Isla is 10 months old now, and I’ve got to say, I haven’t experienced what you would call “baby fever” yet. But what I have been feeling for the last month or so now is what I am calling “family fever”, meaning that I don’t necessarily want to go through having more babies so much as I am just so excited to have all my kids here with me (however many that may be) so that we can all be a complete family and my kids can begin growing up together. Planning for vacations would be easier for sure. Knowing how we will fit all our kids in our 3 bedroom home would also be nice—especially if we have more than 2-3 kids! Sometimes I think one more baby would be perfect. 2 kids. My husband and I wouldn’t be outnumbered, and they would have each other as best friends. Then I have days where I think I could handle 3, maybe 4, or more kids! What makes me think I can realistically handle this-I have no idea. All I know is I love my family. My baby that I have already, as well as my unborn children. My husband and I are having conversations about adoption as well and when that would take place down the road. With all these unknowns floating around in my head, I just have to pray that God captures my thoughts and helps me to enjoy today that I have with my Isla girl.
She most likely won’t be an only child forever, so why not spend as much time with her as I can! I know that I have family fever like crazy right now, but to wish away time is definitely not the answer. How do you guys deal with “baby” or “family” fever? I’d love to know your thoughts!
