savanna doesn't get confused between her little brother and the baby in you? does she refer to her little brother as her baby? i guess i try talking to xandra about it, and see what she says?
Then your dd and my neice were born on the same day.
Let me explain a bit about Savanna. SHe actually knew with Sam that there was a baby in my tummy.She was 20 months when he was born. SHe would kiss my belly and talk to Sam. She was very very vocal (telling us she was peeing and pooping in her diaper at 16 months).
With my last pregnancy, before I was pregnant she told me that her sister was with Jesus, and it was almost time for her to be in my tummy. I told her we would need to wait a bit. So she went to my dh and said *Daddy, I want my sister, both of them*. We were floored. And then even more so when I got pregnant right around when she said that. From the first time we told her there was a baby in my tummy she was telling me it was two sisters. Then when I lost the baby (ies, we are about 90% sure it was in fact twins) and we told her she cried. We told her that our baby had to go back to live with Jesus, she said *My sister?* and then cried. Poor kid, her puppy ran away (or was let out, but that's another story) the same day. Very sad.
So when I got pregnant again, we waited a bit, but did tell her early. I knew she would be so excited. She cried. And she knows. SHe tells me our baby is tiny. When I eat she says our baby is hungry. It's really cute. So, I don't know, she just gets it. And she doesn't call Sam our baby. Not any more.
