There are so many things I do with my second child that I would have freaked out about with my first....like this. Putting Evan in the swing at the park. He has a super strong neck and can sit up well, but he's little and just kinda props himself forward against the swing seat. He LOVED it. I probably waited until Lauren was 18 months before I put her in this! (kidding, but I don't remember and I may be correct!)
Also, feeding is much different. Sure, go ahead...gum a cheese stick! You'll be fine. Gag a little. Work it out! The first time Lauren ate solids I may have watered the cherrios down to see how she would react. Evan gnawed on a tortilla chip last night and loves anything hard to soothe his teething gums! There is a reason why second children are different! Because the parent is different the second time around! It gives me a whole new set of freedoms I did not have with baby #1. Case in point: My sister and I are 17 months apart. If I started a list of all the age requirements on certain activities or freedoms I experienced and then compared it to her list as the second child...........PLEASE! So just wait Evan! Sissy is breaking me in!
