Why didn't I know??

Hello all!! Things are good in these parts. I would say that in general, recovery from baby number 2 is much faster... except for that contracting uterus. Why did no one tell me until after birth that it is so much for painful with each kid when your uterus is contracting and going back down. I keep feeling like I am having mini labors, but it is actually getting a lot better. Breastfeeding is also so much easier this time. I have been so blessed to have my parents here and Chris taking work off. I am trying to figure out the whole paying attention to two kids thing, because right now.. I pretty much take care of Gabriel and Chris takes care of Sofia. She loves her brother... but she is not exactly a soft and gentle natured child... so it is kind of stressful to keep Gabe safe from her without her thinking that she is in trouble for touching him and wanting to be by him.

It took me a long time to get used to having two kids too....actually I think I'm still getting used to it. It's hard to give the older one as much attention, especially when you have to nurse all the time. He's so cute though! With his eyes open he looks a lot like a Chris.

You will never feel like you give the older sibling enough attention. Don't beat yourself up about it. You look great!

Hey they do get faster. I've been wondering how thing went. I'm so glad he's here!
