Literally less than an hour after DD's birth two years ago, I was telling DH "That was fun, let's do it again!" He still teases me about that.

While pregnant with DS (10 days old now!) I was quite sure I wanted two more kids to follow - I just had to convince DH.

But that last month of pregnancy was much harder, now that I've got a toddler to chase around. For the first time, I was *done* being pregnant.

And now, I'm still trying to figure out how to juggle the needs of a newborn and a toddler. Trying to do this with another child (or two!) seems like an impossibility.

So if I had to decide today, I'm not sure what I'd choose. I figure (hope?) that one I get my groove back, this will seem like a piece of cake and I'll be willing to jump back on the horse again. I still like the *idea* of four kids....

But realistically, I don't think we could do it financially. I'd like to be able to give the three kids everything they need without thinking twice, I'd like for them to do all the sports and activities that they enjoy. I don't think we could afford for 4 kids to do that:
