My doctor told me while I was in labor that this was her favorite quote from a patient and I now totally subscribe to it too. Everything was easier and shorter this time around: labor, delivery, recovery, breastfeeding, the works. Instead of being totally worried about how to take care of a newborn, I just worried about how to split my time between two kids and how to meet both their needs. So in that way, I guess it's just a different set of worries. But Justin has been a sweet baby (no colic has set in yet-- knock on wood), and Joseph has been very good to Justin and very patient with me as I take care of a newborn's many demands. (I forgot how much they poop!) I am still getting used to saying that I have kids, plural. That sounds so crazy. But I feel so blessed to have another beautiful, healthy boy and to be a new mom again.
