You are inside my head with this post!

I've been remembering how wonderful being pregnant was, despite the incredibly swollen feet and terrible back pain.

I'm thinking that we will probably work on our second child toward the end of this year.

I'm really giddy at the thought of it, even though I know that it will be more work that I can imagine. What beautiful work it will be, though. :)

Oh, how thrilling to be planning for #2! It IS enough to make you giddy, isn't it?

once i realized that i didn't want a new baby but instead just missed my kids being babies, i knew i was done. that time is over and now it is time to savor the beauty of their childhood.

sweet, sweet post, aliki.

That's such a defining moment, isn't it Christine? I think you're right--that's truly when you realize you're DONE, and that it's time to just relish childhood and everything that follows.
