Things I've Learned Since Becoming a Mom of 2

Happy 1 week of life to our precious new baby boy! 
It's been an amazing week, it's been so rewarding not only watching a new little baby boy make his way into our hearts, but watching my little baby girl become a big sister. 
Now, I'm no pro, but I thought I'd share some of the things I've learned in the passed 7 blissful and sometimes chaotic days:

-I've never given myself enough credit for my multi-tasking skills. 
-Taking pictures of 2 is more challenging than 1 for sure.

-What's mine is yours, what's yours is mine.
-My boobs are a hot topic and high in demand. 

-Anatomy is a difficult thing to explain to a freshly, inquisitive 2 year old 

-I've really missed the smell of spit up [does that make me weird?]

-It only takes a literal second of turning your back...
-Breastfeeding a newborn around the clock + potty training a stubborn 2 year old= incompatible

-Comparing the two is unavoidable
-Name mix ups happen, especially when I'm sleep deprived. [Hey, just be lucky I didn't call you the dog's name.]

-There is plenty enough love to go around! 


  1. i don't know how you do it with 2... i am still struggling with 1!! especially the breast feeding part!

    how big was your little boy?

  2. yep, mixing up names happens all the time. it's normal. i even do it, and i'm not the mom. (sheesh!) hahaha

  3. Congratulations on your perfect little Valentine!!! I know you are so happy he is here. You seem to be handling being a mom of two very well ( you give me hope!!) He couldn't be more gorgeous!

    I hope that you are recovering well and that everyone adjusts as smoothly as possible!

    Sending my love!
