You ladies are not helping my desire to have 3! We want one more so badly, but yeah, doesn't sound all that fun! Boooo!
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.

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.
