readying the big sister for baby #2
Honestly, I think (and hope) that she'll be great. She has been very interested in my belly throughout the pregnancy and knows that "her baby" is in there.
A normal baby-related conversation goes like this:
M: Where's the baby? H: pats my belly. Baby. M: Is that your brother? H: nods earnestly. Yes. M: Are you going to love him? H: nods earnestly. Yes. M: Are you going to help Mommy? H: nods earnestly. Yes. M: Are you going to change his diaper? H: nods earnestly. Yes. M: Are you going to share your toys? H: deadpan. No.
I'll take it, haha.
She's also been very interested in the baby's gear. I have the bassinet set up in my room for G's arrival. Holden likes to put her stuffed animals in it, turn on the music and rock them.
The other day I peeked in and saw this:
I think we're going to be just fine.
(seriously, any day, kid).
