On the brain

I can't believe I am even thinking this, but I think it's a woman's inner voice. I have been thinking a lot about an addition to our family. Not immediately, but as I look at the ages of our children, if I wait too much longer, there will be a huge age gap and then I would forced to have 2 more. Brenton would love more children, I think. He loves kids! I on the other hand think about the sleepless nights, sicknesses, weight-gain, then work to lose the weight, and all the other things that play into this. It's a greater investment for me physically than him, as I am sure all females agree.
If I could guarantee that I would have another girl, I would for sure do it, but I might end up with 3 boys and one girl (not that boys are bad, I love boys, but for space purposes 2 and 2 would be ideal). It's strange for me to even think this through since all of our children were surprise blessings from above! (I can say that now :)). We've never planned anything, especially having kids.
It seems crazy to think of starting all over- we are planning on getting the little guy out of diapers this summer- it will be the first time with no diapers in our life for the past 6 years$$$. WEIRD!

Nothing is for sure, but I can't stop thinking about it. I am sure my family will call me nuts, they already think my life is too chaotic and unorganized, but one last little Balvin sure would be cute!


  1. You two are great parents and if you decide to have another little Balvin cutie they would be lucky to have you both. From what I hear the chaos from 3 to 4 is not much different so why not :) There is a book out there on tricks to get the gender you want if you aren't opposed to that kind of 'interfereing'. How fun :) Shannon

  2. Stephanie! I had a dream a couple months back you were pregnant. Plus, in about 7 months, I could be the nanny! :)

  3. I still get the "itch" sometimes too... I think it's a good thing for me that I don't have all the parts anymore! :)
