OOOH! An EXCUSE to buy that Yukon XL or Acadia you always wanted!

Congratulations. I know my kids are the one ray of happiness I can count on daily...I wish you both the best.

Oh, and it is now time to find that father/child project car...fyi!

Thanks everyone!! The wife has been wanting another child, has been ever since about three years ago (my little guy is now 4). Finances are never going to be enough, so that's not really a concern (well it is, but hopefully you know what I mean). She "tried" to get pregnant in August & September, followed her websites and calculated the best days to get pregnant and all; but NOTHING. Figures that when you don't do that stuff and let nature take it's course things will work out. We were not planning to get pregnant, but didn't mind if God allowed it to happen. So far she has been a "boy producer" - Anthony ( 15 y-o, my step-son) and Justin (my 4 y-o). So what's your guess - another boy or will the trend be broken with a girl?

Yeah, about the vehicles. The G6 is fine for us now, but a big stroller will be a PITA to get in the trunk (well, my 4 y-o's wouldn't fit), and then try squeezing a baby, toddler, teenager & two adults in. While she's finally warmed-up to the Cadillac, she's now more concerned about a more appropriate "family hauler" (i.e., a minivan or large crossover). So I told her we'll deal with the Caddy for now and try to save some $$$ during the winter & spring months and then maybe we can cash in on a great July 4th (2010) summer deal. Too bad GM doesn't make a minivan, it looks like I'd be a perfect target market for one.

Congrads.

Well, of course, since you have the X and the Y, its actually your decision, not hers. I hope you concentrated.

Even with a busload of children, I would rather have a secondhand limo than a minivan. ;-) Or a hearse. Actually, the GF might be into driving a hearse... I'll have to ask her. ;-)

Shhhh. . . I'm going to let you in on a secret! The lambdas are really Minivans, but have the ability to appear as expensive SUVs. :smilewide:

I see a CPO Acadia or Enclave in your future

Yikes: 3 !

You are a man among men, IMO.

I always said '2 kids is really like having 3'... my buddy has 3 and to my eye/ear it seems like 5.

2 was enough for me; I built a 3-bedroom house as a sort of mental birth control to boot. :lol:

Good luck to you & your new, to-be-larger family !

Expensive is right! You can't touch a decently equiiped one for under $35k. If it wasn't for the taller ride height and traditonal rear passenger doors, these could almost pass for a minivan.

I really like the new 2010 GMC Terrain, but not sure how well it would accomodate the family comfortably and the storage space needed. As such, a Lambda would definitely come in handy!!

Thanks again for all the congrats. Wife went to the doctor yesterday and she did a blood test. She also scheduled a visit to her OB/GYN in early December (I thought that was late, but according to her that's the earliest they see you in your pregnancy).
