Be prepared for your older child to double in size and weight (but not necessarily maturity)! I can barely lift Delia now just because she seems SO huge.

My friend's 20 month old looks really grown up to me now, too.

I read about this phenomenon in Adventures in Tandem Nursing. Dd looks huge to me already, she actually is, the other day she hugged a little girl several months older than herself and she is bigger!

I totally feel for you! DD is nearly 23 months old, 35" tall and about 35 lbs.

And it's hard enough picking her up right now, so I can totally see how challenging it will feel in comparison to the baby.

Congrats, emiLy!!!!

Isn't that the weirdest thing??? I remember being so amazed every time I looked at DS or changed his diaper or anything after having my DD. My brain was very confused LOL
