- Wedding: November 2011
I just got married 6 months ago, and so far, I love married life. It’s so great to have someone to snuggle and talk to at the end of each day. Before we got engaged, I liked to daydream about getting married. (I was ready for that about a year before Darling Husband was.) Now that we are married, I keep daydreaming about the next step!
Yeah, I’m afraid I have a mild case of baby fever. I’m not absolutely chomping at the bit, dying to have one right this second. I’m ok waiting another year or so before TTC- I promised Darling Husband we could hold off until our first anniversary before having a serious discussion on a timeline. (He’s more nervous about the idea than I am.) But at any given time, it seems like 4-5 of my facebook friends are expecting so I can’t help but wonder what it will be like when it’s our turn- such as what pregnancy will be like, whether we’ll have boys or girls, what names we’ll chose, what personalities they will have, what our family will be like, how we will balance disapline and freedom. It’s not even just about babies- I love kids too. They are such amazing little people. I’m looking forward to helping them grow into amazing adults.
My Darling Husband has a great new job, and we are planning to buy a house next year, but otherwise, the only reason we are waiting is to really enjoy our time as a family of two for a little while longer. I want at least one more big trip somewhere before we add a baby into the equation.
We just moved across the country for DH’s new job a few months ago, so I’m not working yet, but I’ve been hired to be a day camp counselor at a Jewish Community Center this summer. So I’ll get to spend the summer playing with other people’s kids. 🙂
