Toddlers and Babies
There were things that I did to prepare my kids for siblings. The first was that we involved them in the pregnancies. They knew what was going on when it was happening. For Sweet Pea, it was great because she is so analytic. She loves learning about anything science...especially biology. So for her, it was a great learning experience. It was so amazing to watch her through both pregnancies and I think it also helped her to bond with the babies before they came. That was the main reason to involve the kids in the pregnancies. To us, the babies came into our family at pregnancy, not birth. Little Man was amazing too. He watched as my belly grew and my lap shrank. I don't know where he learned it, but during my last few months, he would come up to me, lift my shirt and point at it saying 'baby'. Then when 'his baby' came, he didn't go back to my belly but he went to her and she was claimed as his baby.
I love watching them and I am so excited to share their journey with you!
