Two Under 2

how much harder is it having 2?

My LO is almost 7 months old. I had an extremely hard time adapting to being a mom once she was born. My husband and I fought tons and I seriously considered divorce a couple of times. Since then everything has smoothed out and I love being a mom. I quit my job and became a SAHM. When my LO was born I never thought id want another one but now the thought keeps popping up more and more. Im terrified I wont be able to handle it though. Can anyone tell me there experiences with having 2? And how far apart are they in age?

    My second hasn't arrived yet, but I'm thinking (hoping?) that adjusting to two will be easier than adjusting to one. It was very hard for us to adjust to having DS as he was a very challenging baby, MUCH moreso than any of my friends' babies. Because o
