I struggled for a long time deciding if I really wanted to have another baby or not. I feel like we are strong as a "three" and was afraid another one would throw us off. I am almost weirdly obsessed with my son (Nolan, 3)... I just love him so much and it's hard to imagine loving another like I do for him. I know I will, and once I get to meet this little boy and see the two of them bond together, it will be just as good as the first time!
In the mean time I want to take advantage of the time we have left with an only child. Is there anything you did to make your first feel extra special before the new baby came? I know he is going to feel a little out of the loop, especially with me nursing and whatnot. I am planning on including him into most everything I can, and my mom and MIL are going to be rotating to help and to keep Nolan occupied.
Any suggestions to better his/my mental and emotional well being are greatly appreciated. I'm sure he will be wonderful... I'll be the wreck! ;)
Yes, I'm tearing up as I'm typing. Boo hoo.
