Congratulations. I have a DS (8) from a previous marriage and now I'm expecting #2 (DH's first). We told our son while DH was on the webcam (he's in Iraq) so that he could see DS's reaction. We didn't really do anything special for it. DH asked DS if he still wanted us to have another baby. DS said yes and DH said, okay, well mommy has a baby in her belly right now. It was fun and DS asked lots of questions about it and then was disappointed that he had to wait until June to have his little brother or sister (he wants a little sister).
