So I won't lie to you girls, 2 is harder than 1. (But obviously SO worth it!) The first few weeks of baby #2's life is a huge adjustment, but soon you'll get into a rhythm and life goes on. That is, until #2 starts crawling. It's nice that Ty loves Jake (and vice versa), but not so nice when he gets into the same trouble big bro does. Let me give you a little insight into my life with 2 boys only 19 months apart:
A few days ago while I was on the phone, I start to panic because it is suddenly much too quiet in my house. I peer down the hall, and see that Jake has discovered the extra bottle of shampoo in our hall closet. Because we're potty training right now, Jake didn't have any pants on and had poured half the bottle down each leg. So there he was, in nothing but some tighty-whities, working up some serious lather on his legs.
Dan was home, so I asked him (calmly, with pleases and thankyous) to start a bath. So while I was dropping a very slippery #1 into the tub, I realize #2 is out in the hall eating the shampoo off the carpet, making nasty faces, then slurping up some more. He's still hanging on to a cold, and I am absolutely not lying when I say he coughed out a bubble before I wiped his mouth out.
Moral of the story: you can almost guarantee that one problem becomes two problems when you have 2 young kids. The people with more than 2 under the age of about 5 have my deepest respect!
Here's some pix I've taken just in the last 2 days of my boys literally getting into things they know they shouldn't:
