How Motherhood Progresses as the Family Increases



Your Clothes
1st baby: You begin wearing maternity clothes as soon as your OB-GYN confirms your pregnancy. 2nd baby: You wear your regular clothes for as long as possible. 3rd baby: Your regular clothes ARE your maternity clothes.
The Baby's Name
1st baby: You pore over baby name books and practice pronouncing and writing combinations of all your favorites. 2nd baby: Someone has to name their kid after great-aunt Mavis, right? It might as well be you. 3rd baby: You open a name book, close your eyes, and see where your finger falls. Bimaldo? Sounds good to me!
Preparing for birth
1st baby: You practice your breathing regularly. 2nd baby: You don't bother practicing because you remember that last time, breathing didn't do a thing. 3rd baby: You ask for an epidural in the 8th month.
Clothing
1st baby: You prewash your newborn's clothes, color-coordinate them and fold them neatly in the baby's little bureau. 2nd baby: You check to make sure the clothes are clean and discard only those with the darkest stains. 3rd baby: Boys can wear pink, can't they??
Worries
1st baby: At the first sign of distress--a whimper, a frown--you pick up the baby. 2nd baby: You pick up the baby when her wails threaten to wake your firstborn. 3rd baby: You teach your 3 yr old how to rewind the mechanical swing.
Activities
1st baby: You take your infant to Baby Gymnastics, Baby Swim and Baby Story Hour. 2nd baby: Your take your infant to Baby Gymnastics. 3rd baby: You take your infant to the supermarket and the dry cleaners.
Going Out
1st baby: The first time you leave your baby with a sitter, you call home five times. 2nd baby: Just before you walk out the door, you remember to leave number where you can be reached. 3rd baby: You leave instructions for the sitter to call only if she sees blood.
At Home
1st baby You spend a good bit of every day just gazing at the baby. 2nd baby You spend a bit of every day watching to be sure your older child isn't squeezing, poking or hitting the baby. 3rd baby You spend a little bit of every day hiding from the children.

Funny, but oh so true. A lot of those (especially the hiding from the kids) also applies to 4th babies LOL!
