I have to admit when I found out i was pregnant with Ottilie I had so many emotions. I was so happy Emilia would have someone to play with. A sister to cause trouble with , I’ll probably regret saying that in the future.
The one sentence I always hear is you must have your hands full. I’ve heard it from family , friends and more strangers than I can count. I even walked into the doctors to which he stood up and said they can’t both be yours and no matter how many times I said yes they are , he for some reason refused to believe me.
Of course I couldn’t agree more I do have my hands full , it’s one massive juggle but it’s something that I wouldn’t change. To see how their relationship has grown is just an amazing thing to observe and be a part of.
There are so many highs and also a lot of lows. It’s non stop right up until bedtime , it’s stressful trying to manage looking after two children but doing everything else that needs to be done in between. Emilia will happily be playing and along comes Ottilie to try and play. Although Emilia doesn’t see it that way.
The washing pile has definitely doubled, the nappies have certainly doubled maybe even tripled two under two isn’t easy some days it’s very stressful , that being said I really wouldn’t change it.
They’re the best thing I’ve ever achieved and I’d do it all over again.
