It's on my mind....

Another baby, that is. I didn't think it would be so soon. Jareth is now almost 14 months old and for the longest time I didn't think I would want another baby for several years. Lately though I've been thinking about what it will be like to have two little Andersons running around. And now that I have a son I have been thinking about having a daughter. I would love for Jareth to have a little brother, brothers are great. But a little sister would be very sweet. I've caught myself crooning over tiny sweater dresses and tights. And bows are soooo cute! Oh, and I saw the most adorable little girl's boots the other day. They were black and furry and just precious..... oh dear..... I need to stop.
I'm really not ready for another baby yet. I finally lost the baby weight and Jon and I both have been working out at the Y several times a week. Plus, the thought of more diapers, wipes, and going back to formula and baby food sounds exhausting. "Exhausting" was the first word that came to mind. Plus, I still want more time with my little cricket. He is growing very fast and I want to let him be the baby for a little longer.
What I need is for some of my friends to have babies already! If you are reading, you know who you are! Cough, cough...Heather...cough, cough.....Erin.....cough, cough....Evelyn...cough. Sorry, I just had a major coughing fit for some reason ; )
Anyhoo, Jon and I did have a conversation the other night about when we want to try again. We are thinking this time next year. Maybe around September. Jareth would be about 3 when the next one is born. I think that's a good distance apart. So, that's the plan for now unless I get mega baby fever between now and then. Wish Jon luck.
