Baby Fever

How do you know you're ready to add to your family? I've have baby fever like, real bad. It's all I can think about! I even have a list of about 35 boy (we've had our next girl name picked out since before Stella was born!) names I like...

I don't know if I'm really ready to add to our family (I think I am), or if I'm just sad that our little Love Bean isn't a baby anymore. She's pretty much weaned herself off her bottle, and some days she thinks she's too big for a morning nap. She'll be 1 tomorrow! I can't believe it's been a year already!

Right now, Tim and I think we want 6 (yes, you read that right) kids. Maybe that will change once we have more, but that's the number we both want right now. Yes, we know that's a lot, especially in today's world. We'd love for all of our kids to be "kind of surprises" like Stella was—we weren't trying to get pregnant, but we weren't trying to not get pregnant either. And I'm not really concerned with how many years are between our children. I'm more concerned with having another one when the timing feels right.

I'd love to hear from all of you—how did you decide you were ready for another child? Was your second/third/fourth child a surprise? Did you decide you wanted X number of years between each child? How did you decide how many kids you wanted?
