DH and I are seriously talking about TTC when Creighton is between 6and 12 months old. We just kind of feel that there is such an age difference between him and the other children that he will essentially be alone. My oldest daughter had the huge age difference between her and the other children and while she loved them the interaction between them got less and less as she got older (she is 19 now while the other children are 10,8 and 7 plus Creighton).
The 3 middle children have always known each other and always had each other and while they may want to kill each other often they are very close and we want Creighton to have that as well. So tell me.. have I completely lost my mind?

I don't think you have lost your mind at all! Makes sense to me I think it is a great idea. I want Lily to have a sibling around her age too. We are still trying to decide how much of an age gap to have between children though.
I say go for it. Right after I had Cruz, I thought no way would I have another. DH wants as many as possible. In the last few weeks, though, I feel like my family isn't complete yet so, yeah, I want a 4th! Since I'm "old" we'll probably start trying again when Cruz is 1 or a little younger.

I don't think there is a right or wrong number when it comes to families. If you want another than go for it. I loved growing up with siblings close in age to me so I deffinately see why you'd want that for your baby.
I think if it is something you are thinking about then that means you are not done. You know when you meet women who are done. They are like 'I am DONE and I better not be pregnant!" If you are not too that point, then have more.
