Coming Second

posted in: Baby, Scrumplet, Second Pregnancy 0 comments

I am co-hosting a fun link up with Galit Breen of These Little Waves from December 5-9, Memories Captured. You have a chance to win a 16 x 20 Canvas Press photo print! More details here!


Dear Baby Scrumplet,

Do you like your nickname? I hope you do, your father and I plagiarized borrowed it from Roald Dahl, one of our favorite authors, whom you’ll have the pleasure of reading when you’re old enough.

You’re 17 weeks in the making now, and your Mama? Sucks.

I have only taken one belly shot 3 weeks ago, and have no idea when the next one will be.

I have not written down in excitement, any belly measurements or weight gain or new sensations such as feeling you move (and I did, at 12 weeks, you sure are active!).

I have not been very diligent with letting you ‘listen’ to classical music, or singing ‘Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star’ to you, like I did with your big brother when he was gestating.

I have not shown you off via my growing belly to my friends, as I’ve been mostly hibernating at home, having been hit hard by two flu viruses in the past 3 months, and having to care for your big brother.

I hope you forgive me, my dear one.

Because it does not mean I love you any less, Scrumplet.

It does not mean I am any less excited about you.

It does not mean you are not as wanted, because ohmygod, I dreamed of you long before you were conceived, my ache for your existence penetrating my very core, and when we found out you were coming, I cried tears of joy.

All this just means that I am now going to be a Mama of two, not one.

I am more experienced, I know what to expect and I know what to do (at least, I hope so).

I also have more on my plate, with your big brother at the stage where he needs me more than ever.

So know this, Scrumplet…… Already, I love you fierce. I love you with all my heart.

And I look forward to meeting you as much as I did your brother.

Your Mama.

    Subsequent pregnancies were equally as exciting but in an experienced Mama-sort-of-way. Enjoy it Alison. When #2 comes, #1 will most likely go through a bit of a jealousy stage and seek out your attention even more until he gets use to the change AND he will. Don’t worry. It’s all good in the end.

    Oh with the first I did so much more. Life gets hectic with two and the second time around I’m not able to do everything that I did with my oldest, but it’s ok. He gets lots and lots of attention 🙂 Congrats to you – it’s such an exciting time!

    • November 30, 2011 Alison

      That is assuring, I need to feel less guilty!

  • November 30, 2011 Carolyn

    I did a lot less with the second. Sure, I kept a journal, but I didn’t engage as much. I think it is because I was so busy with a toddler I didn’t have time like I did the first time around!

      Belly photos will be coming soon!

  • November 30, 2011 Christine

    I didn’t really have time to even think when I was pregnant with #2 because I didn’t find out til I was 20 weeks along! Long story…short pregnancy. All in all, every pregnancy and addition to our family got better and better. And even though each new baby got less and less of my attention than the sibling before, they had the adoring attention of a big brother, sister, or both and that is truly a gift!

I feel terrible about it but where can I find the time or energy? I am so excited about it’s arrival tho, even more than the first time perhaps because I know what joys are to come!

    That nickname is just too cute! Pregnancy the second time around is definitely different. You might not do all the little things you did with the first, but like you said, it doesn’t mean you care any less. I love that you started feeling this baby at 12 weeks. I remember that with Cooper too. I think you feel it earlier with the 2nd – maybe because you know what to expect? Who knows.

    • November 30, 2011 Alison

      I think so too – I know what to expect this time round!

  • November 30, 2011 Lola

    I love this letter! And the nickname. For the first several years of life my boys thought their nicknames were “JESUS CHRIST!” and “DAMN IT!” (That’s an old Bill Cosby joke) I envy you for having a brand new baby in the house. I miss those days. However, my eggs are expired and have been recalled. Besides, hubby had a vasectomy many eons ago. *sigh*

    Oh, yes.

    I remember thinking, “No wonder the firstborn acts all important and stuff..he was raised to think he was a king!”

    Yes, as each child came, the number of scrapbooks for said child dropped.

    Number 1: has about 20.

    Number 2: attempts at 5.

    Number 3: still working on it, pictures in a shoebox under my bed.

    Yes, I did feel this way. And I would console myself by saying all of the things I “wasn’t” doing for the baby in utero, I was still doing for my oldest, so the baby inside me would hear and benefit from it at the same time. I’m so happy for you, Alison.

    LOVE the name! I was the same as you for my second pregnancy and by my third, I couldn’t remember what week I was in without consulting my pregnancy calendar! It’s a good idea to be easy on yourself now . . . you might not manage to document so much about the baby after s/he is born — at least I never reached the same amount of milestone recording with baby 2 & 3. On the upside, you might not be broadcasting classical music through your belly, but the noise of family life with one child is being broadcast non-stop!
    Wishing you a healthy pregnancy from now on 🙂

    “Scrumplet” is adorable. I don’t remember reading that in Roald Dahl (one of my all-time favorites) so perhaps it’s time to re-read some of his best.

    As for the documentation of Baby Number Two…You already know my feelings.

    This lucky lucky baby is entering a house of love: busy, swirling, comfortable, blurry.

    There may not be as many pictures but there will be twice as much joy from day one.

    Every 2nd baby gets the short-end of the stick in the photo department, but they get the added benefit of looking up to/admiring/being entertained by the older sibling that the first one never got – so in the end it evens out. It really does.

    Oh Alison, I love Scrumplet.

    And you know what Scrumplet DOES get? The sound of your voice as you play with Monkey and read to him. The sound of Monkey’s voice as you and he are laughing together and playing. Scrumplet hears the love that will shower him or her when he or she arrives in the world, and the sound of a sibling. Those things are more valuable than anything in the world.

      I believe I totally will make up for it with pictures. One thing my parents did was they took less and less photos of each child – by the time I came along (I’m 3rd), there were maybe half a dozen pictures. My eldest brother had albums 🙂 I’m hoping to at least have as many pictures and videos of Scrumplet, as I did Monkey.
