More Babies?

With Scarlett getting older, I've been thinking about how it would feel to be pregnant again.  What would my life be like with another baby around?  Would I ever have free time?  How would another baby effect Scarlett and the attention that I give her? 

I know three friends who are pregnant right now and they all have little ones around Scarlett's age.  Sometimes I think they're crazy, but then other times, I could picture myself doing the same.

Tyler and I have been talking about having another baby.  I'm still nursing Scarlett now, though, and I want to have a little time to get back in shape and feel like it's my body, not Scarlett's nap time snack machine!  Also, Scarlett and I are rocking it out!  We can go out & about with relatively little planning and she can stay awake and happy for longer and longer periods of time.  At home, we play, clean, and read lots, but I also can sneak in a few moments of "me" time to refuel! 

We're not going to rock the boat just yet...only one baby in diapers at a time in this household!  And we have Alyssa with us lots & lots, so it's almost like having two babies already!  Maybe in a year we'll be ready to add to the Smith family...

PS--I like to read Meghann's blog and her son, Carter, is super-cute!  Though this post made me wonder about the's a little scary to think about and makes me want to tell Scarlett and Alyssa, "Colby or Thomas."  ;)

Scarlett, 2 months old!
