Last Sunday a friend asked me when I was due, and the other day one of my patients started calling me mama because she said I act like one...so it's a pretty common topic of conversation. Also, both of us are the oldest in our families, so grandbabies and great-grandbabies are being looked forward to with much anticipation.
Before I answer though, lets take a walk through my "Maybe Baby" board on Pinterest.
Here we have maternity outfits:
We have gender reveals:
We have mommy DIY projects:
And things to buy:
There are some mommy articles:
Future party ideas:
And even one or two dream nurseries:
So I can see that the evidence is stacked against me here, but the official answer is no. We do not plan on having littles any time soon. The unofficial answer is that we'd really really like a couple one day.
Surprisingly, I can honestly say that I don't even have baby fever right now. My Matthew and I are just now getting comfortable in our marriage, and I go to sleep at night happy that our relationship has come so far. Our love has really matured and we look forward to it continuing to get better all the time! A few months ago, we even had a little pregnancy scare, and I was embarrassed to admit that I felt sad about it...we are doing all that we can to prepare for the perfect environment to raise our little family, and it just wouldn't be perfect if he/she/they came before we were ready for them emotionally and financially.
Just for fun though, here are some FAQ's
1. Will you be having a boy or a girl first?
Laynah: A girl. Definitely, surely, 100% a girl.Matthew: Boy. But I guess I could teach a girl to work on a car too.
2. What are possible names?
Laynah: All of the Disney princess names are great options.
Matthew: My wife will make me a list, and I will cross off the ones I can't stand.
3. Who will the baby look like?
Laynah: I want a mini me! Although I had a dream that my kid looked like hubs.
Matthew: Me. Even Laynah's subconscious admits it.
4. How many?
Neither of us can think of a good number. We think we'll just know when it happens, like all of the sudden our family will feel complete after #3 or #4 or something.
