And then we were complete.

I can’t believe 2012 is wrapping up. Like, just yesterday, I was huge and pregnant and Casey was documenting the life that was to (soonly) come.

Part of me desperately wants to recreate this place and time. I have a real and true love for pregnancy and being a lady in waiting, but with all good thing, my time has passed. I’m waving these days goodbye.

In just a few weeks, my last child, baby Paul ,will be one years old.

I know, how is that possible? (I ask myself this question every day)

Having a baby is hard. To the moms to come, the sleeplessness? It gets better, I promise. My pro-tips, invest in a good mattress And then we were complete., a solid monitor And then we were complete., and for the love of everything that is holy, don’t watch the zombies And then we were complete. before bed or you’ll never get any sleep.

And consider a swaddler And then we were complete.,  it’s tops, regardless of what the baby thinks.

So without throwing too much fanfare in the air, I’m announcing (not that it needs to be announced, but I feel a good kind of closure typing it out) that we’re done having babies. DONE-DONE-DONE-DONE (four times over DONE).

It’s a mixed emotion type of time, but we’re solid in our decision. We’re feeling complete with the four little souls God has entrusted us to raise and nurture.

I keep telling myself I can’t keep having babies because I like babies…

But oh, I love me a good baby snuggle. Give ‘em to me….

  1. Such a big decision! I think we are there, too, just nothing permanent. Yet. I love being pregnant but have never been so terrified of being pregnant as I have been lately, so yeah. Done.

  2. While you might be done with babies, you still have a lot of good years left with those kiddos :-)

  5. We reached that same decision when I was pregnant with #3. When baby girl was born we finally felt full, besides the fact that pregnancy and I are incompatible. Now we just have to raise them up!

  7. This is what I tell myself – there will always be babies to snuggle, but they do not have to be MY babies (obviously! ha!).

    My niece recently got engaged so I’m passing the torch on to her…

    It’s a great feeling, isn’t it? :)

  8. I know. I keep telling myself that EVENTUALLY I am going to have to have a LAST child, so I guess it may as well be now (since the hubby is DONE). I would seriously love another one, though. Most days. ;)
