    I never wanted any, till I had dd #1 (shes 14 now). After her, I wanted more, but not sure of how many.
    Then I had #2..shes 8 now, #3 is 4 and #4 is 4 months.
    Now I wish we had planned them closer together so I could have had more by now...by now as the doc says I shouldnt have more because of my bp and that Im not getting any younger (35 in March).
    But I planned them farther apart.
    Funny, #1 and #2 werent planned, but 3 and 4 were. Guess we are the opposite of most ppl that get surprises later.

    "When I am looking at them all it does NOT seem like that many to me. But when I say the number out loud, ... *then* it's like... wow.... WE HAVE NINE KIDS!"

    Yup. Except for me, it's when I say, "We have 2 girls and FIVE BOYS." Five. Boys. It just sounds so much worse than it is, lol.

    Oh, and I always knew I wanted a big family. I always said I wanted 6 kids. I got my 6 and a spare, but I'd have another one in a heartbeat. In fact, we're hoping to adopt a couple more. :D
