I love writing titles that I know will first get an "Oh my gosh!" response. No, I'm not preggers and not even close to thinking about it. Now that Makenzie is over a year old the questions are starting, "So when are you guys gonna have another baby?"
I love being a mommy and I love Makenzie with all my heart but I am SO not ready for another baby, like REALLY not ready. I have a lot of friends that are pregnant with baby number two right now so maybe that's what's sparking the questions but I just can't imagine being pregnant again or having another baby. I don't know if it's because it's only been 6 months since I've fully, physically recovered from Makenzie's birth or if it's because I have such a strong desire to breastfeed the next baby but every time I think of it, it leaves an empty pit in my stomach. I guess all of the negative aspects of Makenzie's birth are still fresh enough that the thought of having another baby literally makes me anxious and almost makes me sick. I am also SO enjoying Makenzie and the fun stage that she's at that I'm not ready to be busy with another baby yet.
I know that God will prepare me and put the desire in both mine and Dirk's hearts when the time is right but I'm not thinking that this will be for at least another year, if not more. So, if you were wondering when there will be a baby number 2 for the Dallas family, you can now know that it won't be for quite some time. I just had to get that off my chest...heh.
And just because all posts are more fun with a picture, here's a picture of Kenzie with her first ponytail. After about 10 minutes it's a hot mess but it looks so cute while it lasts.
