Sweet friend,

I know you feel like your world has exploded into chaos. Two under the age of two feels overwhelming. It’s like raising two babies, but one child gets into one thing after another. It feels endless. The diapers, the crying, the messes.

But sweet mama, it gets better . . . so much better.

Those sweet babies will grow up feeling like their sibling was always there. Your first will never remember life before a forever friend entered her life. They will grow up together and share sweet memories.

As they grow, so will you. You will learn along with them, and it’s a beautiful thing.

I know you don’t feel prepared for this journey, but God isn’t going to leave you hanging.

He has called you to be a mom of two under two, and His grace reaches into the messiest corners of your life, just like it did in your last season and will in the next season. His grace is sufficient, even when it feels like you’re not.

Lean on me, sweet friend. I’ve been there. I know what it’s like to feel like you’re drowning. I know what it’s like to feel like it won’t get better. I know it can feel suffocating and isolating.

But sweet friend, you will catch your breath. You will begin to feel human again. And this is all worth it. I promise that one day you will start to believe that as well.

One day you’ll see the blessing and beauty of this chaotic season.

I Am the Mother of Two Under Two

The days are long and the nights are short. The coffee is brewed but often never even makes it to the cup until the kids are down for their morning naps.  I love this life but I’m also exhausted by it. I am a stay-at-home mom with two under two. I love waking up every morning being greeted by my toddler with his wild excitement to start a new day. I equally love walking into my little one’s room and peeking down into her crib to see her beautiful eyes looking back at me. But . . .  Being the...

Can I Love My Second Baby As Much As My First?

When I was pregnant with my second baby, I remember wondering how on earth I was going to love her one as much as I loved my son. I thought there was no possible way; I love my son so much I didn’t think it was possible to love a second child one the same amount. I was nervous I wouldn’t be able to spend time with my oldest anymore and nervous that he would feel unloved, so I tried to spend as much time with my son while I was pregnant. When delivery day finally came, I still felt...

Dear Toddler, We’ll Figure Out How to Handle a New Baby Like We Do Everything Else: Together

In: Baby, Toddler
toddler and pregnant mom

It’s hard to believe that my pregnancy with your sister is entering the last month. It feels like yesterday that I got that positive test. I picked you up from daycare and whispered “you’re going to be a big sister” and you whispered “baby”. All those rough first-trimester afternoons where I held you close on the couch and snuck in a nap while you watched Nick Jr, they don’t feel so long ago. You were patient, I was learning how to be pregnant and be mommy at the same time. In fact, you’ve always been patient with me, with us...
