Number Two

No, not poop.

Although I wouldn't be surprised if I did blog about poop one day.

But today, I'm talking about baby number two.

I've been asked about 1,763,245 times when we're planning on "giving" Declan a brother or sister. And I always answer, "It'll be a while!"

I want Declan to be potty trained. I want him to be able to grasp the concept of sharing his parent-time / toys / space with a sibling. I want to be finished with my schooling. I want to be back to my pre-pregnancy weight or below. I want to be financially stable. I want to be older.

Basically, we are looking at 3-4 more years.

While we're on the subject of the next baby, Aaron and I have been discussing names more lately. I hate to ruin the surprise so early, but here are some that we're thinking of:

Archer (almost certainly our next boy name - no stealing!)
Sawyer
Jonah
Leo
Beckett (middle name only, to avoid confusion with cousin Becky.)

Annabelle
Everly
Isla
Rosemary
Violet
Hadley
Scarlett

Just felt like putting those out there. We're totally open to commentary and/or suggestions, since we have tons of time.

And number two won't be our last. Three is my minimum. Five is Aaron's maximum. We're pretty settled on three, but I might be able to squeeze a fourth in there (out there?) once he sees how fun three is. :)

Thanks for worrying about me and the name confusion, but I must agree that Archer is an awesome name.

Oh, and this whole notion of more babies is
a) awesome
b)scary - for me that is- you and Jessica are making me look bad
c) awesome again- the more the better!
