{A Few Things About Having 2 Kiddos}


Do they really make babies that are calm and chill? Is there such a thing? I guess I'll never know lol.

How do people get anything done? At all.

Is chipotle drive thru still not a thing?

And when is Starbucks going to start that whole delivery thing?

Is it possible to forget every little thing from the first newborn stage?

Are they supposed to breathe like that? When do they stop sleeping on *just* you? Are all newborn fingernails as sharp as kitten claws? Are their eyes supposed to cross like that?

Thank the lord for helpful toddler siblings.

Does anyone else feel bad constantly asking your older child to quiet down or to help out? Ohhhh, that's just me? #oops

Was I really ever busy before baby #2?

Baby #2 is completely on her own level and different in every way, so everything I learned with baby #1 is out the dang window.

I still need my girlfriends, the outdoors and a strong cup of coffee just as much as I did the first time around.

If you're like me, you'll have to learn to think before you speak. Still learning this one. Thank goodness Henry and Sean are very forgiving. :-D

Things are still tough, but you're more resilient. The days can seem long, but not like the first time around. You're typically too busy to notice.

It's all about balance. Some days we'll sit at home all day and my older child will spend way too much time on the iPad or playing alone with his toys. Other days we will meet our friends for a long day at the park and lunch. We don't always have to be on the go, and we don't always have to be afraid to leave the house and mess up our nap and feeding schedule.

Is it possible that I raised my older child to be the sweetest, most loving older brother ever?

And the best part? Double the snuggles. Your heart just expands and doubles in size. <3
