It has recently become public knowledge that there will be a second Taylor boy. 🙂
Excitement and fear
It’s been an exciting time for us, but still you have the fear that something will go wrong, especially after our Down Syndrome experience at the beginning of the year.
At least all the tests have come back negative for Down Syndrome.
So we’ve taken our time in informing people about the imminent new arrival.
Preparing the brother
There’s also the task of informing Ewan that he will have a little brother by the end of this year. 😛
So far he hasn’t noticed that much, but soon I will have to start reinforcing the idea. And reading up about raising two boys. 😛
For now, Ewan can enjoy the sole attention of his parents for a couple of more months.
There won’t be much preparation, compared to the first time around.
- baby furniture
- boy toys
- boy clothes
- breast pump
- bottle steriliser
- lots of random baby stuff.
But I’m sure more cute little baby things will be bought closer to the time. 😛
Although we are old hands by now, it will be interesting to have a toddler and a newborn.
We are so used to a little person who is able to have increasingly intelligent and complicated conversations, that a helpless newborn will take some getting used to again. 😛
Even though I anticipate loads of work and little sleep, I’m looking forward to seeing how the two little guys are going to interact.
