Am I physically ready to put myself through that again? Am I emotionally ready? Is Caleb ready? When Ryan and I thought about trying the first time, Dad told me, "If you wait until you are ready to have a child, that time will never come. There will always be something pushing it further back on the list." I know he's right. I know now is about a good a time as any. Caleb is young. He's not used to being the only child. Ryan and I are still young. Would we regret one day if we choose not to have another child? Would we be happy enough spoiling the heck out of Caleb? There are so many unanswered questions today. I believe God will lead me down the correct path. I am going to pray about it and just wait for His answer. Sometimes I think that whatever happens, happens. Just let things go their natural course. I consulted my dad (my go-to guy for all things complicated) and the biggest grin spread across his face. Then he made some dumb comment about watching myself around that "Del Signore" boy at night! (Sorry, Dad, I think it's a little late for that!) Okay, seriously, he was no help in this matter. My mom won't be either. I know where she stands (she'd have fifty children if her body and money could have afforded it). My father-in-law was even wanting to know when we were having another before I even delivered my son! Yeah, I think the odds are stacked in their favor if we were to cast a vote.
For now Ryan and I choose to pray, think, and let things happen as they may. If you care to send prayers our way, please pray that God guide us down the right path. Thanks!
