One Day, but Not Quite Yet

I have loved every minute of being a mom.  Kate's adoption was pretty perfect and at some point we definitely want to give her a little brother or sister (Kevin says brother).  We have always said we wanted more than one child.  Kate's already 17 (almost 18!) months old, and even though she is still very small, some days I miss this...


And this...


Oh, and this...


Yes, I do miss the little-bitty stage.  We always said that we would start the adoption process again when Kate turned 1, which was the soonest that our adoption agency would let us.  But when Kate turned 1 back in August, Kevin and I looked at each other and said "No way!".  We were definitely NOT ready for another baby.  At some point we will be going through that little-bitty stage again, but not just yet.  So right now, we're enjoying this...


And this...


And yes, even this...


And when we're ready to adopt again, we'll know.

  1. She is so cute! We waited years until we decided to try again! Infact our daughter was 9 when we decided we would try for one whole year and if we wasn't matched in that year we would just have an only child. Our year was up in December and although we had a few matches none of them worked out but we are okay with that! You are right you will know when it time!

    1. Exactly! Did y'all decide to keep waiting and see what happens? Adoptions are crazy. Sometimes they go fast, and sometimes they take forever, but you always get the "perfect" baby for your family. :)

  5. Thanks for the comment on my blog! We wanted at least 4 years between our kids. They ended up being 9 years apart- which is perfect for us. You'll know when the time is perfect.
