As my second child, Liam enjoys some advantages. When I brought him home, I was prepared for his newborn stage. I had learned enough from my mistakes two years earlier to be able to nurse him successfully. He did not enter a quiet house but Liam has always learned quickly from the activity around him. He has twice as many toys as his brother. But there are some disadvantages as well. The reality is that he must share (and compete for) his only parent's attention. All moms know that there are a finite number of minutes in our day. We simply cannot be all things to all people all the time. But I do want to be there for this little guy and give him exactly what he needs. This summer I have vowed to increase the quality time I spend with my youngest son.
