Maybe I'm crazy but I always think about another baby, a third. Once Paige was born I said minutes later that I wanted another one. We got pregnant with Parker when Paige was 16 months old. Parker is just about to turn 15 months, if we followed the same pattern I'd be pregnant again in just over a month. The decision to have a second was simple, it seemed like it was just meant to be. We didn't have to try very hard to conceive unlike Paige who took us 16 months, spooky!
Once Parker was born it took me a little while longer to want another, 4 days infact! Haha. I just love having a babies, I love seeing them together, I love pregnancy (once the sickness passes). I've always wanted a big family, 4/5/6 children. But life isn't that simple. If we had a third we'd need a bigger car and a bigger house (eventually). A third seems like such a huge jump. I feel like it's pretty normal to have two children. Loads of things are for family of fours. When people ask if we are going to have another and I say maybe they look at me like I'm mad. They mention how we already have one of each, why would we want/need another.
I don't feel like our family is quite complete, will I ever? I love both Paige and Parker so much. If we weren't blessed with another baby I would be more than happy to concentrate on them two and be the best mummy I could be. I'd feel sad knowing that I would of already experienced my last pregnancy and had my last birth experience though.
I didn't know when the right time to have Parker was but it happened perfectly. I don't know if there will ever be a right time for a third but if there is I'll welcome it with open arms.
If Paige got her way she'd have 5 brothers and sister's. She is such a good big sister and Parker would be the best big brother.
So will we have a third?
Lets see what the future holds.
Do you have three children? Was the descion easy? Did you decide against having a third?
