Coming Home From the Hospital to Giant Children

Anyone else experience this? Each time I come home from the hospital with a newborn in my arms, my other children look so grown up!

I vividly remember bringing home my first son, that time my second daughter was just 17 months old, and she suddenly looked like a giant to me! I even remember changing her diaper- it felt like I was changing a toddler’s diaper and not a 17 month old’s diaper. 

It could be that, in comparison to the newborn, your other children are much bigger…or that they had a huge growth spurt while you were at the hospital.

    Yes. This recently happened to me when I had our second son. My 7 year old suddenly wasn’t a “baby” to me anymore. lol
