Oh DH...he's always full of surprises. I had a feeling something was up.
We had always sort of planned to space our kids further apart (if we had more than one).
He's made a few comments in the past about wanting to have the kids closer together, but I never took them seriously.
Lately, he's been staring at the photos on our wall (we have a collage of my maternity/newborn photos) and talking about how small Audrina was, etc, which he NEVER does. He's also been commenting about how she's all grown up, and when we have our next baby, I can stay home with the kids. The fact that he's bringing up this kinda stuff without any pestering from me is all out of the norm.
Then today he went hunting with his Dad, and Dad's buddy, "Will." "Will" has a 17 month old and is expecting their second in 7 weeks. I commented to DH about how that was close together, and he said, well, I want to have our second closer together. So I said, "like how close?"
I about fell over when he said, "well maybe we should start trying this Fall. I love being a Dad so much!"
I'm still kind of on the fence, but excited that DH is thinking about it, and that I won't have to pester him to TTC. It sounds like he'll be ready before me!
So, pending that his business continues to do as well as it's currently doing, and that I warm up to the idea of having the kids a little closer together, I only have a 7 month wait to TTC, instead of 17 months!!
Holy smokes...it sounds crazy even thinking that I may be TTC this year!!
I thought I replied to this when you first posted it but I guess somehow it didn't post.
Hacking off 10 months is Awwe-sum!!! I bet it feels so great knowing you may be getting a BFP in the fall!! We also shaved a little time off of our wttc date. It may be foolish for us not to wait 6 months but we are both ready NOW... but waiting 4 months total is all we can stand to do. We will be ttc the end of Feb. Hooray for ttc dates moving closer and closer
