Baby Fever

I have never experienced baby fever, until now. Annalee was a complete surprise, and Shelby was a logical decision beause I wanted the girls close in age. I am feeling this new, kind of wanting feeling. I love being a mom. Don't get me wrong, there are days I have fantasies about working full time, feeling significant, not listening to whining, or serving as a jungle-gym, but I do love having a family. I enjoy watching our little "unit" interact. And I do feel ready to have another. But, I promised myself and my body that I would be stronger this time. My back and abs were so weak when I got pregnant with Shelby, I had a pretty uncomfortable 9 mths. So, I am training for a sprint triathlon. I thought I would have to wait until spring to complete one before I could try for another babe. But, I found one in Sand Diego in December. We are going to shoot for that one. It will all depend on $, I hate that. But, one day, sooner than later, $ will not determine how big I can dream. That is another story...

The baby fever must be contagious cause even though Jocey is only 6 months next week, I want more. I think being around Carla Cockson's boys makes me crazy...

Hmmm....baby fever? I sometimes get that. Then it goes away whenever someone else has another :) Y'all are amazing with 2 kiddos. Press on...press on!
