New mom Maya Vorderstrasse has a right to be a little nutty. She gave birth to her second baby girl only a year after her first baby, Zoey, was born (she actually found out she was pregnant when her newborn was only two months old!).
By the looks of it, Maya has taken it (mostly) in stride, pouring any mama angst into a hilarious series of Instagram posts that use the help of a letter board to communicate her day-to-day struggles. A quick glance at the photos will tell the story — not just how hard it is to be pregnant while parenting a newborn; but also about the crazy, exhausting (and beautiful) life of a mom with two kids under 18 months.
Scroll down to see the Instagram posts, starting with this adorable one to announce what she told PopSugar was, definitely, a surprise pregnancy.
Remember these days?
Every mom can relate to this. Sorry, hubby.
Her husband is clearly a good sport.

YAS I AM! *Zoey's RIDICULOUSLY soft/beautiful romper is by @jojeebaby you can use code MAYA20 for an awesome discount, because they're the best! *You know I don't lie: Hazel HATED being swaddled, UNTIL I saw the light and got an @embebabies swaddle.
