Babies.

Well, the topic of having babies has once again come up in our house. After two, we were happy and done. After three, we were even more happy, and done. Our youngest will be two in December, and we are contemplating again. Is family planning really family planning? Should it be completely up to God, or should couples "intervene?" I'd love to hear your thoughts.
Also, if you haven't entered my giveaway, please do!

hhmm... well, first of all let me say that you are braver then me!! lol

i can't imagine even thinking baby thoughts when either of mine were two!

as for your question...

i think God gave us the knowledge and wherewithal to make some decisions, including planning our families. i think one of our main objectives here is to love. and if you have more love to go around, i think you should do what your heart tells you when it comes to creating your family. :)

thanks for visiting my blog!

Hmmmm...Robert and I have had many discussions on this subject. Basically we came to the conclusion that if God wants us to have children than we will....in His time. It took us over a year to get pregnant this time so who knows what will happen. That being said, I think that you have to make the decision that is right for your family based on much prayer. You have a beautiful family and another little one is always so much fun. :)

We are thinking about it too, but we only have Bella so this one would only be number 2 of us. You are a great mommy and have great kids.

This a topic that I've been thinking and praying about a lot lately... My heart has been changing a lot over the past year. Now to just get my DH's heart on the same page as God's and mine, lol! ;)

Oh just do it! Another Miller woooohooooo! Seriously though I agree with Erin if God intends for you to have another you will. I am such an example of that. No one was more shocked than I to find out Delaney#3 was on the way. Even with family planning God gave us another one, and the thought of a 4th is already being discussed. I think you will and I can't wait. Get a move on it Dawson needs a bestfriend,lol.

all i can say is if i weren't so old and dr shutts hadn't said no more, and now that sara kate is not the holy terror she was for the first year, we'd be having another one. ={ so i say go for it! you make SUCH PRETTY BABIES! Bless the world is my vote! =)

I just came over to your blog via Katie (Baby Factory). It's really funny you should ask this question -- my hubby and I were just discussing this earlier.

Sometimes I think we are kidding ourselves when we say birth "control" -- do we really presume to have a leg up on God here? I honestly can't say I've settled the issue in my mind, I go back and forth -- but it's something I'm praying about!

Anyway -- that's probably more information than you needed to know from me on my first visit here :) Love your blog and look forward to reading more!
