Welcome! I'm also wtt #2 and I have an almost two year old son. We're wtt because I'm starting a new teaching job in Sept. and I don't want to go on leave the first year. I know how you feel about taking attention away from your dd, I worry about that with my ds but I also think a sibling will be good for him. Hope to see you on here more.

This is such a normal worry, I think everyone that goes from one to two children goes through it. But honestly, I think the relationship a child has with a sibling makes up for any "lost" time with parents. Having someone there with you, to go through everything, even into adulthood creates such a special bond that you just can't get anywhere else. My girls love each other and play together so well and I just love to see it. Of course they fight sometimes, but for the most part they are such good buddies. And you find ways to give them both the attention they need. For me it was making sure to read books, play games, etc. with DD #1 while #2 was sleeping, that way she had my undivided attention. Anyway, that's just my two cents. Good luck! :)
