The Times They Are A-Changin'

I have yet to have the 2nd child fear most mommy's have of, 'How could I possibly love another child as much as I love my first.' I've just assumed it's my child, so of course I will love him the same. But lately I have been feeling some sort of anxiety and I can't quite explain it. My nanny swears the reason Driscoe has been clingy is because he can sense the new baby coming, but I kinda feel like I'm the clingy one.  I'm realizing my attention will have to be split so I want to soak up every waking second I can with him while it's still just him. I find myself feeling sad that it won't be just the 3 of us? Isn't that stupid? I could tear up just thinking about it so I know for sure my hormones have everything to do with this craziness, but it's so real. I'm starting to worry that Driscoe won't think I love him as much because, as everyone knows, in the beginning his baby brother and I will be attached at the hip boob for months. I worry how Driscoe will react to these big changes after he has had our undivided attention for almost 3 years.  These are normal fears right? Did any of you have this, how did your toddler react to the new baby? Advice? Funny stories? Anyone? Anything? This thing on? 
And to top it off, I have been looking at his baby pics to envision my 2nd sweet little boy's face, and well, scrolling down memory lane, ain't helpin'!

  1. Driscoe is gonna be the sweetest big brudda! He will love being in charge and bossing someone around while baby brother is going to love letting him! They are going to be best friends!! Which is kind of scary for us... :-/
