So, if you read any of my previous posts, you know that Joe and I bought a house a while ago (it actually seems like an eternity ago!). Well, this week it becomes REAL! This week, we sign our lives away and actually become homeowners. I feel like this is just the next step in our lives together. Our lives are beginning to feel real. Don't get me wrong, I totally have felt married, and happy for the past year of my life, but we lived together before we were married (I know, I know, don't judge me!) and so when we got back from our honeymoon and back to reality, things didn't necessarily change. That was a good thing! Now, we are having serious conversations such as... children, where we want our kids to go to school, etc.

I recently got together with a friend from high school and we were talking. I told her that Joe brought up the "having children" conversation (it wasn't a total surprise, we have talked about it before) and I freaked out. Like I said before, it's becoming real. Within the next year we are thinking about trying to start a family. This means... no more sleeping in (or sleeping at all for that matter), no more running errands together just to spend time together, no more having extra money to spend on US, etc. Those of you who have your own children know the drill... LOL.

Anyway, I could use some help talking me down off the ledge right now because I am totally nervous and scared. We aren't even trying to have a child yet, but it is truly all I think about lately. I NEED SOME HELPFUL WORDS HERE! LOL

You're totally right! What an exciting time of your life!

Wish I had some more encouraging words, but I haven't even been there myself! Here's what I do have: Just take it one day at a time! One day at a time!

As a Mom of 2 that has been peed on, bled on and had a kid hit her head on cement today....I wouldn't trade a minute of this time for anything!

I had my first at 35 years old. I wish I had had the kids sooner. I feel like my life REALLY began the day they were born. I love my husband but I i love the family that we have created and cherish each day that I get with them.

I wish I had some sort of sound advice to give on this one.. but.. I had Kohen when I was 20.. got a dog.. then moved out of my parents.. got pregnant with my second.. got married.. had my 3rd child and still haven't bought a house. LoL. so I guess my point is, wherever life takes you, you go. You will never be 100% ready to have a child. but it is a COMPLETE blessing.. a lot of work, but definately worth it.. just think.. you can have your husband.. your new house.. and your new baby.. and live happily ever after! : )
