Missing

I've been having some interesting feelings lately. I'll have all three kids around me, then I'll think to myself "where's ..." but no name comes. I'm looking for someone who doesn't exist yet! It's that someone-is-missing-from-our-family feeling. Does anyone else get those?

I know there's another little person waiting to come down to our family. And I think there's just one more. So I'm excited to get them here and have our little family complete! But don't worry, I know I have a little baby already right now, and my sister and I have a pact not to get pregnant this year, so little baby will just have to wait a little while longer. But, sweet baby, I know you're there and waiting, and your time will be here soon!

Oh yes. When we would kneel down for family prayers before school, my mum would look around and say "who's missing?" even though all 6 kids were there with her and my dad. That stopped after my youngest sister, Caitlin was born. ;)

No, this is a bad pact. You should get pregnant soon so you can have an 11/11/11 baby!!! What an awesome birthday!

How about 12/12/12?

That happened to me before Eliza was born. I know someone is waiting... but will have to continue waiting a little longer.

I was going for 07/08/09 with Daisy, but that didn't work out. Trying to give your kids cool birthdays is much easier said than done. :)

I get that feeling all the time. I feel like there is one more out there. Dad on the other hand, is not so much feeling it. If it is meant to be, it will happen.

Adam felt that right before we had this little one that we have on the way!! I don't even feel pregnant half the time besides the nausea and everyonce in awhile I have my three boys around me and I am looking around for the baby. I think that is weird!!
