Will my heart grow two sizes with two babies?

As I round third and head for home in this pregnancy, I can’t help but have a lot of crazy thoughts running through my head:How will I ever love a second baby?

Will I favor Nolan over Paislee?

Will Nolan hate me for having to attend to the new baby?

How will I manage taking care of two children?

I’m terrified; like crying at the drop of a dime terrified that I’m not going to be a good mommy of two. I’ve become so used to Nolan being my one and only and giving him all of my attention that I’m afraid I won’t be good at dividing my time or love.

And what scares me even more? How fast time is going. Nolan is almost two and I can’t even believe it. I remember going to the hospital and getting induced like it were yesterday. I remember holding him for the first time and just being overwhelmed with a feeling of love like I’ve never felt before.

Will I have that same rush with Paislee? Will I love her immediately too?

I know, it will come naturally, right? That’s what everyone tells me… but what if it’s not true for me? How do you balance the love, time, and attention between two babies?

Although I’ve been wishing time away so that our little family can be reunited, I’ve also been soaking in every minute I can with my little Bubba.

We snuggle and hug and play trains. We laugh and joke and get “coffee lattes” together. We go shopping and to gym class and on play dates. And I wouldn’t change a minute of it. He may drive me crazy sometimes but at the end of the day, when he’s snuggling me in bed and twirling my hair, I am so thankful for everything about him. Tantrums, lack of listening, running from me in stores… all of it. I love him… and I can’t picture my life without him.
