Oh Baby!

I am frequently asked when baby #3 will be in the works. My response every time ... "Oh no! No more babies for us!" I am done having babies. I have been blessed with 2 healthy and happy boys, and that is good enough for me. I am content. I am satisfied. I am so thankful I ended up with boys! I don't know if I could have handled a girl - as a baby, absolutely! But come pre-teen, puberty and teenage years ... let's not even go there. I had wonderful pregnancies, gained over 80 pounds between the two of them, and absolutely adored the baby stages. I will quit while I am ahead. So unless divine intervention takes place, there will be no more kiddos in our future.

Here are my little guys just a few months old ...

2 is a good number. i always find it funny when people ask when the next ons is coming....why can we not be happy with 1, 2, 3, etc kids. why so much pressure people? when people ask me and i always laugh...and then tell them i am still not sleeping thru the night. :)

Oh my word. I gotta post a picture of Natalie next to Maddox. I'm thinkin' they look so much alike. Is that weird to say, considering one is a girl and one a boy? Unbelievable. TOO Cute. I kinda thought you could, maybe, sorta have an announcement too : ) Love the post!

Oh, your boys are SO adorable!!! I love babes too, and I AM wanting another super bad. I just go back and forth b/c I go crazy sometimes with the two I've got, so I can only imagine what a third would do! Probably send me over the edge!

Like some of the other commenters, I was thinking you were going to share something... ;)

I have come to the conclusion that people only ask that all the time because as they say "misery loves company"! Just Kidding!
Ha Ha!
