We were all very excited to add a newborn. How is the experience for everyone?

Honestly, it has been so much easier than we ever expected. I might be the only mom who says having two is easier than just one. But my first Dd is he'll on wheels, and number two is laid back. I am loving it

Easier than #1 and #2 were! Honestly, so many people assume it's harder the more kids you have, but so far, it seems like it gets easier and better. Maybe it's because we are getting over the learning curve and getting into the whole mothering groove? But I want to laugh when someone says "Oh, you have three! You must really have your hands full!" or "Two is hard enough, I could never handle 3!"
The first was hardest, second less so, and this time? Wow, it's not always perfect, but so easy by comparison, it's downright pleasurable. I never enjoyed the baby period before, like I am this time! And yes, it does kind of make one want to do it again. I could never have imagined feeling that way with my first.

I'm so in love with my baby girl. Its going amazingly well much better than expected. Ella is so good. I'm still waiting to wake up from this wonderful dream.

When I was pregnant I kept telling myself that this baby was going to be a cake walk and everything was going to just be naturally easy for me. I never actually believed that would be the case, but it has been I think! Leela is a really easy baby, and getting out of the house with two almost seems easier than it was with just one, now that I've been doing it for two months.

I have to say though, I love the both of my girls now more than I could have ever expected. My favorite thing in the whole wide world is to watch Leela watching Violet and try so hard to laugh. They're just perfect!
