Shocked

Sorry for the delay in posts. I normally wait 3 months before sharing this kind of information, because I truly feel it's best that way BUT......well, this time, it's PURE shock!

We planned on having another child. We planned to start trying next year...but God is pretty awesome, and after 34 years, I have learned to accept his plans over mine. He has NEVER let me down, even when I doubt him. So, if he decides that this is the perfect time....13 MONTHS apart....*my stomach hurts when I think of how close these kids will be* BUT, I say, I can handle it!

I have a strong feeling this is yet another boy. I have never been wrong with my intuition. So, bring on the soccer games, t-ball, wet puppy dog smell, frog lovin', sword fighting times!!

If you have had children close in age, or you yourself are close in age with your sibling please reassure me this will be fun. lol

xoxo, Veronica

Congratulations! Sadly I dont have any children, but I have always thought that it would be lovely to have two close in age - and just think, the dirty nappy stage will be over much more quickly this way!

It is hard but you can do it ;)
but I love that they grow up together, now my DD is 12 DS 11, and love that they can take care of each other, and they are inseparable.

Veronica, congratulations!! And yes, it is scary for the parent, but I know that growing up with 2 sisters (we're each about 15-16 months apart), we had our squabbles, but we always had a friend on our side. And now, we're so close. Of course there will be challenges, there always are, but you have so much to look forward to!

Congratulations! I have identical twin boys (4 1/2 years old) so they are about a minute apart! : ) It is hard but fun just the same. They have their squabbles but they are eachothers best friend and biggest champions!

My first two girls were 12 months and 2 days apart. It was so much fun! Back then I thought one a year would be okay. God Bless!!

Congrats. i'm about 20months apart from my brother. so i had to play with hot wheels, marbles and even wore some of hand me downs. but that was just fine. we've had our close moments and "stay away" from me moments. wouldn't trade! good luck with another boy, they'll sure to be best buddies!

Oh my goodness Veronica!!! That is so awesome! I know God has His hands all over this and if this little one is indeed a boy, your life will certainly be full of sweaty hugs and ball fields, but they will also adore you so much! Congratulations friend!

Congratulations - I have 3 boys - the first two are 17 months apart and then I had another 20 months later - and I wouldn't have it any other way. My baby is now 2 and they all get on so well together, with similar interests! You'll love it :-)

Congrats! My sister and I are about 11 months apart and though we had some rough times off and on, we really are great friends!!

~jan said...

Congratulations! It might be better/easier if this one is a boy since they will be so close. :) My first 2 are 16 months apart, as opposite as can be both in looks and personality but get along famously and always have. The days will be long, but they years short!

kaitlin said...

Oh my! Congratulations! I agree- God knows us best...what a happy surprise :)

I have 1 girl and 3 boys....my daughter is 5 years older than the boys. The older boys are 14 mo. apart and the last and the middle boy are 2 years apart....I had to figure out how to hold a car seat with a baby in it in one hand a toddler in the other...and for a short time had 3 in diapers all at the same time.....but: it is wonderful and worth it. Rest assure you will be tired and may not actually remember it all :D , but take lots of pictures, and enjoy it because it will fly by....mine are now 6,5,and 3 ( and my daughter is 11)And it flew by all too quickly.

Hi,
congrats! My children are 13 months apart. 1st child was planned, 2nd wasn't, but I wouldn't have it any other way. It was a perfect age gap between the two. It wasn't hard and you get through the similar stages easier,I would think, than say 5 years apart?!
