Too Much Love?

It's no secret that I'm head over heels in love with my daughter.

I gush about her every chance I get and spend a heck of a lot of time watching her with a busting heart.

And today as we played in her larger than life sandbox (our front riding ring), I wondered if I would feel the same about Baby #2.

Sure, a Mom's heart grows with each child... but I really love Roo so damn much I wonder what it'll be like to have so much love in ones heart.

I'm a little scared of my poor heart bursting.

And how in the world will I keep my eyes on both of these nuggets? Am I going to have to divide my time in half? The first thirty minutes of the hour is devoted to gazing in awe at Roo and the second thirty minutes will be labeled for Baby #2 gushing?

How do Moms of Two do it?

I'm not a mom of two, as you know, but I know exactly what you're saying! I love Babe so damn much it hurts. And every time I hear him laugh or see him smile or hell, give me a frown lip - I swear my heart grows even more! I cannot imagine all that being doubled over. I can hardly imagine how big Michelle Duggar's heart is ;)

First of all--CONGRATULATIONS!! How exciting!

As a mom of 5 I can assure that it will happen--I don't know how, but that's just how it works!!

You can do it! I have 4 and it works.
I like to make special time every month for a 1 on 1 with each. That way they have your full attention!

You will love both of them as your children and then on top of that, there will be special things that each one of them does that you love as well. It works, I promise. :)

Believe it or not, your heart will grow when baby #2 is born. I love both of my boys with an intensity I didn't think possible. Your life will be busier and there probably won't be much just looking time, but it is worth it. Mine are 1 1/2 and 4. They have started playing together. Watching them interact is beautiful. My heart grows bigger each day.
