As I’ve previously mentioned, before I had Alice I was scared of a lot of things.
I was scared about how I would handle two children.
I was scared about how Tom would react.
I was scared that the lack of sleep would kill me and I’d turn into a meanie.
I was scared about how her arrival would affect my relationship with Tom.
I was just…scared.
But in the past couple weeks, I got really excited and couldn’t wait to get the next phase in our lives started.
I couldn’t wait to meet her and see her and see how everything was going to work out.
And now she’s here.
She’s actually here!
And you guys?
It’s the best.
I love everything about having my two babies at home.
Alice is a wonderful baby.
Like…she’s a baby jackpot.
And Tom loves her so much.
He gives her kisses.
He gives her his cars to play with.
When he’s about to go outside, he’ll say, “Bye-bye baby Alice!”
He adores her.
Seeing them together is just an overwhelming feeling.
And seeing her — this tiny little thing — is just the most wonderful of times.
I’m really enjoying every moment.
She is so sweet, and sleepy, and content.
And he is so energetic, and loving, and hysterically funny.
I just couldn’t ask for more from my two little munchkins.
I know that I am a lucky girl to have such wonderful family and friends.
And I’m even luckier to get to be the mother to these two.
Having two is wonderful.
Turns out, I didn’t need to be scared.
(At least…not of the first week.)
