adding in another child -- just some thought-provoking questions

I don't have many, at least not what I consider many (we're pregnant with our third). However, I'm the 5th of 6 and want many. My sister (pregnant with her 9th) said that transitioning from 2 to 3 was when she finally felt like she had a family (as opposed to a couple and two kids) but it was also logistically hard for her husband...because he wasn't used to being outnumbered! She said for her the 1 to 2 was harder, but her second was a very difficult child.

So after which child did you have the most difficult time? Was that child a high needs infant?

I fully believe it really takes a while for a family to adjust to ANY child. How long does it take you to adjust and get to know a new child?
