It’s true what they say…there is something special about your second baby. The second time around you allow yourself to see what you didn’t see with your first baby. You know how quickly babies grow up so you tell yourself to remember every little detail. Remember their soft squishy cheeks, their tight grip on your finger, their soft sweet sighs. Remember the first time they smile and the first time their eyes light up when they see you.
The second baby is your reminder that these days don’t last forever. That time isn’t on your side. A reminder to slow down and enjoy the little things.
Second babies are pure sweetness and joy wrapped up in a tiny little body.
When you have your first baby you are desperate for some time to yourself. If you are anything like me, you shed a few tears over the life you use to have…you wouldn’t change things for the world but you morn the “old” you. The you that could stay out late and sleep in. The you that could eat whatever she wanted and take a nap when she felt like it. But with that second baby you know none of those things really matter. You don’t morn your old self…you embrace the time you have with this sweet little baby…..a baby grows up so much more quickly then you ever could have imagined.
A baby that is content just to sleep in your arms or stare at your face. It doesn’t get much better than this. Second babies are pure magic.
