I'm a stay at home mom as of almost a year ago and I'm having an OK time with my 2 1/2 year old daughter and almost 7 week old daughter. We just moved into our first home when my 2nd was 3 weeks old, so its been stressful to say the least but I'm hanging in there. Just wanted to introduce myself and if anyone is in the same boat, I would love to gain support!

Hi, I am a SAHM I have a 2 1/2 year old daughter(Mar 07) and an eight week old son(Aug 09). My daughter loves her brother and gives him kisses and comforts him when he cries, it is stressful at times when they both need something but totally worth it!

I'm a stay at home mom with a 2 1/2 year old daughter and 2 month old son and I'm going to school online full time. It helps that my daughter want to help with her bubba but it can get stressful. But I love my kids and love taking care of them. You just have to get ina schedule and stick to it. It can be hard some times but it can make it easier to take care of the house and kids and get my school work done.

I have a 21 month old boy and a 2 month old boy. When I was pregnant with my baby. My oldest would rub my belly, give my belly kisses and say baby. When I had my baby my oldest didn't know what to think at first. When we came home from the hospital, my oldest was a little distance, but now he wants to hold him, kiss him, feed him and help him burp. He says brother. I know he wants to play with him but right now my baby is to young but I am happy that my oldest gets along great with his brother. Just the other day my baby was upset and my oldest was screaming and being loud and my baby stopped crying and was calm. lol I love my boys!!!

My son turned two almost a month after I had my daughter. He has been doing really good too. We have issues every now and then but I think it is normal 2year old issues. I think I am having a harder time adjusting to the no sleep and then running around and playing all day. Hope everything is going well!

I am in the same boat. I have a 19 month old and a 6 week old lil one. I am also a stay at home mom. It can be stressful, but it's worth it.

I am a SAHM. Mine are 9,8,6,2.5, and 6 weeks.It can be stressful at times, but we seem to make it through. When my oldest 3 were little they were 2.5, 1.5 and newborn... looking back I don't know HOW I did it... but I did.

im a stay at home mom with a 2 yr old daughter (oct.2) and an 8 wk old daughter (as of tomorrow), and to top it off, my hubby is gone monday thru friday for work in another state. it has been an adjustment having 2 kids and being alone, but i love it. it really helps though that i have my mom and sister close by, and my inlaws close by too. the worst part is that my hubby feels bad because he misses so much of the girls growing up. on the up side, if you can call it that, when he is home on the weekends, he does everything he can for me involving the girls so that i can catch a bit of a break. hopefully soon we will all be living together again, as we are planning to move to virginia where his work is.

I am a stay at home mom to a 2 year old son (Sept12) and a 2 month old (Aug6) so I can relate. I can only say that my son has adjusted to the new addition better then I expected. It is very hard though having a newborn and a young toddler. They are not as helpful as an older sibling, but my husband and I believe that he will never remember being an only child, and therefore there isn't the jealousy...and they should be great buddies growing up :)

I have 16 month old (as of the 18th of Oct.) and a 8 week old (as of the 16th of Oct.). I officially work outside the home as of May 2009 and I go back to work on Monday. I am doing well. I just enjoy every moment I can, and I do not worry about the other things. I figure I will have time for them later on (when my babies are all grown up - they grow so fast) Do not get me wrong my house is always clean clothes washed, food cooked, but I am always around and playing changing diapers etc. It is great. Hang in there! Where are you located...I am in Texas, I am always looking for someone to hangout with and talk to. Especially when we are in a similar boat.
