Congratulations! and for adding a second baby in the mix, get organized now!

Night Owl Mama said...

Woooo WHoooot Congratulations
Enjoy #1 Twice as much before #2 arrives. He'll need lots of extra attention.
PLEASE ask for HELP when you need it, AND remember you don't need to do it all yourself. Remember the first yr is the hardest or the first 2 yrs if you have 2 that are close together. I have a 1 yr old and a 3 yr and an 8 yr old too. ENJOY

Congratulations - what fabulous news!

Mama Kat said...

Yay!!! So exciting...advice I would give you...ummm, how old is number one? Maile was 19 months old when Laina was born and I hate myself for expecting her to act older than she was. Maile was still a baby and yet because I had a LITTLE baby, I was treating Maile like a big girl. I wish I could go back and coddle her a little more...probably more for my mother's guilt than anything!

You'll do great though...my two girls are best friends now!!

Congratulations and great picture. Love the expression on his face. I only have one son, so I have no advice on adding an extra child. Happy WW and take care.

Jennifer said...

Congratulations!!! No advise, My son was a tad over a year old when I became pregnant with the twins. He handled it all very well.

Sonja said...

YAY! CONGRATS!!!!! :)

the brock clan said...

Yay! I have lots of advice...I will give it to you later! Having them only 1 year apart, I had to think of a lot of ways to be creative to keep my sanity!

Michelle Huff said...

My advice is to spend as much time with him as you can now; include him in all of the baby preparations; when you get baby stuff allow him to check it out and explore it; when the time gets close talk to him about what's going to happen (mommy going to the hospital, him coming to visit, mommy coming home with baby, etc). You may also want to get him used to the idea of having to share his room and that the crib will be for the baby and he gets a "big boy" bed. That transition is the hardest and the early he becomes used to the idea the easier it will be to keep him from back stepping once the baby arrives.

Kimmie said...

CONGRATS! IMO, there's really no secret to adding another baby - you just do it like you did originally, just taking extra time to never forget the one who was first.

Dominique said...

Congrads on your #2. I'm really envious.. I am hoping to add on a #3 to my brood if possible. I suggest getting picture books which show stages of the baby's growth so that your #1 is able to understand where babies come from and slowly accept his new sibling.

Sweet Annabelle said...

Congratulations!!! He looks a little confused...hahahaha It's only the beginning!

Jen said...

Congrats! It's a little more hectic, but twice the amount of love and fun!! We're thinking of adding one more to our brood, baby #3 and I'm nervous about that :)

Honey Mommy said...

I have two boys that are 22 months apart. It was hard at first, but now they are playing together nicely (my oldest is 3 1/2). Siblings are such fun.

Congrats!

Swoozie said...

Hip hip hooray and a big congratulations to you and yours!

Advice?? Slow down and enjoy every minute and every second!

Great WW!

Pam said...

Congrats! It's been so long since I had my second one I can't remember any good advice on how to mix them!

Jenny said...

Congrats! He looks so confused! LOL!

Miranda said...

Congratulations! How exciting!!

The Mud Bug said...

CONGRATS! Advice is to make sure to give #1 lots of solo time and also make sure to incorporate him into the pregnancy - take him to ultrasounds, when you buy things let him help pick. Help him to make a welcome home sign for the baby. Let him help pick a name (within reason).

Personally, I found the second to be the easiest. Not alot of difference btn one and two children (IMO).

Nicole said...

What fun news! congrats.

Hmmm, just remember that it was hard getting yourself and one other ready. I didnt think it was going to be a big deal but I figured out quickly that I needed to give myself at least an extra hour to be somewhere on time!!!!!

How fun.

Jessica said...

Hey...I entered a comment at mama in flip flops (or something) and saw your username...since my maiden name is Mcclure, I just thought I'd come take a peek.
Life with two is almost as easy as life with one...I mean, you've already had some practice, now it's time to put what you learned and want to differently to use.
Good luck. :)

Oh, and my Mcclure roots are from Jonesville, LA area.

Kelley with Amy's Angels said...

Congrats!! : )

Katie Patterson said...

Good for you!!!!!! I can't wait to add our number 2 but we are waiting until my little guy is 1. We want them close together!!!

Tina said...

Congratulations!! As far as advice? Hold on tight!! You are going to be one busy momma!!

Jean Stockdale said...

the tichenor family said...

Soooooo exciting! When's the official due date?!

Jennifer said...

Congratulations! I'm so happy for you all! I don't have any advice on this matter, as the hubs and I are always back and forth on when we should start trying again, but I know one thing: SLEEP. ;-)

Alexandra said...

yeah!!!!!

Cindi @ Moomette's Magnificents said...

Congrats!

Advice - set aside extra pocket change of about $200k from now until they're 18-22 or so.

April said...

Congrats, and all our best from over here in Canada! We just had #2 this summer, and my little guy is 3. We are still adjusting, but things are much easier with the baby this time around...it is just managing the preschooler that I'm still learning about... Blessings!

Jingle said...

Congratulations!

Mel Fraase said...

Wow! Congrats! When I had #2 (and #3 and #4) I was freaked out to go shopping alone. I finally did it and it wasn't nearly as bad as I had imagined. I say whatever comes up, just jump in! Good luck!!
