Be a kid with them. Uphold the parent/child boundries but let yourself enjoy the freedom to relive or regain the sweet joy of just having silly fun. My grandmother gave me this advice when I was expecting my first child and now that my girls are grown, I can see where my willingness to really PLAY with them made all the difference.

Not all who wander are lost.

Like LipsSayAll, I'm an unconventional mother of twins. One of the things that helped me survive the early days with my twinfants was starting a feeding schedule when they were 10 weeks old. I was exhausted by constant feeding and changing when I read "Babywise." While I didn't hold so rigidly to the every four hours rule, I did practice the wake, eat, play, sleep schedule so that they would not expect to be rocked to sleep or breast fed 'til they dropped off. My kids now are GREAT sleepers, very able to relax themselves and go back to sleep, something I'm really grateful for as I listen to my friends who need to lie down next to their 12-year-olds to get them to fall asleep.

But, since you've already had one little one, I'm sure you've already got the sleep thing figured out.

Expect them to be their own person...that they will have vastly different likes and dislikes than yours, that they will have novel ideas that you never thought of, and that they will grow into someone unique with something that tho, like you is also their own.

Have a song or a story that's the same each night. It will become a favorite memory/ritual that's soothing to signal time to go to sleep and that you love them.

Some wise woman advice?

Use cornstarch for keeping the skin dry, yours included. Use safflower oil on your nipples while you breastfeed, it's edible and it will sooth and heal chaffing from nursing. It's also good for using on cradlecap, that flakey disorder of the scalp that some babies get.

Yup...this juiciness is from me....

Not a new poem by any means...but one of the best for parents with children I think

How a Child Learns

If a child lives with criticism, he learns to condemn.

If a child lives with hostility, he learns to fight.

If a child lives with ridicule, he learns to be shy.

If a child lives with shame, he learns to feel guilty.

If a child lives with tolerance, he learns to be patient.

If a child lives with encouragement, he learns confidence.

If a child lives with praise, he learns to appreciate.

If a child lives with fairness, he learns justice.

If a child lives with security, he learns to have faith.

If a child lives with approval, he learns to like himself.

If a child lives with acceptance and friendship, he learns to find love in the world

Okay, my advice comes from my own experiences with my kids. You sound like you are completely blessed with an amazing daughter. Your second child will likely be vastly different from your first child. This is usually the case when the children have the very same parents. Your relationship with this child will likely be a vastly different experience than the one u have with your daughter. In "The Sound of Music" Maria has a monologue about the children, and how they are each quite unique. This is how it really is with children. The more children you give birth to and raise, the more this will stand out to you. Nature is much stronger than you may have previously realized.

If you are ever are having a hard time with a child, feel free to admit it to people who care about you and are capable of offering support. If you run into things that seem far more complicated than you could imagine, there might be more to it than you realize and it might take you far longer than you realized to get to the bottom of things.

Anyway, that is my .02 for all that it's worth...

Love your kids...

I heard Toni Morrison say this on Oprah one day a few years ago and I began practicing it right away.

Smile at your child every time they enter the room. When your eyes light up each time you see them, they will always know you cherish them.

One other thing, echoing BigGirlzRSweet, you can never read to a child too often or too much.
