right away, I would have two in diapers. That's double duty on those nasty ass diaper changes. I just threw up in my mouth thinking about it.

I kinda liked being pregnant.  Husband waited on me hand and foot, I ate whatever the fuck I wanted, and I really did have a nice "pregnancy glow". I also had the best sex of my life during the second trimester. But..........

.......... I also kinda hated being pregnant. I puked my guts out for the first three months, was an emotional clingy sweaty mess. By the third trimester Marshall  was sitting so low in my uterus that he practically obliterated my pelvic floor. I also resembled a little beached whale with tits. Now that's sexy.

I'm not getting an younger......but I'm also only 31 (or 29 for the third time, you know, whatever)

When I was breastfeeding, my tits looked fantastic......

.......but the aftermath was down right frightening (I fucking hate you gravity, your an evil, evil bitch)

I'm just staring to feel like myself again.....my clothes are fitting me better, I'm starting to go out a bit more, even thinking about going back to work.........

.........but I do love that first year.  It is truly amazing to watch a little person grow up in front of your eyes.


Decisions, Decisions.  Whether it be now, or down the road, God willing, I do want to give Marshall a sibling.  Guess we will have to wait and see..............

......but dam (biased opinion maybe?) I did make the cutest baby ever!!
