Yes, parenthood changes everything.  But parenthood also changes with each baby. Here are some of the
  ways having a second and third child differs from having your first:

  Your Clothes
  -1st baby: You begin wearing maternity clothes as soon as your OB/GYN confirms your pregnancy.

  -2nd baby: You wear your regular clothes for as long as possible.

  -3rd baby: Your maternity clothes ARE your regular clothes.

  The Baby's Name
  -1st baby: You pore over baby-name books and practice pronouncing and writing combinations of all your favorites.

  -2nd baby: Someone has to name his or her kid after your great-aunt Mavis, right? It might as well be you.

  -3rd baby: You open a name book, close your eyes, and see where your finger points.

  Preparing for the Birth
  -1st baby: You practice your breathing religiously.

  -2nd baby: You don't bother practicing because you remember that last time, breathing didn't do a thing.

  -3rd baby: You ask for an epidural in your 8th month.

  The Layette
  -1st baby: You pre-wash your newborn's clothes, color-coordinate them, and fold them neatly in the
   baby's little bureau.

  -2nd baby: You check to make sure that the clothes are clean and discard only the ones with the darkest

  -3rd baby: Boys can wear pink, can't they?

  -1st baby: At the first sign of distress -- a whimper, a frown -- you pick up the baby.

  -2nd baby: You pick the baby up when her wails threaten to wake your firstborn.

  -3rd baby: You teach your 3-year-old how to rewind the mechanical swing.

  -1st baby: You take your infant to Baby Gymnastics, Baby Swing, and Baby Story Hour.

  -2nd baby: You take your infant to Baby Gymnastics.

  -3rd baby: You take your infant to the supermarket and the dry cleaner.

  Going Out
  -1st baby: The first time you leave your baby with a sitter, you call home 5 times.

  -2nd baby: Just before you walk out the door, you remember to leave a number where you can be reached.

  -3rd baby: You leave instructions for the sitter to call only if she sees blood.

  At Home
  -1st baby: You spend a good bit of every day just gazing at the baby.

  -2nd baby: You spend a bit of every day watching to be sure your older child isn't squeezing, poking,
   or hitting the baby.

  -3rd baby: You spend a little bit of every day hiding from the children.
