Honestly.

After visiting my new neice, I can honestly say I'm done.

It's been hard for me to get to this point, and though I've proclaimed it before - it really sunk in yesterday.

Yesterday I could hold a nearly three week old baby and my uterus didn't ache. For the longest time I wanted my boy to have a brother, but it just wasn't in the cards.

I love my family for what it is.

Three is enough.

You and I are on the same EXACT wave length. I wanted another boy too for my son. But I have friends with newborns and I don't have that ache either like I did after my 2nd child. I feel satisfied with my son and 2 daughters, and I think 3 is a beautiful number. :)
Sometimes things are just as they should be.

I have 2 boys and my husband and I are thinking of having a 3rd - not for a girl as some might think, although a girl would be nice. Sometimes I think 3 boys would be nice...all in God's hands I guess. But anyway, I'm not over that "ache" yet...

Funny how that happens. I had serious medical complication right after The Boy's birth. (It was not an easy pregnancy and the birth was worse.) The Man and I decided that given the risk involved one was enough for us. Still part of me played the "maybe we should" -- my sister has her second last year, she's adorable but you know, the urge to have another has completely gone.

I am almost there. But not quite. I still wonder about that second boy...

I am with mayberrys. Almost there, but not quite. DH, however, is completely there. I would like to hold an itty bitty baby to be sure! Fortunately, one of my coworkers is pg.
