    I always thought 3 originally but now being two weeks away from my due date of our first I think we might be lucky to have 2! I couldn’t imagine doing it again at least for another 2 years and with that timeline I’m not sure if I’d be up for a third. πŸ™‚

    @Cash000:  I come from a family of 5, so I’m ok with chaos.  πŸ™‚ 

    I thought our kids were close in age?  How old is your son?  Addie’s almost 1  (in 1.5 weeks!).

    We have one Dear Daughter (6yo), and are planning to TTC by the end of the year. I think 2 will be the max. for us, although I might have wanted/pushed for 3 if we TTCed our 2nd earlier.

    In my perfect world we’d have 4 or 5. But since life isn’t perfect we’d be absolutely happy with 2 or 3. I definitely want more than 1 though.

    Ideally we’d want a big family, whether it comes biologically or from adoption.

    I’ve always wanted to have 4-5 kids so we’ll see what happens. I may decide after one that I’m not doing that again!

    Just one planned for us. 

    Darling Husband is older and I’m not youngin’ πŸ™‚ We both want to keep our jobs & live in the city and give our child everything we possibly can. It would be hard to do that for more than one.

    I have a son from a previous marriage, he has a son from a previous marriage and we have a daughter together.

    I really want to have another for multiple reasons, and he’s happy with one more (unless it’s twins… then we’re stuck with TWO more!!! LOL!). I’d love to have twins, a boy and girl, so we can use the names we love. But, I’ll be happy with whatever we get!

    I voted 4 because that is my max.  I know we want at least 2, beyond that and we will see.

    I’d like to have 2. Reasons for that is because I’d love to have a boy and a girl (if I’m lucky enough) and I’m an only child and I know how lonely it can be not having and siblings.

    @Cash000:  Yep, a girl; Adelaide is her full name.  She has MASTERED walking and now she is just constantly on the move.  πŸ™‚  She’s so much fun!

    Ah, 20 months!  My nephew was such a cutie at that age; I bet Cash is too.  πŸ™‚
