Hey Everybody. Our 2nd child is due Early November... We have a very active 2 year old on our hands. I know most of what he is in is "just a phase" but I am curious to see how other moms and dads handled caring for the newborn and hyper toddler. How did you handle sharing the attention? And were there any techniques that you picked up to help with the jealousy aspect? I love my son and don't want him to feel like he is going to be tossed to the side (I am sure every mom feels like that though!). I know by the time number 2 makes their grand entrance my little boy will almost be 3. Does this make a difference at all as well? Sorry if it seems like I am rambling!
