    Hey, I totally agree with you that it is your choice. I stopped at 2 and I’m happy with that.

    You have to do what you feel is best for your family. No matter what opinions have. That being said, I have only 1 and I too am 37. In my opinion 😉 one is just fine!! He is 11 and well adjusted and unspoiled. He is a kind hearted and sweet boy who had no issues being an only child.

    We get this question all the time as well. My husband and I were not even sure we were going to have kids and now that we have one people insist on us having more(and our daughter is only 5months old!!). It is all about what is best for your family and I appreciate this honesty?

    Wow, thanks for writing this. I have been dealing (struggling) with secondary infertility for four years. I thankfully have one beautiful daughter. I can barely stand the questions about our “not growing” family. I looked at your blog this morning and instantly felt comforted reading about your confident and content decision. Seems as if every single blog I begin to follow, turns into a child rearing saga, enabling my sorrow to be revisited with each and every blog entry I read by these women who promise fashion and fitness, etc. Thanks for lifting me up and making my days better each time I read your blog! You are in inspiration to all!

    Congrats on your decision! It’s not an easy one to make I am sure. Having recently gone through my second miscarriage trying for baby #2 I totally get how you are feeling! So yay to your family of 3!

    I applause you for saying how it is and not sugar coating if for your family and friends. People have no filters now a days and can it quite annoying at times ;0)
    I was married for 11 years before I got pregnant with my son and man, I had heard it all before I announced the pregnancy. Then it went to “wow we didn’t think you even wanted kids…… again no filter. All I would say is that God had a plan and this is what he has chosen for my hubby and I and that we’re blessed to have a child. what Matter was/is that my hubby and I wanted a family and the rest is history and none of their concern.
    Its not an easy decision but “Its what you and your spouse want” and people need to respect that. You and your hubby are blessed with Cooper and that’s all that matters. Congrats on your decision and enjoy your adventures to come =0)

    I am kind of teary reading this. I too have one son. I was 37 when I had him. I feel SO blessed that is was easy and he is healthy. By, the time I felt even ready to think about number 2 I was over 40 and my husband over 50. I just felt that I had been really blessed already and pregnancy over 40 can be difficult, impossible, and risky. I had a difficult birth and C-Section already. I too decided on only one child. It is amazing how many people will NOT quit until you tell them WHY you aren’t having more. Like I need to open a very personal and thoughtful decision up to the world like I owe them an explantation. My son is VERY happy and seemingly well adjusted and had issues too, just like all the kids I know regardless of the number if siblings. I wish the world would just let everyone live their lives their way. If you are living in with love why does it matter so much? Cheers to yours and everyone else who has a happy family!
