“She was born on Saturday, weighed 7 lbs and was 19 inches long. Healthy and happy! Big sister Honor couldn’t be more excited about the new addition to our family. Thank you for all of your support during my pregnancy. It means the world to me.” – Jessica announcing the arrival of her second daughter via Facebook.
“As fate would have it, as soon as we were mentally prepared for adding a second child, we were blessed with the most cuddly, smiley, sweet-natured baby girl in the world — Haven. I’m not going to pretend like I wasn’t concerned about bringing another little one into the world. I mean, Honor was our everything! How would it be possible for us to love anyone, in a million years, as much as we love her?!? Frankly, I didn’t think I had the capacity. But literally, overnight, everything changed as little Miss Haven shed her bright light on us and all of our hearts burst open even further.” – Jessica on her sweet baby girl.
“From a parenting point of view, I feel like most of my irrational, overprotective and weary new mom behavior evolved into a more easygoing, laid-back approach with my second child. I’ve never been a true “helicopter mom,” but I’ve definitely stayed awake for endless hours doing research on everything I could do wrong as a parent — from accidentally exposing them to toxic chemicals to buying products that had been recalled by the manufacturers. I really wanted to create the perfect environment for my daughters to excel and grow but with Honor I found that I often made more mistakes trying not to make any mistakes. So with Haven, in a nutshell, I’m more relaxed. I try not to let every cough or bump on the head freak me out because Honor made it through infancy in one piece and I trust Haven will too. This calm attitude has definitely made adjusting to life with two kids easier and more fun. It may feel impossible trying to juggle it all, so don’t hold yourself to the unrealistic standards of being a supermom. No matter how prepared you are, you’re always going to make mistakes — it’s human. I try not to stress about it anymore. I let it go and move on to more important things, like savoring every moment I have with my precious little girls.” – Jessica on motherhood.
