Small fry reaches a milestone

Today small fry is officially 18 months old. I can't believe that. It seems like she was a little baby for so long and all of a sudden she has become a little girl. 18 months we have had her. I still can't believe the hospital sent me home with her weighing only 6 lbs 11oz. What were they thinking? Didn't they know I didn't know a thing about taking care of a baby? And yet we made it. She survived and so did we and she is super smart, cute, funny, full of personality and did I mention she is adorable.

And now here I am 5 weeks away from the due date of baby girl #2. As of late I have been feeling really pregnant and a bit overwhelmed. What am I supposed to do with 2 kids? How will I ever get enough sleep so that I can be a good and patient mom? Will there even be time to go to the bathroom? Will small fry feel like she has been replaced? Will she be really cranky if she is not getting all the attention all of the time? It has been her and I at home basically on our own for most of the time during the school year, now we are adding another baby to that picture. Um, just wondering, is it too late to just get a puppy?
I guess it is good that we don't really have an idea of what it will be like with any number of children until they come. We may not even want to think of the idea if we knew exactly how it would be right? Well come when you are ready my second little sweetheart and meet your fantastically wonderful, full of energy, (I hope she won't poke you in the eyes) big sister. We are excited and nervous all at the same time for our family to grow. More excited though for sure.

  1. Going from 1 to 2 was the easiest transition of all for me. 2 to 3 on the other hand? Nearly killed me.

  2. I thought going from 1 to 2 wasn't bad at all. 2 to 3 was even easier. Small fry will poke the baby in the eye and there are times where she will feel misplaced, but I truly believe there is no better gift that you can give your child than a sibling. I also love a comment that Dr Phil made: When you have another child you don't split the love you have between the two of them. You open a whole other "account" for the second one. After some adjustment time you won't believe you ever lived life without the new baby. Good luck - it will all work out.

  3. We have 2 that are the same age difference that yours will be. Yes it can be challenging at times, but it is so rewarding. Everyone adjusts, just be sure to include small fry. My daughter loved getting diapers for her baby brother! She also loved poking him and rocking him very hard while he was in his seat. But he lived!!
