|The Proud Big Sister in Training|
Yes, that sweet girl, wearing a "Big Sister" shirt, is holding a picture of her future little brother or sister! I'm pregnant! So, I guess in October I'll have to change my blog title to "Legos, Baby Dolls, and Baby Rattles." :)
My son had been praying for "a brother" for several months, so he was really excited when we told him that God was growing a baby in my tummy. He is very interested in the whole process and asks a lot of questions about pregnancy, birth, baby stage, etc.. I've really been surprised with how often he thinks about the baby and talks to him/her. He has named the baby, "Bagel" (because that's all I ate for a while) and he thinks without a doubt that it's a boy. "He is a boy. His name is Bagel" he tells people. He has also started pointing out other families with 3 kids and saying, "that's just like us!" So, I'm not sure how he'll react when we do have another child, but he has handled he news of a future child very well.
My daughter is really too young to understand anything yet. She knows that an ultrasound picture is a "baby," and that we call my tummy a "baby," but other than that she's pretty clueless.
