  1. I say go for it! Number 4 is on the way for us, and we wouldn't change a thing! It's not bad to take it one at a time! It's not like you're going to be expecting quintuplets soon to make up the rest of that number 7. :) Even if you were, you guys would do awesome!

    • Thanks, Ailene! We're definitely ready for #3 when the time comes. I just wanted to write out my thoughts about why we like a large family. Congrats on #4!!

  2. Oh, Love! You brought tears to my eyes, too! I hadn't thought of it like that before, but you're right. We don't want to leave anyone out! Thanks for writing this. :) I love you!

  3. I love people's reaction when they ask if we are done and I say no, two is just a good start. Jill and I dont have number except for a minimum. We have an idea of age when we want to be done having kids but that is totally up for change if we feel we ought to have more once that time comes. Ive never checked the stat but it sounds true that the whole population of the world could fit in texas with about the same population density as new york city. The earth can provide if it were not for the greed of man.

  4. You guys are amazing parents! I can't think of anyone who is better suited to raising a large family than you guys. That said, we're done at 4. I wish I could handle more but mentally I'm already on thin ice. I'm totally cheering you guys on though! (And one of these days I'm actually going to get to meet your kids by golly!)

    • Thanks for what you said! I think you guys are amazing parents, too! Your kids are fantastic and you and Jason are wonderful people. We can't wait for you guys to meet our kids.

      And I think it's great that you know what you can handle and are content with that. There's no reason to arbitrarily set a number, in my opinion.

  5. Hey there! We were both at the virtual Mormon.Org conference, so I was just stopping by to say hello.

    I think 7 is A LOT of kids. But to each his own. :)

    • Thanks, Natalie! That was an exciting conference, huh?

      I agree, 7 is A LOT of kids. Heidi and I just hope that'll be a good thing, if we get there. :)
