bringing home kitteh number two

I'm currently pondering getting a new kitten to add to my family—which thus far consists of me & my eight-month-old female cat, Emerson. My main concern is that I've never had multiple cats before, and thus don't want to end up traumatizing Emerson, the new cat or both. Obviously they'll need an adjustment period to get to know each other & such, but aside from that... what are your best tips for adding a kitten (I plan to get another female, three months old at the very youngest) to the household? What worked for you, and more importantly, what didn't?
