just three

yesterday, hero turned 5 months old. i can't wrap my brain around the fact that, in 4 weeks, she'll be 6 months old.

i told chas this morning that she's growing up too fast and how strange it is that you only get such a short amount of time with them as babies. then their baby-ness is gone forever. this morning was the first time that i felt a little sad about it all.

it's almost enough to make me want to start trying for another.

but then i miraculously fit into a pair of pre-pregnancy jeans first the first time yesterday and about died of happiness. nothing short of skipping merrily around the house for a good 10 minutes. (i'm getting joyous little butterflies in my tummy right now just thinking about it.)

so no. i don't think a pregnancy is on the horizon for us. i need some more time with my "normal" body and more time with hero, and only hero. i have the rest of my life to be stressed out with multiple children. i'm gonna hold onto this little perfect time, when it's just the three of us, for a while longer.

Goodness it seems everybody these days, once they jump on the baby bandwagon, just decide to have all their kids close together. i'm with you - i'm waiting a while to expand past 3!

these are my thoughts exactly ;) another baby would be fun, because i think about them playing together and being close in age...but then I think about how I want to spend all of this time loving on my first baby and being a family of 3! xo

My sentiments exactly! A little 3 family is perfect, (for now:-) And once you see that belly bump shrink and shrink, it's hard to imagine that whole process again any time soon! xoxo

Oh my goodness, five months! I don't have any babies but I told my husband when we start, ill know when to have another one after I've lost my baby weight haha. By my watch you're about ready! But soaking up having her all to yourselves first sounds like a much better plan

I am so glad that we waited before getting pregnant with our second baby. I love the time we have with the 3 of us and having just one baby and soaking her up and giving her all the attention is so much fun! Whenever I babysit for friends and have more than one kid for a while I get a little sad when I think that when we have more than one I won't be able to give all my attention to one child anymore. Enjoy it!!

That makes perfect sense to me! Those pre-pregnancy jeans need to be worn, and Hero needs to be properly doted upon! ;)

I can't believe she's already 5 months old! Jeepers!
