When You're the Second Born...

...you either learn to sleep through tantrums and loud two-year-old songs in the hallway outside your room or you don't sleep much.

...you get a lot more knocks on your innocent infant head. :(

...you hear the word 'gentle' a LOT, mostly not directed at you.

...you sometimes end up nursing with a Mr. Potato Head hat sitting on the side of your head or a Mr. Potato Head ear stuck in your ear (gently, of course).

...your mom doesn't always remember when or if she changed you.

...you have three people to love and hug and cuddle you instead of just two.

...the world doesn't ever revolve around just you.

...you get the benefit of parents who have been through this before and are a little more relaxed.


Love you, my sweet second-born! :)
