I remember my Uncle Dave telling me, "if you wait for everything to be 'right,' you'll never have a baby."

I think your list is spot on, but I would add, and this is far from romantic, a relatively stable (is that currently possible?) financial situation.

I love how you stressed the last "love" in your final point. You need a lotta love to get through those sleepless nights...

You do need lots of love--not just for that wee one who keeps you up, but for your partner, too!
