11/16/2014 at 01:00 PM ET

She may make pregnancy look good, but Vanessa Lachey insists the path to parenthood is filled with its fair share of bumps.

For the actress, who is expecting her second childa girl! — with husband Nick, one of her toughest moments came while pregnant with her now 2-year-old son Camden John.

“I felt guilty because everyone told me about this love I’d feel, and I wasn’t there yet,” she says in the December/January issue of American Baby.

“I remember asking Nick, ‘Is something wrong with me? I’ve wanted this my whole life and I’m forcing myself to have those feelings.’”

Happy birthday, Camden John!

For their son’s second birthday, Nick and Vanessa Lachey put on their hard hats and created an adorable party zone for their little guy.

And we have to admit: We totally wish we were a part of this crew.

“Cam’s construction themed birthday party this past weekend was soooo fun!” she wrote Wednesday on Instagram.

The mom-to-be added a fun twist to the traditional construction color palette with bright hues of reds, purples, blues and — of course — orange, which could be seen on everything from the outdoor decor to the creative invites.

“I wanted some color instead of the typical black, yellow orange and brown. So here’s what we came up with,” she wrote on Instagram alongside a snapshot of his invitations. “I LOVE the pop of color!”

Nick Lachey may have already taught son Camden John a lot of new things — but learning to test the limits wasn’t one of them.

With the VH1 host and wife Vanessa‘s son set to celebrate his second birthday in September, the couple are learning firsthand what the terrible twos entail.

“He knows the word ‘no’ – of course he didn’t learn it from me, but he knows the word,” Lachey told PEOPLE at friend Matt Leinart‘s 8th annual Celebrity Bowl for Charity on Thursday.

“He’s a typical 2-year-old. He sees how much he can get away with and pushes the end of the envelope, but it’s a lot of fun.”

But the proud dad admits there’s plenty of exciting times, too. “It’s a great age. He’s discovering his personality, he’s getting into everything [and] he’s talking like crazy,” he says. “They start to figure things out and push their boundaries.”

Vanessa Lachey has one smart cookie on her hands.

The Dads star’s 19-month-old son, Camden John, is quickly learning to communicate with his parents and says more than just a few words.

“He says, ‘Avocado please, yogurt please, strawberries please, down please,’ or, ‘Come here,’ which means pick me up, ‘Love me, hug me, kiss me,’ — that’s his favorite thing,” Lachey, 33, told PEOPLE at the mobile launch of Farm Heroes Sagain New York City.

“He likes to learn, he’s so good. His verbal level to me is beyond what I’ve expected and he doesn’t get aggressive.”

But his language skills aren’t the only thing he’s mastering.
