Hello, it is nice to see there are more larger families out there. You hardly ever see more then 3 kids and that seems like a big family, we are just sick
We had our 1st ds in 93 and waited 4 yrs. before dd. Then 5 yrs. later we were in a better financial position and said "lets have one more." We'll my dd's were 6 years apart and "I" thought maybe we should have ONE more so she wouldn't feel like a sort of only child growing up. I just happened to get pregnant a little quicker than I wanted and they were only 15 months apart. So we made an appt. for dh to get the big snip snip. He had to work late that night and missed the appt.
and low and behold 14 months later came my little Miyah
but before my little angel was born, I took him to the dr. my self when I was 8 mo. pregnant and pushed him out of the car and didn't let him back in until he was finished with his date with the scissors. I did feel sort of like an elephant with the whole pregnant for 3 years thing.
When I told my oldest son about our 3rd daughter it was exciting and he cut the cord (home/waterbirth) Then we told him about the 4th he was just like OKAY that's alot of kids! Then I sat him down and told him about the 5th and he just shook his head and just looked at me and said "How did this happen???" I asked him if he really wanted to know and he promptly said "NO that's fine!"
Now my pumpkin is 15 months and tonight my oldest said "She is soooo cute and sweet" "I couldn't imagine life without her!"
I never thought I would have a family this big but it is the best thing in the WORLD! I can honestly say I LOVE it! It can be crazy at times but over all it's great. By the way, we drive a ford excursion (seats 8) and we absolutely love it! Terrible on gas mileage though (11 miles to the gallon
