I wish I was younger... then we could wait a couple more years. DH is 35, and I'm 32. Plus, as much as I want another baby, I'm also excited to do kid stuff with my older 2. I just want to make sure that i have enough attention to go around for everyone.

we knew we wanted #3 but weren't sure when... then when Brennan was 2 1/2 we started trying, and ofcourse it took us a year to conceive Lyla....

having #3 wasnt that much of an adjustment bc of the ages of the boys... and Lyla just goes along with the flow....

Exactly! Part of the time we think, we really love having a baby and it would be nice to have another, but at the same time, if we had another it would seriously change our standard of living on our current income. We think it's kind of selfish to diminish the entire family's standard of living on something that we are not totally 100% sold on yet. I want to have another baby, but it's not a major drive with me. I won't feel incomplete without one.

We are still open to #3 but really need to get on it pretty much right away as I will be 40 in September.

I have an appt with the fertility clinic in a few months so I guess we will have to make some firm decisions by then.

Our biggest hang up is that we are looking at having 4 kids on the weekends we have my stepdaughter. That means getting a vehicle big enough to seat 6. Neither one of us wants a minivan...and SUV's that hold that much are such gas guzzlers. We both wanted 3 kids...and technically we have them...but we were talking last night about the fact that his daghter is only with us 4 days a month and every other week during teh summer. She doesn't even really try to plug into our family unit because we are more like a weekend vacation to her. So we both feel like we only have 2.5 kids.
