[name_m]Hi[/name_m] all! It’s nice to join in a little early and have a group of people looking forward to next year’s adventures. My partner and I will be trying for our second (and probably last) baby in the spring. Our firstborn turns three in [name_f]October[/name_f] - about six weeks away. I’d hoped to start trying sooner, but the past three years have thrown us some curveballs! I know I’ll get nervous as the winter winds down but right now the next six months stretch out in front of me like the view from a mountaintop.
We have quite the checklist for pre-TTC. Financial goals, fitness goals, toddler goals (let’s be done with diapers, eh, kiddo?), and some dreams that would be nice but are not must-do: we’d really like to take a long weekend just the two of us, leaving our little guy with his grands; we’ve been looking to buy a house for the past year but haven’t found one yet that tops our rental.
We’re not really collecting new baby stuff for Kid 2, but we do have several storage bins of hand-me-downs. It’d be just my luck if age gaps, body types, etc. make all those clothes not-quite-right, haha. There are a bunch of things I’d like to do differently the second time around, so we will be planning and shopping at some point pre-baby.
Nice to meet you all!
