I had people tell me that life with two kids would be hard, just wait and see. While it's only been a month I have to say it's 100% easier than the first time I brought a baby home. The age gap is probably the biggest factor in that, Twilight Sparkle is the biggest lil helper you ever did meet.
Except for diapers, can't blame her for ducking and hiding after getting pee'd on :)
She's the perfect age for 'can you go grab Mommy's nursing pillow' or 'Can you find Aiden's binky?'
and this,well, this is priceless when you are in a hurry and the baby is hungry.
There have been a few bumps in this road. Madison is now to the age where she get's 'soooooo bored' and wants someone to entertain her. She's over the iPad, her movies, and her toys. I try to keep her as busy as I can, I DO have a newborn who needs constant supervision, but my heart breaks when she begs to go for a walk, I hate letting her down. I know that's crazy, but I have a bit of lingering Mommy guilt.
Overall I would say she hasn't shown any jealousy towards Aiden, but between me being home and my parents moving in the down the street she's not lacking for attention. Somehow in the last month she went from still being a toddler in our eyes to being a kid. Like a real mini human. It's sad to see my baby girl growing up, but she's becoming one awesome little lady.
Not everyone adjusted so quickly.
I suspect I will be getting a lot of these kind of messages. Just like women bear the pain of pregnancy and childbirth, we must also bear the whining of husbands who lose an hour or two of sleep.
