Questions Answered

I've had several questions that we've been getting a lot of from both our real life friends and family as well as my loyal blog followers.  So, I thought I'd answer a couple of them.

1.) We are about 90% certain that we are going Team Green again.  It just feels right for us.  I'm not one for surprises in any other circumstance and I go crazy waiting to know what my friends are having.  But, I LOVED Paisley being a mystery and the absolute breath-taking moment when they announced that she was a GIRL.  I am also 100% happy with either another little girl or a boy.  Honestly.  Plus, not knowing makes our family crazy and that's just kinda funny.

2.)  We didn't exactly TRY for this baby but we certainly weren't trying to avoid having another one.  I never went back on birth control after Paisley and hoped that this would happen, but really didn't expect it.  While nursing, I had no periods and then they were erratic.  The last one before I got pregnant was the first normal one.  I had made an appointment to see our infertility doc again but that was when Aaron was hospitalized so we didn't exactly make it.  And then I was too afraid to reschedule because I just knew that he would tell me that I was no longer fertile.

3.)  We are finished after this little one.  For sure.  I really only knew that I wanted one baby, but I feel like I can definitely manage 2.  Three kids makes me feel ill and panicky.  I give so much credit to the mamas who raise 3+ kiddos.  It takes a strong woman. 

Anyways, I'm off to wrestle my little night owl down for the evening.  Still not quite sure how you take care of two kids.  :)


  1. You'll do great with two!!!!!!
    but i am with you, 3 is terrifying!!!

  2. Yeah, outnumbered by three :) But of course still a blessing. Love the new ticker :) Ohhh man, I have to wait for names and gender?? Fineeeeee :) hahahaha

  3. I thought we discussed you finding out this time? Don't you know you have to listen to what I say? haha totally kidding. If I had it in me I would love to be able to wait to find out. But I would be the one peeking at the ultrasound when they said to turn away. You will do great with a 2nd. It's one of those things at the end of every day you don't know how you did it, but you just did. You'll rock!

  4. I dunno you sure you don't want 7 kids? :) You never know what you can handle til you try. haha.

  5. Congratuations!! I had not checked in with your blog in a while, so happy for you and Aaron!!

  6. lol, I agree with you about the 3 kids. As much as I can't fathom not having another little baby, I also can't imagine trying to have 3. Let me just tell you - having a second does not just double the increases exponentially. It's insane. Of course, mine were REALLY close together so my experience is a little crazier than most. And yay for a surprise! I couldn't do it - I think because I knew I wanted a girl with Addy SO bad and if I was going to have a boy, I wanted time to really get used to the idea and let go of my dream of a girl. And if it was a girl, I wanted to know because...yippee! lol!
