No Babies - Yet!

Kaish found that bassinet in the garage.
He brought it inside and said he wanted a baby sister or brother to put in it.
Now if you know me, then you know, I am not the one that needs to be convinced!

I thought if we left it in the living room it might inspire (or motivate) Gary...

For now, we will just have to keep loving Baby Sofia!

On a funny note, we sent our Christmas card out this year, and Gary's Best Friend in Florida congratulated us on our baby.....

I was a little surprised.
I told Gary I thought it was odd that he thought the baby was ours as we had never mentioned being pregnant, AND, is it just me, or does Baby Katelyn look all white to you?
Yeah, that's what I thought.

Does anyone out there in blog land have any good ideas of how I could interest Gary in a baby? He keeps mentioning money.

I mean, seriously, who EVER has enough money for a baby.

I am off to bed and just checked my email and saw your comment. Thanks for stopping by. It is called P90X. Yes, it's hard but I love it...never done anything like it before.

I'll be back soon to browse around your blog. Have a great night!

Ha, ha! Loved your answer to Wordless Wed on Tues.
Facebook makes me laugh and I am bound and determined not to let it take up the rest of my free time. :)

No ideas on the baby end, but I do have three friends who got pregnant with their 3rd child even after their husbands said they didn't think they wanted any more. I'll ask them!

Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a note. The picture is of my grandson and we think he is yummy! Blessings.

Oh, Rebeckah...I can hear your heart aching for another little someone to love! I REALLY hope things pan out for you as you wish! Now, as far as how you convince Gary...I haven't a clue! It's been 12 years since I traveled that poor ovaries are probably all dried up and blown away by now! lol

You could say~"oh honey plez~if you love me"~~~think that will work?

I doubt it.

That picture is so sweet! He will be such a great big brother!
I really like your Christmas card too.
As far as convincing your husband to have another baby? And you are right, there is never enough money for a baby but somehow we make it work. I say, talk to him about the desires of your heart and pray about it. Good luck with this!

Mom on the Run said...

I don't really have any ideas, but when I desperately wanted our third I did bring in to the conversation any and all sacrifices I had made for my husband. I dredged and dredged. If you think hard I'll bet there are things you do for your husband that he may not have any idea about.

I agree with Grandma J as well. She is very wise!

Busy Bee Suz said...

Oh, this made me laugh so hard.
I have a few things to say about this.....When Lo was a toddler, I vowed that she would be the ONLY one because she drove me crazy. My MIL said to me plain as day: "How do you like being an only child?"
(since my Brother passed away)
And it is true....I did not like it and I wish my Mom had more kids now.
Tell that to Gary....does he have siblings? It is not fun being the only one....especially now, When my Mom has issues or can't take care of herself it is on ONE child...ME. :)
On the money one ever has the money for a baby...but don't let Gary know this part...babies don't cost that much....TEENAGERS DO!!!
you have that to look forward to.

kck said...

Tell Gary, if he worries about money, you will never have a baby! Besides. Babies aren't that exspensive in the beginning unless you buy them a million designer outfits! Kasey :)

SassyMomma said...

AWWW!!! I don't know how you can convince him... I'm still trying to convince mine that we need to try one more time for a girl. That's NOT working for me either! LOL! I do hope you can change his mind though.

The thing about the Christmas card is just to darn funny!!!

I know a girl that got pregnant after her husband said "no more" by getting in vitro with their frozen embreyos (sp?). Now they have triplets. I don't think their marriage is going to make it so I wouldn't recommend this route!!

I don't think the bassinet will make the difference. :) Before my son was born, we tried for several years to no avail. We had been saving for another child. We finally gave up and spent the money sodding our yard and landscaping. Within two months my wife was pregnant.

It's true no one every has enough money for a new life.
I'd ask Gary if 15 years from now, he would regret not having had another child. And then really discuss this. Good luck!

big hair envy said...

I can't stop laughing at the picture of Kaish in the bassinette!! Bwahaha!

I wish I had a suggestion for you, but I am the mother of only one:)

Do what Grandma J says!

Live.Love.Eat said...

I love your Christmas card. Very nice!!!!!!! Hmmm, not sure on the baby thing either. We're done at 1. Sorry.

Ragan said...

Hmmm, does a guy really need to know that you're trying for a baby??? Or would you adopt? I guess if you're going to adopt he'd kind of have to know.....

JUST KIDDING!.... Or am I? ;) Don't tell your husband (or mine) that I said that!

In the mean time, just enjoy Kaish, which I know you do.

Jules from "The Roost" said...

You sneaky thing you! Pray that God will change one of your hearts.......especially Gary's ;)

Katie said...

Ahh!! that is funny about your Christmas card. Men naturally worry about money. It all works out though we find a way. God does provide. I think you should really pray for God to soften his heart. The first time he holds his baby it will be a different story and he will get it. Men are just a little more nervous taking the jump. Can't wait to hear about all of this. Thanks for all your sweet comments you are the bright spot in my day!

Alicia said...

Oh, that was hilarious!!!!!!!!!! Well, you know, some people just are clueless, or they just assume!! Haha!!

Cute card!

And to convince your hubby????? I dunno??? LOL

Kristen@nosmallthing said...

Ideas...well, I guess I don't have any, but I'll tell you how I got my fourth.

Obviously, we had 3 children. I got pregnant unexpectedly with a 4th, and lost the baby. Devastated. I wanted to try again for a 4th. My husband did not. He was concerned with $, with time. I was heartbroken, angry, lost for a while. Then our youngest at the time was diagnosed with a hearing impairment. It became clear that having another baby would be too difficult when we were traveling to doctors for tests, and having therapy 4 days a week, plus the time I put into instruct our boy daily. So I gave up on the fourth. I accepted it, truthfully, and was content with my three.

Then, I gave away all of the baby stuff. I still remember sitting there, holding up the little outfits, and pressing them into my face, smelling the baby smell, and sighing as I put them in the cardboard box. Less than one month later, I was pregnant. :) I've heard people say it happens, but I couldn't believe it happened to me.

The prayers come in our time, the answers, in God's time. Talk to your husband, and pray with him. Good luck!

Money? Oh my..... money is a HORRIBLE not to have a baby!! You COULD do what I did and just go off the pill and tell your husband 2 weeks later (although I DON'T recommend this route.... ) :-)

Really, babies are a blessing. Tell Gary to read what it says about "chilren" in Proverbs. It talks about what a BLESSING children are to their parents.... again and again and again.
The financial "piece" of it will work itself out!

Joe was on a five year plan when we got married. He was determined that no matter what, a baby would not enter our lives until we were married five years. He had the same concern as Gary However, we had moved from Michigan to Virgina and my birth control ran out, you know it takes forever to get into a new doctor. We were only married six months and I was pregnant. I was not sure how he would feel about it. Much to my surprise he was thrilled!! We ended up having a miscarriage but the five year plan was thrown out the window. He wanted a baby! Can you birth control run out? Just wondering....:-) )
Praying for you.

Brandi said...

How funny!

My mom always told me that if everyone waited until they had enough money for a baby they would never have one!

Pray about it and ask God to work on his heart about it - if it is God's will.
