It's been 20 years since I gave birth & I feel like a first-time mom again!
Okay, so we all know the last time I gave birth was over 20 years ago with my daughter Shaniece. Currently, I'm seven months pregnant and every time I look at my belly, I still can't believe it. ¡Ay Dios mío!
A lot has changed in the world of babies since the last time I gave birth--back then my daughter had a wind-up swing for crying out loud!

Because SO much has changed in the mommy world, I often ask my girl, Danika--who has three kids--what to do! For instance, I had NO idea that baby food now comes in pouches and I didn't know that you can now purchase organic baby food!
Twenty years ago, breastfeeding wasn't the thing to do. Now I'm getting all of this advice about breastfeeding and how to do it and breast pumps! Still, to be totally honest, I'm not sure that I want to go the breastfeeding route this time around.
There are so many things I have to learn (or re-learn) before my blessing is born. I love that I'm able to go through the process of being pregnant and becoming a mom all over again. This really represents a new beginning to me and as a more mature mother, I plan to do a host of new things with my second child. After all, I learned a LOT from raising Shaniece and she has become a lovely young woman who I'm SO proud of!
But I'm also curious: Am I the only expectant mom who thinks things have changed dramatically over the years? Has anyone else had babies years apart and felt like you had to learn a TON of new things? If so, please share your advice below. I want to hear from you!

Back in 2010, Evelyn joined the cast of VH1's hit series Basketball Wives, where she became an overnight star with one-liners like, "You're a non-mutha******* factor bi***" (which became a popular slogan and led to a "non-factor" T-shirt, among other things). She also released a popular T-Shirt (which we want to buy!) called, "You ain't about this life." Ev was EASILY the show's most popular star, because, unlike some of the other ladies, she ALWAYS kept it real!
