I've always wanted my kids to be close in age. I remember growing up with my twin sisters who were only 15 months younger then me and we were like best friends growing up. I would love for my children to have those kind of fun relationships with each other.
Leon and I started talking about starting to expand our family when Evelynne was about seven months. We both agreed that we would be more comfortable with starting that process after Evelynne turned one.
November 25th came and went but neither one of us felt completely comfortable until around that February. Leon and I both felt led to start praying for our second baby. And soon after April we found out we were expecting. Our girls will be almost exactly two years apart and I think that's a great age gap for our family.
Deciding when the time is right to bring another baby into the world can be a hard decision. There are so many questions you have to ask yourself as a family. I think the biggest question for us was as a married couple were we ready for another child and was Evelynne ready to have a little sibling. And we really believe Evelynne would so love to have a little friend.
Leon and I also believe in Prayer. And how important it is to pray about things we're thinking about. And doing that we eventually felt a great peace about getting pregnant again. We know with God all of our needs will be provided with this little one.
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. -Philippians 4:6
