Need some advice ladies!!!

So me and my bf have had been dating for awhile and I want to try and have a kid next year. Idk how to bring it up. I have asked if he wants kids and he said yes. He has a great job a place to live and a vehicle. I have a job and I'm getting a vehicle so I think since we both kinda have our lives together it will be a good time. 
What do u ladies think?? 
Need as much advice as possible. Thank you!!
