4 months ago heaven smiled down on us and our little lovebug, Celia, was born.
It has been 4 crazy months! No one can prepare you enough for the jump from 1 child to 2 children!
First of all, you are now outnumbered. If they are both crying at the same time, you have to choose whom to soothe first.
And Luke, who is 2 1/2, gets a little jealous sometimes. This manifests itself in tantrums, yelling, throwing things, etc. Loads of fun.
But the emotional changes are the most drastic.
I didn’t think it was possible to love another child the way I love Luke. But you can, and for me, having 2 to love makes the love so much more intense!
Of course it makes all of the other emotions intense as well…
If I get stressed, I get twice as stressed.
If I feel guilty over not spending enough time playing with them, the guilt is twice as intense.
If I worry about them not getting enought to eat, the worry lasts twice as long.
All of this said, I would not give this up for the world! I am so beyond blessed to have two happy, healthy children, and I can only thank God for allowing me to be their mother.
