Having 2 under 2 and 3 under 4! Will we cope?

With less than 10 weeks to go until our family of four becomes a family of five I have begun to wonder how we will cope.

When baby arrives there will be 39 months between my eldest and my youngest so I know it will be busy but how will it actually be like?

With 20 months between M and F, and 19 months between F and Bubbles I am prepared for the small age gap. It will be busy, busy, busy!

M is so excited about the baby in mummy's tummy, always telling people how excited she is about it, hugging my belly and giving it kisses. She took to being a big sister amazingly when F arrived and I have no worries that she will be the same with this baby too! In fact I am so excited to see what she will be like this time as she is older and more aware.

I am not sure how F will cope. I think he may become a bit more clingy as he is, in general, a much needier child than little Miss independent. That said he loved playing with M's babies giving it cuddles and kisses whilst pushing the pram about and has also been known to kiss my tummy too. I think we will just have to wait and see what he will be like when baby arrives.

As for the sex of the baby, we have once again not found out, but when asked M is always saying she is going to have another brother, the baby is a boy. Does she know something we don't? Will she be upset if it is a girl (I doubt it).

Now all we are going to do between then and 9.5 weeks' time is to enjoy the time I have with two children. M starts nursery in a couple of weeks and I am looking forward getting to nap in the afternoon when she is at nursery and F is having his nap! That or getting to spend quality time with F if he is not napping.

I bet the next few weeks fly by! I can not wait to expand the family and find out whether I will have two girls and a boy or two boys and a girl! Just need to think of names now!
