Before M and I got married we talked about how many kids we wanted to have. We decided that we wanted to have four. We thought that this would be the perfect number of children to raise. After we got married and seeing how amazingly...(insert whatever word you want here) M's niece was I decided that I only wanted to have one child. M told me that this wouldn't be a wise decision. As hard as we would try, they might turn out to be spoiled and that was far from what I wanted. After we had our daughter we sat down and had the baby discussion again. We both decided that we were going to have two children and that was it. Pregnancies are really difficult for M(to say the least) and she told me she would be able to do it one more time and that was all. Also, we decided that our lifestyle wouldn't be conducive enough to bring more than two children into the world. We also agreed that two would be the perfect number to have.
We decided that we wanted to have them closer together than farther apart(for a lot of reasons). If you want to know what they are...ask. Shortly after Thanksgiving we discovered that we were having our second child. We decided though, that we weren't going to tell anyone. This was due to the fact that M was having a lot of complications and we didn't want to involve anyone in them until we were sure that they were gone. We also didn't want to tell anyone until we found out the gender of the baby. The reason behind this was because we realized when we were pregnant with Paige that people were more thrilled when they knew what the gender of the baby was than they were knowing that we were just pregnant.
M, P, and I are proud to announce that we will be welcoming the final member of our family in July. Currently, HE is 24 weeks a long and starting to kick up a storm. We think we might have found the perfect name for him but are still keeping open minds in case things change.
