Big Brother

You knew this was coming...

I knew this was coming...

But, even I didn't anticipate just how soon...

We want another baby!

Let me explain. I have always wanted a big family. Tom knew it from day 1. Back when I was trying to get pregnant, I never pleaded for God to give me one child. I asked for one..for the time being. Trevor came and life has been simply amazing ever since.

Originally, we expected to meet with our RE in June and attempt a FET in August. Just a few days after Trevor came into our life, that plan was out the window. We couldn't believe how full our hearts felt and don't see the point in waiting.

If I remember correct, I was sitting in the hospital bed, in excruciating pain, bleeding, wearing an ice diaper and I looked at Tom and said, I'm ready for the next one. He looked at me and told me I was crazy.

Fast forward about 2 two weeks when the three of us were driving in the car and I said to Tom, "So, is it safe to say we will start trying as soon as we can?" He happily said yes.

That brings us to the present.

You see, Trevor is the reason we want another child so soon. He is the precious gift we are thankful for every day. His smiles light up the room. He is the one we want to make a big brother. He is the best thing that ever happened to us. He is the reason were praying God has another miracle in store for us.



So, it's really all his fault..

lol, blaming it on Trevor is too funny! I hope he gets to be a big brother to ''Hadley!''

Melinda said...

I hope you get that big family you want...and soon!! Love Trevor's big beautiful eyes!!

Ashley said...

Aww well good luck! We are just starting out on IVF. It's nice to read your story and see the cute little bundle you had.:)

Angelwingsbaby said...

Too funny we have already been discussing when to try again too lol.I think the IF has a lot to do with the urgency we feel besides the fact that we love our little guy so much.

Kelsey said...

I think it's so cute that Trevor is the reason! But it's a good reason! Hopefully you'll make him a big brother! Having a big brother to watch over "hadley!"

Kelly said...

Gorgeous picture! Kids are a huge blessing and can fill up everyone's heart. I can't even say I am done at 3... I love kids! I hope you get another miracle!

Mush said...

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you! It's never too soon! xxx

Jessica said...

I really hope that you are able to get pregnant again as soon as possible! I know you're going to be amazing parents to Trevor and his future siblings. Who wouldn't want more like him?!

Blessed said...

So normal! Faith is 4 months and were already planning out #2...when and how and everything because she fills are hearts so much!!!! I get it girl :)

Joy said...

I've had the same feelings myself but I'm making us wait. I really need to get into shape first since I've been in the 170's-190's since getting pregnant with my oldest. I really want to get back to the 130's before having our next baby.

I cannot wait to follow yet another baby journey with you! I hope things happen quickly!

Samantha said...

It's lovely to read how your story all came together :)
Blaming it on Trevor is too sweet!

PS. I love his little jumper suit, I can just see my little nephew in one of those.

Amber said...

Could Trevor be any cuter? Good luck with your little family :)

The Ashes said...

And, you need a little Hadley!

paige said...

Your baby is so cute - such a little "manly" baby :) i totally get where you're coming from... likely why i'm expecting my 7th... big families are fun.

erin said...

How adorable is he?!? He WILL be a wonderful big brother.

kim_brough said...

I think you are absolutely insane, but good luck!

Fiamma said...

Praying...
can't wait to see your next beautiful baby... you sure make beautiful ones!!!!

jenn said...

love this post!
love the pics! that huge grin...how could you not want more, and more, and more!
its funny, ive tried to bring this subject (when to try again)up with matt already...and our baby isnt even here yet! im 36 weeks preggo! i agree with one of the comments, i think IF does play a factor (and my age!) in the urgency!!!:-)
good luck!!!!

twondra said...

That's so cute! I can't wait to hear when things get set in motion. :)

Nicole said...

