Writer's Workshop

This week I chose prompt #5 from Kat's List. The following list is my Top Ten Reasons (a la David Letterman) why hubby and I should start trying for another baby.

(Our little Noah James - 1 day old)


10. Because Summer's new baby is so adorable, she makes my ovaries hurt.
9. I could tell my mother it was her Christmas gift.
8. No periods and bigger boobs!
7. More Blog Fodder (just kidding....I think)
6. Pregnancy is a great cover-up for holiday weight gain.
5. So Noah will not have "Only Child" Syndrome.
4. To have a little girl. (Hurray for dress-up and Disney Princesses)
3. Baby making is fun!
2. Because I only have 2 more months left of Noah's babyhood (cry!)
1. I am insane.

...a little Disney Princess would be nice, but it can`t beat getting to play with trucks, bugs and things with a little guy :)

Oh I love that list and so understand. I hope that it works on hubby.

I've thought about getting pregnant for the sake of my blog. My husband was NOT down with that!

Diane said...

LOL... I love #1! You saved the best for last... well, first... whatever (you know what I mean... right?)

I love this list! I can agree with several of your points, but I'm single so the baby thing may not be a great idea for me right now. (Doesn't stop me from wanting one.) But I hope it works for you!

Gwen said...

You so make me want to have another one...um on second thoughts Ellie will survive being an only child. :) Great Top 10!!!

Lindsay said...

Thanks for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment, really - you made me smile.

And I may have to go do this little writing assignment too...however I think I'd be using the same reasons you have! Seriously. Here's to trying! :-)

Make sure you mention the bigger boobs to your husband and the baby making sex. what guy wouldn't be sold after that.

sound like good reasons to me!

She's so beautiful! And I feel the same when one of my friends has a baby/ The "I wanna be a mommy too" feelings rush in. Maybe someday :)

Shanda said...

Congrats on being Saucy!! Love this photo of your son! It makes my ovaries hurt and I already have 3!!

OOOoooh, wanna give little Noah a sib, huh? Go for it! When they're that close together, it's hard at first, but then really nice when they start to play together!

you forgot: Babies are AWESOME.

Bar-b said...

exactly. :)

insane indeed :) but too much fun. Second time for me was so much more enjoyable and we were so much more relaxed.

keep us posted (I am sure you will ;)

Mama's Losin' It said...

DO IT!!! Literally. Go make a baby right this instant. You guys are too pretty to not grace the world with AT LEAST one more baby...and soon.

You so make me want to have another one... Who the heck am I kidding, eight is enough!!!

Aleta said...

I laughed at the # 1 reason. You have a beautiful baby. My biological clock is tick tocking, but the doctors don't think we have a good chance to have a child. Count your blessings and best wishes to you!

Finding Normal said...

With that face, how can you NOT make another one? I swear, those newborn faces make my eggs zip all around in circles.

Stacey Muir said...
