Good news, though; I have managed to find some cartooning time in the five weeks since our little boy was born. Thank goodness for the Moby Wrap for allowing me hands-free parenting time to break out the drawing tablet!
So now I have two delightful boys under two (I know, right? *cue scary music*), which apparently means I have my hands full. Nonsense. I just have twice as much to draw about... twice the love, twice the smiles, and 18 times the laundry.
Now, I'm new to this parent-of-two business, but I've made some initial observations since bringing a baby brother home for my almost-two-year-old, which I will share with you.
Reflections of a New Parent of Two, Part 1:
1. Toddlers grow about a foot and gain ten pounds overnight when you have a new baby.
When you see your tiny toddler again after spending three days with a floppy newborn, you may just fall over. My little boy is officially enormous.
2. This does not mean they are too big for baby equipment.
A toddler may show renewed interest in baby swings and bouncy seats, which I can report do hold at least 25 pounds (at least momentarily).
To be continued...
