Anniversaries and the Kid Count

Thursday will be the 21st anniversary of my marriage to Teresa. As I was thinking about that this morning, (as in “What shall we do?”) I got to thinking about our years-to-kids ratio. For the first few years of our marriage, our anniversary number and the number of kids were pretty close. It took us seven years of marriage before the number of years were larger than the number of kids. Not many couples can make that claim (or want to, I suppose).

Here’s the progress:

1984, wedding day = 2 kids (Adam and Jessica, whom I adopted soon after)
1985, 1 year = 3 kids (Amanda, born in September)
1986, 2 years = 4 kids (Mackenzie, born 2 days before our anniversary)
1987, 3 years = 4 kids
1988, 4 years = 5 kids (Brianna, born in May)
1989, 5 years = 5 kids
1990, 6 years = 6 kids (Josh, born in August)
1991, 7 years = 6 kids
1992, 8 years = 7 kids (Meghan, born in August)
1993, 9 years = 7 kids
1994, 10 years = 8 kids (Michaela, born in September)
1995, 11 years = 8 kids
1996, 12 years = 8 kids
1997, 13 years = 9 kids (Liberty, born in May)
1998, 14 years and on = 9 kids
