    Merritt will be 7 this fall. He has always been an only “child” and In a single parent household. I am pregnant with my first child due this winter. Multiple people have mentioned to me how “worried” they are about Merritt being jealous of the new human. I spend A LOT of time/energy with him. When I got him 01/2012 I didn’t think I was capable of loving anything as much as I love him. I imagine with a human child the love will be even more. I’ve actually been very emotional at times about the potential for loving something more than him (it just doesn’t seem possible). Anyhow, I would love tips/tricks and ideas on how to make this smooth and hopefully pain free. I don’t want Merritt to be jealous or impacted negatively.
