Hi ladies!

How many here are preparing to welcome a new baby?  Are you doing anything specific to help the older siblings prepare for baby's arrival?

I am =)  Expecting a little boy, Cole, in July!  We are preparing our DD (2.5) by talking about how great of a big sister she's going to be and how she'll get to teach her little brother how to do so many things.  She's excited =)

Great question, looking forward to hearing if anyone else is expecting!

I am expecting a boy in November! I have an almost 2 year-old girl, and I try talking to her and explaining that there is a baby in my belly, but I don't think that she really gets it yet. I do think that she's going to be jealous, though! But I'm glad I had a girl first because she is so caring for her baby dolls, I think she's going to have a lot of fun with the new baby and try to push him around in the stroller and give him bottles, etc.
