I can't say for sure whether we're done having children. We are trying to be good Catholics and maintain some openness toward it. Well, Tim is always open to the idea. He's ready when I am since he understands that I am the one who has to suffer. So the question of whether another baby is in our future will have to wait. We're moving next summer to who knows where, so we'll be wanting to avoid having a baby then, that's for sure. But if we're going to have another I can't put it off forever as I'm not getting any younger. Today I turn 34. For now, I am happy to keep my focus on Timmy as the baby because he is at this adorable stage of asserting his independence but at the same time needing me so much still. I am filled with wonder and joy as I watch him grow and change into a little boy, and so glad to have my lap and arms still open for when he comes running to me.
