The Second Time Around

This time I really DO know how fast the tiny baby phase goes by.
This time I'm less focused on how little sleep I'm getting and more focused on enjoying those quiet night time hours of snuggling.
This time I know that in the blink of an eye these tiny little fingers will be big and have dirt under the nails (no matter how often I wash them!).
The second time around is different because you are already a mom. You are used to not coming first any more, used to thinking of a shower as a luxury, used to spending your days playing trains and singing Raffi songs...
And while I know that having two kids will be a challenge, I'm really enjoying myself the second time around.

Thank you so much. This is giving me courage to try for the second one. We've just been so afraid to (but really want a sibling for or son). Thank you.

Love, love the picture!

It is sweeter the second time around. You're more relaxed, I think. (I'm preparing for the third time around, tho, and I'm so very nervous. Just because it's been a while...will I forget what to do??)
