Btdt ladies - Sibling presents?

I was curious if anyone else was going to buy a gift for their newborn to 'give' to the older children. Yesterday I bought each of my girls a book from their brother - nothing fancy. Got my oldest 'Madeline' and my youngest 'Stella star of the Sea' from the Stella and sam series - if you have never read the series you should! It is an amazing wonderfully created kid world of imagination and adventure with a big sis and little bro and their dog. Both my girls love these books! Here is a link to the authors page -

I didn't do it with my oldest - but I might this time. It might be something as simple as a book or even a piece of candy. My DS is 12 and probably doesn't care much. My DD is totally different story. I'll look into this!

We are going ot get something, but we havent decided what yet. Our daughter has already asked if she could get her new baby brother a present, so we are going to let her pick something to give to him as well.

My DD has been wanting a stuffed Donald Duck toy, so the baby is giving her that when he arrives.  It will be right around her birthday, so I also got her a birthday card from him.  ;0)  She is giving him a stuffed Dumbo toy. 


She will be soooo excited to get Luca's gift to her.
