Try to get them on a similar schedule. Especially naps, and then sleep whenever they do. Don't turn down help if someone offers, even if it is only so you can get a nap or do some shopping.

I would set up the area you will be the most often ready with all your baby supplies and baby-proofed for your 1 yr old so that you don't have to worry about your 1yr old getting into trouble while you are changing the newborn's diaper or feeding, etc. Also encourage the 1 yr old to play independently a little more during this month you are together. After you bring your daughter home, your son could eventually if not soon, "help" a lot with his new sister by bringing you pacifiers, burp clothes, diapers, etc.

I agree don't turn down help and if needed look for help any one who might have a day off or something!! I think you will be fine though you will have your mommy instincts!! best of luck!
