When I first found out I was pregnant, we talked about it constantly with Peanut, telling her she was going to be a big sister, that she was going to have a brother or sister and that mommy had a baby in her belly.
She was mildly impressed. At first she played along, sometimes throwing us a bone, claiming she wanted a brother. But most of the time she just ignored us completely.
I get it. She's only two so the concept of a baby in mommy's belly or a baby that would eventually live with us might be a little perplexing. Nevertheless, I didn't want to give up.
It seems to be working. The other day, while talking about it, she came over and kissed my belly, announcing, "I kiss da baby."
And now, in her prayers each night, besides thanking God for herself, she thanks God for the baby too.
I can't wait to see what a wonderful big sister she is going to be.
Any tips for getting toddler to understand that another baby is on the way?
