My husband wants to try for baby#2 in May when DD1 will only be 18 months old. I'm slightly freaked out! Not sure if I'm ready for a 2nd baby when I'm just getting used to DD1... My husband said he wants to have our kids close together so that he can get a vasectomy. ugh...

Can this be made a sticky? I think it would be good to keep this easily accessible!

This was such a sweet message. I am making that transition soon, and my heart aches for the lost time of the days of just me and my girl.

Just went from one to two three weeks ago. The stress makes me want to pack my bags and drive far far away. I needed this.

Thank-you!

Baby #2 is overseas with my husband as we just adopted her and they can't come home till they get a Visa.

AND
I'm scared. I shared my feelings about parenting 2 kids with my mother but she didn't it and just said..."it's normal...everybody does it"

Well I am feeling scared. I am lucky to have my husband home till December but after that......how will I manage to respond to them both in a timely manner?

Thank you so much for this!! DD2 is now 9 months, but I feel that we are still transitioning. It has been very hard, especially with only 18 months between DD1 and DD2!

I think of the first 6 weeks when my colicky dd2 was sleeping the whole day and crying the whole night :. I was rocking her through the house, whispering a song, hoping she will not wake up dd1 and dh and all this time saying to myself: this too shall pass!

It would've been useful to read this post 4 months ago and be more prepared for my dd1 reactions... but I still need it today.

How can I make it easier for the first-born to share the attention with her little sis?!
