The way Annabelle has taken to Rose has definitely been the easiest. I was afraid there would be some jealousy but there doesn't seem to be.

The hardest is going to be letting my baby out of my sight for a day while she goes to her father's. I will probably have a panic attack or two.

The hardest part for me is his inability to nurse
The easiest.. how easily the children picked up the slack in our daily routine, now that I have to feed him and pump during it (getting ready for school ect).

The hardest part has been my DH and DD's slow (but coming around) adjustment. My 2 year old is having a very hard time, but getting better with a few minor adjustments. Trying to keep her routine has been key.

The easiest part is the baby! She's a great nurser and sleeper. Completely different from my first and a blessing since my 2 year old obviously needs mommy more than originally thought.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my amazing siggy!!!

The hardest has been the morning routine between getting two littles up, dressed, breakfast for Lillian, and pumping. That seems to be the craziest time of the day.

The easiest has actually been nursing and nighttime. We've only had a few rough nights and it seems to be much easier with this one.

BIG thank you to *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!

Hardest: it takes me much longer to 'bounce back' than I think it will-- I just felt so tired the whole first week and I still need a good morning nap to function well for the rest of the day.

Easiest: everything else, really! All the kids have been great and love the baby so much. And the baby is a dream boat-- never fusses, eats great, so sweet to snuggle. We're having a great time!

Hardest: he was about a pound bigger than his big brother was and had a giant head so it's taking me a bit longer to recover down there

easiest: I really can't believe how good Jax is with his brother. It's like he knows to behave better and be easy on his mama. Also breast feeding is way easier this time.

Hardest is SHARING HIM!!!! He has been mine for nine months and I get so jealous when extended family of my husband's side that I don't even know come and try to claim him. I am like, he is mine and I don't know you. It is going to be really hard.

Easiest is nursing. I love that this is one thing that only he and I can do and since I don't like sharing him this is one way he needs me.

What has been the biggest adjustment/biggest struggle? Sleeping without her. I can't fall asleep unless she's with me

What has been the easiest adjustment/ or something you didnt think would be so easy? Nursing, she's great at it. I have to use nipple shields and hope to eventually stop using them.
