Did you find that going from 2-3 was harder than 1-2? Everyone says that once you have 2, going to 3 is easy. Well for me, they LIED! I think it was MUCH harder to go from 2-3 than 1-2. Or maybe fore me it's because when I went from 1-2 Kayla was already 8. When I went from 2-3, Emily was only 2.
I feel out numbered and stretched thin with making myself available to all.
LMAO When I posted that I thought, Poor Mads has to go from 1-3!!! I can't imagine how that will be, well I can but then I get dizzy. LMAO I think in a few years, it'll be amazing for you but the first couple, I wish you lots and lots of luck.
Emily does GREAT with Abby. She loves her to pieces, she asks where she is if she's in another room, she wants to help feed and loves to get stuff for me that Abby needs. She's ALWAYS giving her toys and putting her bink in her mouth. She's an awesome big sister!!
It's just so different with 3. I only have TWO hands. LOL To go anywhere it takes 2 hours to get ready, I feel like just going to my Moms I pack half the house.
I agree with Jessica, my two are older so it hasn't really been a huge chance. I guess the big smack in the face for me is getting back into the erratic schedule of a baby. I was so used to my nice schedule... lol
And here I am considering #4....... I need mental help. lmao
yeah 2-3 was definitely harder because not only did i have a newborn but i also had a 4 year old and an (almost) 2 year old. I just remember everytime i'd breastfeed Emely, madisyn would throw herself on the floor screaming.
On the other hand going from 3-4 was a breeze. But then again my other 3 were 10, 8, & 6. It is so nice having older kids with a baby!

Going from 1-2 wasn't bad because Derrick was almost 10 at the time. I think it was then that dh and I talked about having #3 once Xavier was in preschool. I have to admit after Xavier I wasn't sure i was going to have any more kids. Xavier was such a high need baby. To this day he is a ball of energy and always on the go.
When we decided that we did want three(we wanted a girl) that once I was done with school we would TTC. Then dh got orders to Italy and school was out of the near future.
Going from 2-3 has been pretty easy. I've got a pretty good baby(not that any babies are bad)...I guess I should say compared to Xavier at this age she is very LOW need....
I doubt we will have anymore but if the topic comes up we will wait again until Peyton is in preschool...
Going from 2-3 is sooo much harder especially when ur 2 and 3 are boys!!! lol
now I have gone 3-4 and a grandchild so actually I guess its 4-5....oh goodness pray for me! lmao!!!

OMG ITA going from 1 to 2 was CAKE compared to going from 2 to 3, this may sound terrible but I actually have moments where I wish we only had two still. It is hard, it may be because they are all about 2 years apart...
it used to be "you take one ill take the other" now its "you take the boys, Ill take the baby" or the opposite. I hate being out numbered now. it also doesnt help my Collin still doesnt talk so I never really know how he is feeling really..
Anyway, i totally agree going from 1-2 is 100x easier than going from 2-3

I found it extremely hard going from a 2-3. Maybe because both boys are doing things for themselves and completely potty trained and then I go back to square one. Now the older two feed and then an hour later William feeds. But now Owen has gone back to "Mommy dress me, I can't do it"
