New baby?

It looks like there will be at least one more baby added to our family.

No, I'm not pregnant.

Chris was told two days ago that he will be going to Iraq for a year starting in January. He may get to come home for a few days in March between training and leaving the country, but he will be gone the majority of 2008. He left for a deployment when Maddie was 11 months old, and now he will be leaving when Emily is 10 months old. He will miss that wonderful 12-18 months old stage in both of our girls.

We have already been discussing the possibility of having another child in a few years. We are young, and aren't sure we are ready to give up our childbearing years quite so soon. Besides, I feel strongly that there is one more little girl waiting to join our family. This has just probably sealed the deal, provided we can have another, never a sure thing with our history.

Hopefully the next time, he will be home for her whole babyhood.

I've been meaning to send you a note since seeing your status message about Chris being gone for a year. :-( That so sucks! If you are planning to stay in WI during that time we will definetly have to plan some time together.

And I do hope in the right time that you are indeed blessed with another little girl. :-)

Every once in awhile I wonder what it would be like to have a boy(s), but mostly I just can't imagine life without my girls.
