It astounds me that so many people ask newly married young adults when they are having kids.
It really hit me though when someone from church asked us right after our honeymoon, and Caleb and I each had different answers.
Wowza. That was awkward.

We've since then had many serious conversations about this. It also seems that God is tempting us with all these newborns at church, babysitting our favorite little gal up there, and all these adorable baby link ups that everyone and their sisters partake in on the blog world.
One thing is for sure. Caleb and I want kids, very, very badly. But, if we have anything to do with it, we want a few years to ourselves, just the two of us, to enjoy before we have to devote time to another human being besides each other. I often get what we like to call "baby fever", but have to step back and remember...we both have so much time. I'm only 22 years old, Caleb only 25. We are just starting our lives together, and have plenty of time to make those bigger decisions down the road.
For now, I'm happy without changing diapers, sleepless nights, and my bank account being drained on account of the adorable baby clothes at Target down the road.
One thing is for sure though, if we are blessed enough to have our own children, those babies will be so loved. I get so happy just with the thought of my Caleb becoming a daddy! I mean, look at him up there. As cheesy as it is, it almost brings me to tears when I see how amazing he is with children. I remember when we first started dating... my aunt told me I was never allowed to break up with him, because my young cousins would never forgive me. It cracks me up looking back, and I guess I never realized how blessed I am to have such an amazing husband that I know our children will look up too like crazy.
I just hope I can be as good of a momma as he will be a father! That's a scary thought!
How do you current momma's out there do it!? You all amaze me. Am I the only one terrified to be a momma one day!?
