Two babies under two is hard

Two babies under two is hard

hi mama,

You can do this! That is what I would say to myself back when my little boy was born. November 13th 2016 - the day that changed my life.

It will all be ok, I know it took some time to get pregnant, I know there was the miscarriage and the ectopic pregnancy and all the time struggling to conceive, but that doesn't mean you can't have a hard day. You've never done this before, your doing so well. You can handle whatever the day throws at you, you are a strong Mama and your little man adores you.

Finding out baby number two is on the way when little man is only 5 months old. You can handle it. 29th December 2017 - that day my life changed again when my baby girl joined our family.

Two babies under two is hard. But you can do it. Every day is different - remember that. Some days you can handle whatever is thrown at you. Other days you will struggle and will wander how you are going to make it to bedtime, but you will. Even on the hardest day one of the babies will look at you with pure love, give you their brightest smile or biggest cuddle and you will know that without a doubt they are your biggest accomplishment.

I know you feel sad about the babies you lost, remember them and know that it's ok to be so happy with your two babies now. You can miss the babies you never got to meet, you can also adore your two miracles.

Take each day as it comes, love them, cuddle them, enjoy them and know that they will forever be your babies and your brightest stars!

Love,
Rach
