Who Did You Consider First When Deciding on Another Child?

Many women have a magic number — how many children they hope to have. Age, health, finances, and ambitions are just a few of the realities that can influence a couple's decision to either keep procreating or be content with the family they have. Some mothers know the benefits of giving their child siblings, but others prefer to focus their attention on one offspring. How did you come to (or will you make) your decision?

My husband and I are talking about having another child and our son is 14 months now. Everyone has something to say abotu the age of the child when the second is born, but since we know he will react a different way at any age, we are trying to consider ourselves and when we will be ready to have 2 children.
