After you had your first child, did your idea of the 'ideal' family size [for you] change? If so, did you decide you wanted more or less?
After Seth, we knew we wanted 2. I would have been happy to stick at 2, if I hadn't got pregnant with Iris. After losing her I think we are happy to go with as many as we are blessed with. Saying that, I'm quite happy with 3 atm

We always wanted 2-3. After our second my husband left it up to me to whether we had a third or not.
There were points along the way I thought two was good and I could see just having the two.
But then after several months I realized someone was missing and we needed a third to complete our family. Im glad I followed that feeling cuz Devinn was definately meant to be in our home and complete our family.
I wanted three, but I was already over 30 when we started TTC and it took us a long time to conceive our first. I don't know if it will take as long to conceive #2 (or even if we'll succeed) so I don't think we'll have more than 2. I'm very ok with that as I have my hands full with just one right now!
