Jordi - my DSS7 has decided he wants to name the baby "Larry" - we have no idea where that came from, but it's not gonna happen!!
We took him to the ultrasound this week. He was good throughout (good = quiet.) The baby wasn't in the best position, so there wasn't too much to see for him, but he liked seeing the spine and ribs (so did I!!!!!!!!!)
We have the book " What to Expect When the New Baby Comes Home" by Heidi Murkoff (co-author of "What to Expect When You're Expecting"). It's good for his age and maturity. I found it was hard to get a book for age 7, seems like most are geared towards younger siblings. My mom found 2 more books that look GREAT but they're not here yet. I wasn't all for getting a book (nothing can replace old-fashioned communication) but it does serve as a starting point to further conversations. And each page has little things to do to make it more real - like "ask mom or dad to show you the clothes you wore when you were a baby - aren't they small!" type thing. So lots of talking about how he was when he was little (I don't know any of it, as I met him when he was 5) but his dad and him have really been bonding over it.
Spughy - his little world is going to change, too. Only child of divorced parents who give him whatever he wants, whenever he wants. His other aunts and uncles in town (both mine and his mom's siblings) don't have children. He's not great at sharing the attention of anyone.
