I don't know if I can help either, but wanted to encourage you. Agreeing on family size can be frustrating...I agree that your desire to have more children should be nurtured --- maybe you can try (again?) to share your thoughts with him.
Maybe there’s an underlying reason why your DH is not interested in having more children right now? Perhaps his experiences as the youngest of 6 kids are influencing him? Perhaps he worries that he won't be able to devote himself to more children? There are a thousand possibilities, of course.
My own DH has been ready for kids for a long time ---in our case it was me that needed time to "get ready". His loving patience not only allowed me to resolve some internal dilemmas but also deepened my love & respect for him. I know my ideas seemed silly at times, but he quietly listened to them all(!), and reassured me that he would wait for me. HTH.
