Hi there...it's me. Just checking in.
It's been so very crazy at work and I haven't had a moment to read most posts, let alone write one.
So here's what I've been thinking about lately: Baby #2. Or, rather, NOT Baby #2.
It seems like SO MANY people are pregnant again! And if they aren't already pregnant with #2, they're trying. I definitely feel in the minority here. But the question here really is whether or not I don't want another one or if the fact that it's highly (HIGHLY) unlikely that I'll get another one, am I telling myself I don't want one? I think I really don't want another one. I know that might change over time, but life is just too perfect and easy right now. What if #2 is fussy and cranky and awful? What if #2 has special needs that are so involved that it takes away from Sofia? What if #2 makes me lose my mind? What if #2 makes us have to file for bankruptcy because we will be SO BROKE!? What if, what if, what if....
So don't have one. Done.
But here's the problem: It's those frozen embryos. What do we do with them? I can't throw them out. I feel like I need to try. But it's crazy to try if we don't really want another one, right? That's why we're giving it time to see how we feel next year. I just don't know what we'll do. There's only 2 and they are staying frozen until we figure this out.
In Sofia news, life is great. She is perfect and wonderful and I love her more every single day. She is such a big girl and I can't believe how we are actually having conversations now. Even though she doesn't have a ton of words, she nods and gets excited and we talk all day long! She knows exactly what we're saying and responds appropriately or follows directions. She's a genius. =) Just kidding...not really.
