If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you will have seen the announcement that yes, I am expecting! We are going to go from one child to two. Baby number two is currently growing and kicking away and not long till he is ready to be a part of the family. A little boy this time, so Lily will be having a little brother she can play with and teach things too. As with any life changes, there are always worries that come alongside it. Worries that tend to be common and surely will amount to nothing once the little one has arrived and settled into our way of life.
I’m sure most mothers will agree that the love they have for their children is limitless, it is like no other. The mama bear protection feelings you get and how you will 100% claw someone if they try to hurt your baby. I love Lily more than I could ever explain and it feels so weird to me that I’m going to have another child, I can’t imagine loving someone else as much as I love her. I can’t wait until the little man is here to prove me wrong though. From what I’ve researched your love doubles rather than it halving between the two and there is always more room for love in my life.
One of the other things I can’t wait for is to see Lily as a big sister, to watch her give him a bottle, care for him, play with him and I’m sure she will also teach him to be naughty, but it’s all part of the fun!
If you stuck around my little blog when I was pregnant with Lily, you will remember how much I suffered and how poorly I was with the pregnancy, unfortunately for me, it has happened again. I’m struggling a lot and with a toddler running around it makes it a lot harder, but as a mother, you have to power through. Don’t get me wrong, we have had afternoons in bed watching Disney movies or playing games on her tablet as I just felt so sick and didn’t have the energy for anything but she’s been a star and will happily just give me cuddles.
I can’t wait to start this journey as a mother of two and have my family complete. This will however be the last pregnancy I have as I just can’t cope with it anymore, I get too poorly and two is a perfect number. I have one of each and have so many future adventures to take and memories to make.
If you have gone from one child to two, please send any tips, tricks, and how you coped! I’m sure I will need all the help I can get as well as making sure I focus more on my own self-care too. Roll on April for my little prince to arrive!
