  • Hi ladies
     


    I confirmed at the doctor's office today, that I'm
     
    My first prenatal appointment is set for 9/10- gee that sounds like it's very far away.

    This will be baby #3 for us. My oldest is Julia, she'll be 6 years old in 12 days, and Ryan is 13 months! Once I have baby #3, Ryan will be 21 months!
     
    If anyone has children close in age, please give me some parenting advice because I'm a little scared!

    Congrats! My first baby is an April baby!

    Josh was 21 months when Matthew was born and let me tell you... I worried for nothing. He adores his baby brother and has from the moment he laid eyes on him. I'd read everything I could and it said that you shouldn't be holding the baby when your older child comes in, etc. so I didn't. I just said hi to Josh and he was kind of running around and after about 40 seconds he noticed Matthew, and said "BABY BABY BABY BABY!!!!!" and ran up to the bassinet trying to get a peek inside. He looked at me as if to say "uh hello mother there is a baby here and you aren't even holding it." I was figuring that would wear off pretty quickly, but 6 months later he still adores his brother.
    The thing for me was that everyone was offering to take Josh when the baby was born when really what I needed was for someone to hold Matthew while I spent some time with Josh.
    Congrats!

  • My first two are almost four years apart and this baby will be just over 3 years younger than the middle one.
    My big guy adores his little brother. I think the key is to simply adore each child individually and as a family. Once they know their spot in your heart is safe, you're good to go. In terms of household mgmt., it's all about organization and consistency.
