I'll admit it... I'm scared about what my second child will be like compared to my first. Anyone else had these fears? My little Leighton was such an easy baby (as easy as a baby can be), and I can't imagine that my odds for a second easy baby are very good. I mean, children from the same parents are most often very different from each other, right? So what does that mean for us with the second?
From what I hear from my friends, it seems as though baby boys are much easier than baby girls, but I don't have a lot of data to back that assumption up. I'd like to think that it was my superb parenting style and all of the research that I did pre-first baby that lead to having such an easy baby, but I'm not sure if that's really the case either. Part of me also likes to think that my dominant, purebred Korean genes had something to do with how good our first was too... but again, I think I'm making things up.
The scary thing is that I only know of one person who said her second was easier than her first which was also easy. Am I prepared for a difficult baby? Um, no. What will happen if this baby cries for no reason, constantly? Lord help us. I mean, he's already being more difficult in the womb than Leighton was... never in a good position for a profile picture despite the fact that I've had 7 ultrasounds (well, in the first 2 ultrasounds he didn't have a profile yet, but still)!
Despite the fact that I'm concerned about his overall demeanor, there's not a whole heck of a lot that I can do about it anyway. Stay tuned, and we'll find out together.
