Perhaps it's because a number of lovely friends have recently announced that they are expecting again....through adoption or pregnancy. Y'all know who you are. ;-)
Or perhaps it's because we are head over heels in love with a certain baby boy who has shown us just how incredible parenthood truly is.
Then again, maybe it's because we learned something this week that could put us on a 2nd journey to parenthood a bit sooner than we thought.
Or, heck, it's all those combined and more...
This mama has the baby itch. Big time.
So bad, it makes me want to run down to the government building and get fingerprinted or fill out countless forms.
'Cause the magic that can happen after doing those somewhat mundane things is this kind of wonderful...
Yep, I'm itchin' to make Si a big brother. And actually Josh is just as itchy. We are not 100% sure exactly how or when that will happen, but it is something that we've started talking a lot about and praying for. While the ache to have a child is gone since it's been replaced with the joy of having Si as our son, the desire to grow our family is still very much alive.
Our journey to Josiah was 4+ years long, but it came in the good Lord's perfect timing. For this (potential) next "leg" of the journey, we will once again place it all in God's hands and follow His lead....whether He chooses to bless us with another child or if He sees fit for us to be the parents of one precious babe. As we wait for the plan to unfold, we will enjoy every.single.moment with Josiah.
So that's that for now. Nothing to start jumping up and down about yet, but it's definitely something. And it's itchy. The good kind. :-)
I guess you'll just have to stay tuned!
Now excuse me while I go bury my nose in my baby boy's neck and cover him with kisses....
