It's not that bad, once you're living it. Ok, some days it's just down right awful and other days are amazing. It's life. Would I give up any of my 3 darlings? Not for one moment....well, maybe if it was just one moment on certain days.

Living life outnumbered is just a new reality and when they're all young, it is chaos. With the terrible 3's, a 5year old going on 17, and a 1 year old, my house could never be big enough for me. Then there's times when they all snuggle up together and are wonderful.

See, I think that going from 1 to 2 kids was much harder than any other adjustment, even from 0 to 1.

Give yourself time. Don't think you have to do it all perfectly, just do the best you can!

I know I technically went from 2-3 and don't have the experience of ever going from 0-1 or 1-2 seeing as how I am a twin mama. However, I will say that adding Miles into our lives had its ups and downs. Since my twins are so much older I was like a new mom in a lot of ways, especially since I did several things differently this time around. He is also a craptastic sleeper compared to my girls and I was SO not prepared to be sleep deprived for 12+ months and counting when, my first time around, I had two babies who both STTN very early. But that's not something I could've planned for or changed. Anyway, what I'm trying to say is that somethings will be more difficult - the logistics of getting out of the house to go anywhere, dividing your attention when they both want it, etc - but other things will be easier. Since you just had #1 not too long ago all of that new mom knowledge and experience is still fresh in your brain so that helps a lot, I'd imagine. Again, that 8 year gap really sucked *** for me, LOL.
