A few weeks before I had my second baby I started getting really nervous. Bammer was really needy with her teething and just being a toddler. I spent my day taking care of her almost every minute she was awake. How was I going to take care of this active toddler and a newborn at the same time?
I felt like I might just die. Then my second little girl was born.
After a week of craziness with a birthday, holiday, and my toddler having hand foot and mouth disease, I finally found myself alone, at my apartment, with my two girls. Alright, here we go. Amazingly, I found that it wasn’t as scary or quite as hard as I thought it would be.
I’m getting out of the house and I did it quickly. After just two weeks I was going to the park and running errands. It did help that I was feeling really good and the weather allowed us to be outside. But it was good for all of us to get some fresh air and spend some time doing something.
The Bammer had a little bit of a hard time sharing time with her new sister. She’s been so much better and just loves her sister to death! Sure she may hug a little too hard and sometimes her kisses turn to bites, but first thing in the morning, she wants to see the baby. It’s so sweet and she’s learning to be softer. Even just being by her baby sister helps her calm down when she’s upset.
To me, it feels right to have these two little girls. I find that I have been able to take care of both. And I think that not being able to give my toddler undivided attention all the time is helping her be more independent. She’s starting to play on her own now and I’m loving that!
I love having two kids and I’m excited to have more! We’re hoping to wait a little longer this time, but I can’t wait for our family to keep growing!
