My darling second child, you have stolen my heart

I don’t know how it happened. I don’t know when it happened. But this teeny tiny three month old has managed to carve a place for herself in heart and she has made herself quite comfortable there 🙂
I confess, I had a mini meltdown the day before I went into theatre. I just did not know how I could possibly love another child as much as I did my first. I felt guilty for loving the new baby less even before she arrived. (Mum guilt is a very real and powerful thing!). I even whispered to my firstborn that she would always be my favourite (I’m not proud). 
Yet now this little person has managed to stretch my love to make space for herself. And man oh man do I love her. She makes me smile inside even on days when all I do is cry. I keep getting glimpses of the little girl she is going to be and I can’t wait. 
I never knew how much I could love until I had kids. And I never knew how limitless my love is until I had my second child.

    I felt the same way oh so long ago when I gave birth to my second child. I loved my baby boy SO MUCH that I felt there was no way there was any left for another. But like you discovered, we were both so very wrong. I’ve reassured a few second time mamas in the 17 years since my darling second child was born. You think that you cannot do it. But you will. xoxo

    I’ve been so exhausted from my new baby that I haven’t kept up with your blogs! Congrats and I’ve felt the same way before, it’s nice to know I’m not the only one.
