If we had everything planned perfect we would not have even tried till my mom retired which I had miscalculated and thought was last year lol! Now I am wondering when I can manage number two with work since I used all my sick time already and no pay for three months kinds screws all. Wanted to have three right together but financially how will that work? So realistically probably another two years. Keep telling myself not to overthink it though as I'll never have another then.

I think we'll be waiting to try until after Michael's deployment. Which is kind of disappointing...but honestly, it is probably for the best. We'll be in a much better position financially then, and it will give us a bit more time to get settled. Still kind of sucks, though.

Yay, that is exciting!! I did photos every week when I was prego, until 35 weeks when I just didn't want to contemplate the idea of being pregnant for 5-7 more. Lol.

We were going to evaluate when Falon hit 18 months but I think we're going to wait until 2 years instead. There's a lot of job and potential move things happening and I just don't feel ready to start trying again. Still kind of sad though, there's a giant baby wave happening all around me and it makes me miss the tiny squish stage.

I know those feels! (((hugs))) It's hard to look at these things logically sometimes!

We also put TTC on hold after back to back family emergencies it might be a long while, a year + til we try again. Waiting does suck, especially when your kid suddenly becomes a huge lanky opinionated toddler and just isn't an infant anymore at all.

Your bump is so cute, Dizzy!

I did belly shots every week, except I missed a few weeks here and there, especially towards the end. I loved being pregnant and I miss it! I don't want another child for at least a couple of years, though! Definitely don't want more than one in diapers at the same time.

She's 6 weeks old and smiley now! AND she's sleeping 6-7 hours straight through every night on average now. It's amazing.

We went to the beach last week and put her toes in the water!

Yeahhh...but then your opinionated toddler hands you a rock, says "Tatu!" (Thank you!) and your heart melts.

A coworker just had a baby and I squished her this week. I could hear my ovaries screaming. We're still not trying/not preventing.

But in discussing with my coworker, it's clear that in a lot of cases, the newborn period sucks.
Huge.
So much.
Ev screamed for 8 weeks straight.

It was still worth it but I wish someone had prepped me and said how much it might suck and that it's still normal and okay and it will end. So there, preggos. I've now said it. Your baby might cry a ton, but it won't be your fault and you'll still be doing a great job.

Lillian also says Tatu for thank you when she hands you stuff (all the rocks!). Toddlers do rock, I loveeeee this age! But I miss stuff like her sleeping on me, nursing, and the little firsts like her first laugh...but partially I think I was on a bit of a hormone high earlier on and now I'm my regular unstable self, I guess it's usually the opposite.

Lillian rocked as a newborn! It was like... 3-8 months that was tough. Now the hardest part is keeping her contained and the house not covered in food. I can deal with a "we sit on the couch, not jump on it" tantrum much easier than I can deal with 5 hours of "hold me 75 degrees from your body facing outward walking at a 3 mile per hour pace in a 68 degree room with the lights dimmed" haha
