Just wanted to brag on my three year old, Noah, for a bit. He's become super interested in all he can learn about the baby. I cannot wait 'til the point that he can start feeling the baby move! Anyway, last night, even though he was supposed to be going to bed, he and I had some one-on-one time. I was watching a birthing video and he became very interested. So much so that he kept wanting to watch more. At one point, he told me to turn it off and he left the room. I thought he was done. He came back with a bottle of water from the fridge and told me to turn it back on. I was floored!
Noah is also convinced that if it's a "girl baby" - which he is hoping for - that she will come out with a bow. He was confused as to why the "girl baby" in the video we watched last night didn't have a bow. I didn't have the heart to tell him they don't have bows.
I hope that my husband doesn't have issues with Noah being present at the birth because I think he may be more mature about it than my nine year old!
