I've written a couple of posts about our inability to decide when to have our second child, but I think we've finally come to a resolution, and I feel relieved. There have been so many more factors to consider this time around, and it's honestly been a bit overwhelming.
I've always tried to be a bit hands-off for the major decisions in my life, feeling much more confident letting God decide their outcome. Having Evan was no exception, but this time around things have been more complicated.
We had originally planned to start trying right about now. However, we weren't feeling any peace about it, so we've officially decided to wait one more year. When we first talked about waiting longer, I was a little disappointed. But, It's a decision we've prayed a lot about, and now I know it's the right one.
In some ways, I'm ready now, and in other ways I don't know if I'll ever be ready. We want to be prepared financially for our second child and all the things that might entail, and that's probably best accomplished by waiting the extra year.
In the meantime, I'm going to enjoy Evan some more...and maybe even get him potty-trained!
