Be pregnant with a baby of 2 years old!

When we looked for our second baby, we did it with the awareness that we wanted a partner for Diego, I always thought that I did not want him to grow up alone, since the majority of our families are far away, besides I as a unique daughter, I would like my son to experience the experience of having a brother.

We are so happy that Mateo will be soon with us, thank God, hoping that Diego will assimilate well the arrival of his little brother. To be honest, it has not been easy for me mainly when I do not feel very well being behind a 2-year-old baby who still does not have the awareness that Mom is pregnant and needs to rest. Here I leave some things that I learned in my second pregnancy, I hope it helps you:

1. Get help some days of the week, having a free day by week will help you gather your strength.

2. Make an agenda for your baby, keep him busy. Diego is still at home with me, but I have an entire agenda for him on the day:
- Paint - He loves to paint
- Play with Play-Doh
- Read some books for him
- Go to the park with him
- Keeping him busy is the key.

3. Establish nap schedules, those minutes or hours will help you rest a little.

Then I will tell you what it is like to have two babies 2 years apart, for the moment I can only say that if you decide to do it like me, look for help or buy some good and comfortable sneakers to be running by your baby all day!

The best thing ever is be a mom, enyoy it...the times fly!

Cuando buscamos nuestro segundo bebe, lo hicimos con la conciencia de que queriamos un compañero para Diego, siempre he pensado que no queria que creciera solo, ya que la moyoria de nuestras familias estan lejos, ademas yo como hija unica, querria que mi hijo experimentara la experiencia de tener un hermano.

Estamos felices de que Mateo pronto estara con nosotros con Dios mediante, esperando que Diego asimile bien la llegada de su hermanito. Para serles sincera no ha sido facil para mi principalmente cuando no me siento muy bien estar detras de un bebe de 2 años que aun no tiene la conciencia de que mama esta embarazada y necesita descansar. Aqui les dejo algunas cosas que he aprendido en mi segundo embarazo, espero que les sirva de algo:

1. Busca ayuda algunos dias de la semana, tener un dia libre a la semana te ayudara a reunir fuerzas.

2. Has una agenda para tu bebe, mantenlo ocupado. Diego aun esta en casa conmigo pero le tengo toda una agenda en el dia:
- Pintar
- Jugar con mansilla
- Leer libros
- Salir al parque
- Mantenerlo ocupado es la clave.

3. Estableca horarios de siesta, esos minutos o horas te ayudaran a descansar un poco.

Luego les contare que tal es tener dos bebes con 2 años de diferencia, por el momente solo les puedo decir que si deciden hacerlo como yo, busquen ayuda o comprense unos buenos tennis para que puedan sobrevivir. Lo mjor del mundo es ser madre, disfrutalo al maximo, el tiempo vuela!!!
