And the special bond with your firstborn doesn't disappear. Its still there. It just is a bit different now. You'll adjust just fine I'm sure!
I was shocked and pretty sad after I had my 2nd because I didn't immediately feel the 'same' kind of love that I felt for my son who was 1.5. What I realized is that I DID love my new baby very much, I just didn't KNOW him very well yet. That kind of bond and relationship takes time to build, it doesn't just magically happen the minute you see that positive test, or even the minute you give birth. Heck, for me the whole bonding process took a few weeks until I felt that 'gaga over the moon' feeling. Hormones are harsh sometimes.
