Excited all over again

Just when I thought that I am going to relax and breathe better a bit, I got myself pregnant! AGAIN! Oh no! The sleepless nights are going to haunt me again. Wake up to coax, feed, burp, change and put baby to sleep in middle of the night while the rest of the household is sleeping. And that include my snoring hubby too, who does not care if the sky fall down on him!……… That was my thought when I knew I was pregnant early this year. *smile*


However as my due date is around the corner, I am overwhelming all over again. Yesterday hubby accompanied me to buy some stuff for the new baby as well as for my maternity usage. Phew! Tiring but at least we started to stock up some items for the baby arrival. Luckily this time round I do not need to buy so many items since there some leftover from my little gal, otherwise I would not know how much we would be spending! I know deep in my heart that with arrival of the new baby, there are so much things to do and things may get tough sometimes but nevertheless I am happy to be a mother again. Once a while, when I look back at little gal’s old photographs, the memories of her when she was a baby came back to me. Sometimes I felt that my girl is growing up too fast and I could not longer hold and hug her like a baby.

My little gal is 3 years old plus now. She is much easier to take care of now, no more night feeding and she eats what I cook. I guess partly she is a girl, she tends to be busybody and chatty. She can be a helpful helper around the house too. But with new baby along the way, I think I would be concentrating more on the new baby. Probably my little gal will feel neglected by me, but I am glad that I have hubby and her sister and brother to look after my little gal. She may be the only toddler around, but sometimes we felt that she feels lack of attention and loves. She wanted more from us. With new baby, I don’t want her to think that mummy no longer care about her. What should I do to make her feel better and wanted, while she does not feel like a second fiddle to the new baby?

Brainwash her... Haha.. talk and talk and talk to her and tell her that the little baby is too small to take care of him/herself. Thus, mummy need to spend more time with the new baby....

Get her involve in anything to do with the new born. Get her to pass you the diapers, get her to wipe the baby's backside! LOL.. i heard that involving her makes her feel important and not neglected and hence, making her love baby more..

I read something like 'Love doesn't divided, Love multiply'. The more kids you have, to more Love you can give to them.

Hhmmm...don't know how to advise you wor .. maybe when you are caring for the small one, can include her and teach her how and what?

Rose, Communicate more with your little gal, tel her that she is important and that she is the elder sister who needs to look over the younger brother and the younger brother needs help from the elder sister. This way she will not feel left out but feel more important.
