A Good Compliment

My husband doesn't understand my want and need to have a third child so quickly.  Sevrie and Coral are 27 months apart and I think it's the perfect age gap.  They play SO well together and it just keeps getting the better the older Coral gets (though I know this may change as they get hormonal and all). But right know it's working perfectly for us. 

At the gym today, I got a great compliment.  The lady in charge said that Coral really loves her sister.  Every time I pick the girls up, Coral is wherever Sevrie is.  Numerous times I've caught them holding hands while sitting next to eachother, Coral sitting on Sevrie's lap, and playing on the slide together. Oh ya, and don't even think about messing with Coral when Sevrie is around.  She won't let you get away with it.  She'll just simply tell on you.

This is what I try to tell Aaron.  I want our third child have the same age difference, give or take a few months. I want our third child to get along with Coral just as well as Coral gets a long with Sevrie.  Yes, I'm sure it has some to do with personality (and parenting-heheh) but I also think it has alot to do with age.  

I don't know, I guess I just love having babies and I'm using any excuse to convince Aaron to try for another.

I know what you mean. After Kendall was born I kept trying to make Dave understand why I want to get pregnant at a certain time because I wanted my kids to be close in age. Well, 2-3 years. He kept dawdling and saying he wasn't ready, are they ever ready?, and I kept feeling like the right time was getting away from us. Gage is our last but if I thought I could handle more I would want them to be closer in age than Kendall and Gage are. They're 3 years and two months and if we waited that long again Kendall would be SO much older than the next child that I'd be afraid they wouldn't be close friends until they were adults. I don't want that. I want them to be best friends.