I agree with Baby Wanted! :) I think it you think you're ready and it's the right time, go for it!! I'm curious to hear about your docs reaction when you call him and say you're ready for your FET already (two month old in tow), hehe. Good luck! I'm super excited to hear about it. Being pregnant now, I'm SO curious to learn what IF will be like going for #2. Obviously, let's get this one here first, but I have always wanted 4-6 kids (and to have them close in age, like 16-19 months apart), so it's on my mind sometimes.

Sue said...

Well I wish you the best of luck! I hope the next one comes soon! Motherhood fits you well :)

Molly said...

That face could do it to you for sure! We are planning #2 for the near future. :)

hopefuls #1 said...

You are ABSOLUTELY hilarious! I love the fact that a little baby can fill you with such love and make you want more so you can be filled with THAT MUCH more love!!! It's awesome!

You are so cute and so is your baby!!! Good luck on trying for the next!!! Maybe you'll have "Irish Twins"!?!?

E. Williamson said...

The good news is that you can have fun trying :) I too would love more, but we know that ole story. Guess we will wait to see what God has in store for all of us :) Good luck! Can't wait to hear about baby #2!

Stephanie RN BSN (to be!) said...

I'll start praying that you get pregnant the "old fashioned" way without all the pain of IF treatments! You definitely deserve to have a Hadley in your future :)

The Laughlins said...

I left you a prize over on my blog! :)

Erica said...

Check out my blog! I tagged you for an award :)

amanda said...

as a mom of kiddos all close in age...i love to hear it!! and say YAY!!!

Taylor @ Jimmy Choos and a Baby Too said...

He is so cute I would blame him too :) I love your blog-Im a new follower!

M&M Pittman said...

That is insanely close. As an IF mom of kids close in age, I understand but in hindsight I wish I could still have my same 3 kids and have them spaced out more evenly. Your first one just doesn't get enough time to be the baby.

kim_brough said...

And with 2 you'll blog even less.
:( I'm sure your readers play a huge role in your decision. ha ha ha

Dave and Elaine said...

I'm on the "I think you are insane" side (in a friendly way, of course!). But then again, if Trevor has been sleeping through the night at under 2 months old, why wouldn't you want another baby so soon!!?? Just don't be surprised if your next one doesn't do that!! In all seriousness, I wish you the best and hope Cashew is on his/her way soon!!!

Just recently found your blog and felt I should make my first comment. I have four girls very close in age (13 months exactly between 1 and 2, 12 mos and 20 days between 2 and 3, and 18 mos between 3 and 4)-- there's a total of 3.5 yrs between 1 and 4. I was 4 mos postpartum when I got pg with 2 and 3. I was 9.5 mos postpartum when I got pg with 4. I enjoy my children very, very much. I even remember that feeling in your heart of wanting another baby so soon. we were lucky enough to have our wishes granted (immediately). Although, now that they are 4, 3, 2 and 9 mos, i can say that i too wish i would have had my exact kids but spaced 2 yrs or so apart. while i really love how close in age they are because they are great playmates and friends, i look back and it seems the last few years have been a pure whirlwind. if it weren't for my blog, i swear i wouldn't remember most of what's happened (i blame it mostly on the fact that i haven't slept in 5 years). just today i got to spend 45 mins with my second child alone and all i could think about was how nice it was to be able to focus on just one baby. i'm really not here to tell you not to try soon--i just want to give you a perspective from someone who's been there and is just a few years down the road. don't get me wrong, i still want more kiddos. i do wish though, that i would have had more "baby" time with each of my kiddos. I feel bad for making them grow up so fast. but in the same breath, i can say that they are all healthy, well-adjusted, have great social skills, and really know how to share/get along/help themselves/help others/show affection... all because they have 3 sisters to practice with. i wish you the best of luck on your next journey! may your heart only get fuller :) your son is very cute. also, wanted to tell you that when we had ours a year apart it was easier than waiting and having them 18 mos apart. the 18 mo old was much more jealous and aware of the new baby. my newly one year old's really didn't even know better, but still were very interested in and kind to the new baby. so if you want close, i'd shoot for an age diff between a year and 16 mos. best wishes :)
