I am excited to announce that our family is growing! We wanted to be a family of four, so we are extremely excited! It happened a little sooner than we expected, but I hear that happens the second time around! Check out my Birth Control After Baby post for more on that!
This time around we are expecting a boy! Luckily, all of our baby gear was gender neutral, and a lot of our newborn clothes are as well. However, since our daughter will be about 22-months-old when Baby Boy arrives, there is still a lot of gear to get, including:
- Double Stroller
- Changing table, pad, diaper pail
While I know that having two under two will be a HUGE challenge, here are some of the perks that I have gathered from other moms:
- All the information is still so fresh! I remember all the pregnancy rules and most of the newborn tricks. Like riding a bicycle….
- I can get back to “normal” “sooner.” I know that some people LOVE being pregnant. I fall squarely in the middle. The one thing I am dreading is breastfeeding. I love that it is great for my baby and I exceeded my goal for my daughter, but it will be nice to have my body back again. Months of pregnancy plus months of breastfeeding = years of sharing my body with another little human. Exhausting…
- Kids will entertain each other! This sounds like the best perk! Hopefully they will sit and play together in bliss (or fight….we will see).
