One year ago today, about a month and a half after my tubal reversal, and about five days after Jarrod’s vasectomy reversal, Felix was conceived, but we didn’t know for about another two weeks. What a difference a year can make!
Today marks the day we have decided to do it one more time. We want Felix to have a sibling close in age to grow up with. While he had colic I was dead-set against having any more babies. And selfishly, I didn’t want to have more babies because I wanted to do my own thing and be able to have more quality alone-time with my husband. however, even though Felix has 6 much older siblings, he will be growing up in an only-child type lifestyle. I grew up an only child until I was nearly 16 years old, so I know how boring it can be. So to be fair and kind to Felix, we’re giving him a baby brother or sister. No rush, just whenever it happens, it happens. After that, we’re getting permanent/surgical birth control once again.
We can’t wait to see him and another baby grow up having each other. This will be challenging, but so rewarding and so much fun!
