Obviously, as the weeks went on, I did gain confidence with experience and my hormones evened out. We developed a routine and life evolved. However, I was still nervous that I was going to feel like this after bringing home this baby and then have a 3 year old to take care of on top of that.
Luckily, this experience has been a complete 180 from the first time.
I had very minimal pain from the c-section. There has been almost no random crying jags for no reason. Breast feeding is going amazingly well, she is a star nurser.
She is a pretty easy baby. There is still some sleep deprivation, but it is not so devastating like it was the first time. Adding another little is not such a lifestyle change like it was the first time.
Big brother has shown no jealousy and is completely smitten with the new lady of the house. He is eager to help with feeding, burping, bathing, changing and entertaining her.
So we are doing pretty great here:) I am soaking up this wonderful, but fleeting, time. In fact, it is going so well, makes me want to do it again sometime...maybe.
