I think having a second kid (at least so far) is both easier and harder than the first. It’s easier because we have a much better idea of what we are doing with Cai. I remember with Charis I was worried about everything, but we’re much more go with the flow with Cai. And aren’t infants always pretty manageable for fathers? After all, we are not the primary food source!

On the other hand, taking care of a newborn is much harder with a two year old running around. At the end of the day, we are definitely worn out. So far I think that the easier time with Cai being number two is pretty much balanced out by the extra work of keeping track of Charis. But once Joy has recovered from her c-section and we get into a good routine with Cai, I think we’ll be in pretty good shape.
