Such good news that Nate is nursing well. You're happy that he's growing but I KWYM that it's a little sad to see your newborn grow.
My little 5.5 wk old dd is outgrowing the 0-3 mo. newborn clothes already and just today I was sniffing over the fact that she is not the little newborn I remember...changing all the time. Of course I'm excited that she's more alert, awake, smiling, and bigger. How are the other kids taking to the newcomer and all the changes? Are you enjoying your new house?
We are also debating whether this will be our last child - I'm thinking in my gut that it should be because of what dh keeps saying, and about my own energy/health limits. Dh's mother is moving to our city and she will need our support, so realistically we have to think about the demands we are placing on our time, energy and resources given the fact that eldercare is becoming a reality. If we decide this is the last child I will probably get my tubes tied because I don't want an oops, and I don't want to decide whether or not to have an ab*rtion (ugh)....it's just sad because if this is it, this is it. But I am trying to keep it in perspective and acknowledge the pleasure, joy and gifts I receive from the two kids I have. And I realize that my life can still be rich and joyful with these two children alone. YK?
So I hear you on the vasectomy, TiffanyPartyof5. Kehliouise - so funny that you are already thinking about a third, me too!
